Nothing Special


Just some pink sketches - I have to apologize for some of my scans recently. One of the scanners I use is very nice at accurately scanning & the other one is just awful & wants to auto-correct everything for you. (It's like a little kid that cuts their own hair thinking they're doing mommy a favor...)

Anyway, I got the new James Christensen book & I love it! I actually met him over the summer at the Twiggs & Moore Gallery & he's such a nice person. He drew a picture while he was there & gave previews of some of the paintings that appear in this book. (I don't quite know about his whole "well-dressed man/hunchback" characters, but I love his figurative work, details & textures.) I think he also figures that you can never paint too many profile views! (or fish...) I wonder if he does teaching workshops...

I love that bottom drawing and (of course) I love, love, love Men and Angels! It's funny you mentioned his figurative work, because I never really paid attention to his paintings until I saw some portraits he'd done. Now I'm hooked.

P.S. Post more "nothing special" blogs, because it makes the world a greener place.
