I’m really not sure where I’m going with these…

Owl/Skull

…but I know I’m going there slowly. I have a nice brass oval frame that I may use if I do this small and in watercolor. I may try it larger and in a barn wood frame in either watercolors or pastels.  Hell, I may even paint it,  tear it up and throw it away. It’s been known to happen. Lately these decisions seem even smaller than usual.

Sketch for a forthcoming painting…maybe

Girl With Dog Skull

   Here is the first of (hopefully) many periodic installments from my sketchbook. I’m using Moleskine notebooks right now. I like the tinted paper and the different styles and sizes available, plus the paper doesn’t get too roughed up when you erase, and I do…often. I’m not going to worry whether they appear complete or perfect. They are steps on the way. It’s just a glimpse of what may come to be paintings or at least some of the elements involved in my process — which is as random and disorganized as anybody who knows me even slightly might assume.
