Judith Beheading Holofernes

This blogpost puts it all in the proper perspective :)
I had fun with the theme and variations. And the flying saucer Miyake dress.

January 27: a miscellany

This is how I keep track of my pictures:

  • Most are still in the sketchbooks they were made in.
  • I scan at high-res and label the files by the date they are "finished." If several are completed on the same day, they get the same date and a consecutive letter in their title. I rarely give poetic wordy titles although when I post works-in-progress on Instagram, they might have some pithy or humorous description. I generally use a low-res version for all on-line posting.
  • The finished sketchbooks line shelves or form stacks in my studio.
  • I write the opening and closing dates of the sketchbook on their spines. Then it's not too much trouble to find an original. The dates of books often overlap (so it may take some snooping to track down an original). And some works are on loose sheets and not in sketchbooks. There are piles of these stray works.
  • My sketchbooks should probably have a permanent and sympathetic home some day!
  • My studio is cluttered.

Carpenters

01-12-19a
watercolor, chalk, ink
Even here in the Eternal City
carpenters pause and consider
the scaffold
they've built:
It's strong enough.
Maybe tomorrow, 
they'll build a cradle
or a root cellar.
Or a plain pine box.
