School’s Out (soon)

schools out cake

The third grade at my kid’s school has been drawing cakes.  And you can tell from the cakes what some of the children are thinking.  “School is almost over!”  And “cake,” of course, “is good.”

Koi …. continued

lastest version of large koi drawing

My large drawing of koi continues. 

Deep blue/green paper.  Smudgy crayons.  Bright colors.  Memories of water.  Static photo.  Interpretation.  Hallucination.  Sore arm muscles.  Contemplation.  And Michel Petrucciani playing on the stereo for good luck.

The supplies in the foreground belong to the artist who shares the studio with me.

This sheet measures 45 x 60 inches.  (114 x 152 cm)
