The so called virtue of being in the moment during an
afternoon of short poses is more likesubmission to a drill – a willingness or at times unwilling submission to
necessity of blackened fingers.

I roughed out two small studies today- this may or may not develop into more finished work or may
simply lead to more studies or both. When you have the desire to go in all

This is actually the first piece from the same afternoon in which I painted the study below (wooded). Here I was facing the
north eastand in the previous
post I was looking down immediately to
my left on an embankment beside the road on a farm off Mineral Springs Rd.
This blog is dedicated primarily to the endeavor of list making - an inventory of sorts of various things I've done both in the recent and distant past and recent present - some drawing, sculpture, painting.
My interest in working as an artist has been predominantly figurative and I'm indebted to figurative sculptor John Fillion who I studied with at the U of Guelph.
