I recently found a picture of the dancing lion drawing above, called The After Supper Dance. Looking at the lions' paws and wrists reminded me how much I miss drawing figures, which I haven't done for a long time. The picture above left was snapped in the halls of the Education Bldg. at the University of Idaho. I don't know who the brilliant young artist was; there were no names on any of the works in the hall but it makes me think about the power of collage - that mouth! It also got me thinking about creating large figurative works with collage and finding a way back into the studio. But I like drawing on a table and since I like to draw life size that means a BIG table. As luck would have it the massively heavy 10' x 3' table pictured below appeared last week on the university's surplus auctions and I got it. So now I no longer have an excuse not to start...
In all of my ePortfolio work I talk about using the blog as an engine for collecting evidence and tagging that evidence so that during the selection process it is easy to filter. But I never follow my own advice. So as of today (1/15/13) I am going to begin dumping things in here and see if I can train myself to get in the habit of posting something at least once a week.
