Downtime

Posted 11 days ago

During this Party, the Guest's attention was turned to the Video Presentation while I was still supposed to be drawing Caricatures. That's not an unusual thing to happen ~ so many important things go on during a Party. But I'm there to Draw.

Some of that other stuff can slow me down, but I keep on keepin on. Even like this time, when the room suddenly got dark. It's a good chance to draw some candid expressions.

Parties Feel Different

Posted Jan 2021

I still do get some in-person Party work these days. I arrive with my regular Party spirit. Energy. Ready for a Party! But the Parties feel different. The People aren't sure about what they can do. Because of the Corona Virus situation.

We had a great time ~ As usual, I get some great reactions to my Party Caricatures. But sometimes it feels like a swimming pool in a desert. What's happening to people? I wonder most about the people who don't even get out to these small Parties. What will happen to them? Will they remember how to Celebrate? Will they remember this type of Shared Fun?

Best Wishes

Posted Jan 2021

It feels so peaceful to look over the photos that are still on my desktop ~ not yet posted on my website.

I thik I drew these several Years ago. Reminds me of my Clients and their Guests ~ such good times.

So peaceful ~ I'm hoping that they're all still well, still as Happy as the day I helped them Celebrate their Special Occasions. Good Times

The Artist's Home

Posted Dec 2020

I wish I wasn't so scattered these days. One of the best things I did was to draw Caricatures at a Corporate Party. It was great being there.

Even though the venue was dark, the music was too loud to talk, and the Happy Guests did Not come near to any sort of focus on the activity, aka keep their faces showing while I was drawing them ~ Even though I have been focusing on Personal Events including yesterday's Dentist appointment and and ~ Even though circumstances were not optimal for Drawing ~ Even though all that, I felt so relieved to be at this Event. Drawing at Parties is where I feel 'Home'. Aaaah.

I felt totally Appreciated. Guests and Client were so Happy with my Pictures and my Performance. For the first time all Week, I felt respected as an Artist ~ nobody telling me to draw differently than I draw. That's what Artwork is about. Letting it happen. In the midst of it all

Here's one of the Caricatures that I drew:
