Night Pollinator + [clean] Open Studio!
I`m ready for my close up.
I even had time for this drawing and being born a painter, I could not just let it be dry graphite. No, soon I had watercolors involved. Then ink. Which brings me to something I discovered years ago in life drawing groups. If I used a pencil which erased, I made many corrections. If I drew with a brush dipped in ink, I did not need to. There`s a life lesson there but don`t ask me what it is.
Not really!! The top photo is of the late Francis Bacon`s famously chaotic workspace. An artist friend of mine once rudely commented that mine looked similar! Not any more!
I read that a museum has preserved Mr. Bacon`s studio just as it was when the painter was alive!
Go visit an artist this weekend. It`s so lonely in the studio, we need to talk!
