I have made a grave mistake by not going to open studio drawing for quite some time. I hope Jamie Bollenbach reads this. His class in Seattle was awesome and I was an idiot for not going for months.

Tonights drawings were like starting over again. I’ve been away from it for too long. So I’m going to put a weekly schedule in place that will include most, if not all, aspects of art training, Still Life, Landscape, Figure, Portrait. I hope to at least work 4 hours a week on each.

I am an Artist and a programmer currently living in the amazing state of Washington. I have a passion for art, but I'm stubborn as hell with it. 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."
