What an Artist Does in her Time Off

Posted Jul 2013

Nothing wrong with the previous post. Those Caricatures are great! But nothing much to do this afternoon at home. So just fiddling around with that new idea of making more consistent poses/pictures, I drew new Caricatures from some of the previous post's photos. It feels like 'wasting time', but I know it's what keeps me comfortable and fresh when I got to my next Paid Event.

Here's what I came up with. Once again, I can see that sometimes the pictures look smoother with the new style, but other times the pictures look more vibrant with the style I had been using for years. So one way is not better than the other. We just do whatever we do, spend our time however we spend our time.

It feels good to be versatile. Good to have more than one approach. There's no one answer that works for every picture.

We can't even pin down a one-answer-for-all-pictures about line quality. Sometimes heavy lines make the picture look more glamorous. But sometimes heavy lines make the picture look too chunky. By practicing, I get a good handle on that, but you can still never be sure until you do it. Each of my pictures are as unique as each of the people.

Update

Posted Dec 2009

Today's drive - it was the easiest ever. There was practically no traffic on the roads (Very unusual for going over the Throggs Neck Bridge). And the roads had been cleared perfectly.

Even shoveling my driveway was fine. It wasn't so cold. It was nice out there - felt like I was communing with the earth, gently scratching it's skin.

I worked at a First Night Celebration in a Library - It was nice and comfortable - Lighting and sound were plenty to my liking, I was interviewed on the Radio there (New Rochelle), and I felt very much appreciated by the polite guests.

Just goes to show once again that we don't have to be afraid to do what we've decided to do. I usually say that I learn how to live by creating the Drawings, but today I even learned how to live by doing the Work part of my job. We don't have to be Afraid! If we wouldn't have recognized it as a danger when we were babies, it's not a real danger. Fears can disappear like floating dust-clouds.

Most of the things that hold Adults back are completely unnecessary fears that dissipate as soon as we refuse to let them have any power over us, as soon as we refuse to let them affect us. Do what you think you should do to get what you want.

Best Wishes to us all in the New Year. I'm confident that I'll see a lot of growth in all areas of my Life.
