We write to expose the unexposed. If there is one door in the castle you have been told not to go through, you must. Otherwise, you're just be rearranging the furniture in rooms you've already been in. Most human beings are dedicated to keeping that one door shut. But the writer's job is to see what's behind it, too see the bleak unspeakable stuff, and to turn the unspeakable into words - not just any words, but if we can, into rhythm and blues.

Hammock - Thumbnail Sketch


During lunch today, I sketched out my next painting. I'll call it "Hammock." What you see below is actually about 1 1/2" wide.

And I can see that I have problems with how I see this already. The palm tree at left is not over to the left quite far enough. The coloring in some of it needs to be re-thought, especially the sand.

I'll try to sketch it slightly larger before hopping into the 16" x 20" painting.

(Scanning helps me during the painting process because it helps me to see the work more objectively and correct things early.)
