Memorial Day


Today is the last day of the month, and Memorial Day to boot. I haven't posted since late April, making this the longest break between posts from the time I started this project in the summer of 2007.

The end of the semester was a bit hairy, but interspersed between my academic duties I have been working in the studio. I'll report on several fronts before long.

In the meantime, here's a detail from a sketchbook painting. A predawn drawing in the St. Louis airport from our trip to NY in March. In pencil. Then a twist: I cut the pages out, spray-mounted them on a watercolor block, and worked up a black key drawing. Subsequently I produced the underpainting (which reads a little electrically here) on a different sheet and put them together.

More soon. I'm headed out to visit a veteran's cemetery, and to draw.
