Bard and Brew Before Gesture

I didn’t get a lot of art time in today because my wife and I attended the Bard and Brew showing of Henry V at the Tap Room tonight and it was amazing.

It’s not often that we get out and do something like this together, between our budget and our motivation to accomplish meaningful┬ádaily tasks it just doesn’t happen. Tonight was a wonderful exception.

At first I thought this was going to be kinda weird, actors running around the Tap Room yelling. But it wasn’t, after the first few actors had started their parts I really got into the story, what I could follow that is, and had a great time. Once again, I’m liking Whidbey island more and more.

We didn’t get home till after 8pm and my bed time is usually around 9, so I just decided to do some gesture study with Steve Huston on New Masters academy. I followed along with his drawing and drew the same figures myself.

My day is complete only when I do some piece of art each day, no matter how small. "There was a dream that was Rome. You could only whisper it. Anything more than a whisper and it would vanish, it was so fragile."

  1. I agree, this island offers more and more opportunities for the two of us than either could imagine, and many more opportunities to get out and enjoy ourselves…
