Ha…sometimes my misplaced optimism goes on display and it’s embarrassing. In the last couple posts I talked about “my loss” as in an inability to walk to sketching sites like I normally do. I rambled about how this would be an opportunity to try new things, do experiments, etc. Ha!
In the past week or so I’ve learned that my real loss has been any interest in doing anything, and to some degree a lack of ability to do anything. When you’re in constant pain, constantly worried about your health, and losing sleep because of both, it’s hard to muster either ability or interest in doing things, even things you love. Such has been my situation recently.
So…I haven’t done any grand sketching experiments. I haven’t experimented with gouache as I said I might. I haven’t done much of anything in fact except talk to doctors. Things are improving, however. Now I can walk all the way to the kitchen (grin).
So, all I have to show you are some small doodles that I’ve done while watching TV ad nauseam. I apologize for the lack of blog posts. One thing, though, is that these doodles are more loose than my typical street sketch and while I’m sure they’re inspired from somewhere, the subjects just fell out of my head when I took pen in hand. Maybe I can call these “experiments.”
