I have never worked on multiples at one time. However, I have realized that when I capture the images that I am working with during a plein air session, I need to quickly work on the drawing to put down as much as I remember, from actually being in the moment. I can then return to each and work on areas that call out for attention, and manipulate each drawing to bring out it's own story. I have one that I have yet to share as it just has not spoken to me yet. It just may need to be wiped down and a new story begun. There is still time.
In 17 days my second son, will be leaving for the Marine's Boot Camp in San Diego. I am extremely proud of him, and his decision. Yet, I am going to miss him quite a lot. The next few weeks are going to be treasured. I am sure this too will enter my art in ways I have yet to consider.
