For those who are new to this blog, I committed to a daily intuitive mark-making practice for Lent 2014: at least 15 minutes of drawing for 46 days. Lent came and went and I continue to make marks every day. It's been over 180 days and it continues to fully engage my imagination and curiosity. Every day I go to the studio to face a blank page and I allow myself to make ugly drawings. Some are, most aren't. The ugly drawings allow me to add layers and layers of marks because, after all, they are already failures. I have nothing to lose. Most of the ugly drawings become things of beauty. It's always a surprise when this happens.
Above is a surprise drawing: it's a sheet of sketch paper that I put down to protect my drafting table from inks.
