A 9x12 pastel drawing of the studio table from today. You may wonder how or why I do these drawings? The table is like a miniature landscape, and the drawings of this landscape are a way of thinking visually out loud. Some are better than others, but it's hard to know which ones yet, and why. Over time it will become clearer. That's what's hard about painting. One doesn't do a masterpiece each day, and it takes time to get somewhere. But I am amazed how much is available in so small a space.
