Life’s curveball

Just when I think I have it all figured out, life throws me a curveball.  I thought the first of July would bring some regularity back to my life, but instead I have been concerned with a very ill close family member.  After a week and a half there is a bit of a new normal and I am trying to get some studio time in just for my sanity.

I had thought to be doing a series of smaller things, but with the ongoing events I don’t have the mental energy to make so many decisions.  I picked out an architectural streetscape which I liked for the trim colors and will be working on it (probably slowly).  I hope to post at least once a week for the time being.  Here is the moderately finished pencil up of downtown Nashville.  It’s pretty light but you can see it better if you click on it.  When it comes time, quite a bit of the trim is a lovely red.

    So sorry to hear about the illness in your family. Making time for art is always a good idea if you can do it. I’m sure this streetscape will be terrific like your others!
