For hosting this very fun Big Draw challenge. Thanks for all your comments on all the drawings too. And I mean everyone's here. I know you had some life challenges during this month, but nevertheless you continued onward, inspiring all of us.
I think one benefit of the challenge for me was not just in doing a drawing a day, which I've never done before, but also the reverberations in the rest of my art life. As with doing the morning pages a la Julia Cameron,(write three pages a day) doing a drawing a day helped me focus and opened me up to more ideas for my other artwork. Without this challenge, especially during this month of adjusting to a new living space, I think I would have languished artistically speaking. Which would have been ok too, but now---zounds this notebook which I only started a bit ago, is almost full and I can put it away and then take it out a few years from now and go Oh, that's who I was then.
What I'd like to do is take you out for tea and scones. However, since that's not possible here is a quote from a poem by Lola Haskins. "Room 4 (New York, oils, 1980--)"
"I am working on a new series: Gold
on Gold. Each, over an old canvas,
erases what was. I never thought
gold so subtle: the bit of dull at
the edge of an eye, a moneyed leaf,
worthy of the gleam heart of Angelico." from the book Hunger. Page52
