The first pass of color...

“In The Hood”

My husband pronounced this “dark.”  Good. That means I’m on track with the mood and delivery.

Anyone who makes art knows there’s withdrawal and cranky if a project is interrupted  or we don’t make art for any length of time.  I couldn’t get back to this one for a couple of days and was scared I couldn’t find the juju that initiated the effort in the first place. The first few minutes of fondling color and the grumpy smoothed out in preliminary experiments with color and value.

Some people use worry stones.  Some knock back a few stiff drinks. All I have to do is play with crayons and I’m mellow.

I’ve watched and snuck up to place a few strokes on the way.  Looking forward to some concerted work on it this week.
