friday field trip (from the sketch book).

march 8, 2012
emeryville, ca

my friend, jessie, and i have started a painting salon (with just the 2 of us as members). we meet every wednesday morning, lock ourselves in her studio with a LOT of tea or coffee, blast the music, and then draw, paint, charcoal, pastel, ink, oil, scratch, smear, etc . . . with reckless abandonment.

one of the assignments we gave ourselves was to pick an object and to draw it every single day for 3 months. i chose this antique key from france as my object. it was a completely random choice, as my office is loaded with objects. but now that i think about it, it seems the perfect choice, plus it has a deeper significance. hopefully this will be the key that unlocks my inner-creativity. there ARE no accidents in life, right ?

brill! love this! i should start this with a friend, too. i cannot paint. i cannot draw. i can feel locked in a box, but am trying to get out with making new things. good idea.
