I only spent an hour drawing today as I was interrupted by work.

I had made a decision about 10 years ago that I would not use my artwork as a main source of income. I’ve never liked marketing and pricing my work, so I don’t sell it. I used to sell some still life paintings that I did a year or so ago, but I’ve stopped that also because I’m focusing on the figure. Plus I’d rather spend time on art than trying to sell.

So my very necessary interruption is work. I’m very fortunate because I love my job. I honestly really like what I do, so it’s not a bad interruption, just necessary.

Anyway, I could have finished this drawing on this session, but it will have to wait till tomorrow.

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."
