Are you feeling bombarded by conflict? News. Talk shows. Sports. It’s on every screen and every device every day all day. I think it’s really getting to all of us. Take a deep breath and hug yourselves. We’re all in this together.
When I’m not sure how to get my hands moving, my ‘go to’ subject matter lately is faces. Quick sketches, usually one-liners, distorted and that’s what I love about them.
This one in particular is a favorite because I cannot read his expression. Is it disgust, boredom, disbelief, exhaustion, disdain, contempt, interest, confusion? He shows great concentration and appears almost ready to speak. What do think he’ll say?
This is one of my favorite places on the Big Island of Hawai’i. It’s a perfect art day in paradise when I hike here, plop in the sand, pull out my sketch pad under a tree, drink a cold beer, and do a mini painting.
