No news from me usually means I am so busy there is no time to post.
So here is a bit of an update about the busy March and April.
Except for working and teaching and drawing almost daily here is what we have been up to.
Scott and I drove down to New Jersey for a weekend with my best friend Fiona and her awesome fiance. We did some walking around, laughing, doodling and I did a photoshoot with Fiona in preparation for my next painting. As soon as we returned I had another photoshoot with a former classmate of Scott's. I am trying hard to build a bit of a reference database, because the biggest problem with painting portraits for me is that i run out of references and models quickly.
Then a one day stop in Leipzig where we were overwhelmed with beautiful buildings and history! Then Bitterfeld/Pouch were the other half of my family lives with a 1 day stop in Berlin (17 km city walk left us slightly exhausted).
|Berlin Wall used to be right here.|
Of course I could post more of the two thousand photos that we took, but as always too many things to do!
One month ago I began a new painting and the process got so rudely interupted by our amazing travels, now that we have returned and daily routine is settling in again I should be continueing to paint but my head is still in Germany. Getting started is the hardest task. How do I bridge my current artistic slump?
A few things that I am doing to get back into the calm and settled painting mode.
I am working hard on my daily doodles for the dailydoodlez project.
Then I am following my own mantra of:
We also joined the Gym near our house, its time to get my body back into shape especially my lungs, so that my asthma is easier to control.
So wish me luck and I will post new work as soon as it is finished!
