One hour

Studio View

I squeezed in a quick hour in the studio today, not ideal, but I’ll take it.  I’m a firm believer that even one hour can make a difference, and that those scattered hours do add up over time.  I worked into some of the details into the third face.  I think I may have gone a little overboard in terms of the wrinkles in the eyelids, but I would rather exaggerate an area and then tone it down later on.  I’ll take another look tomorrow when I’m looking at the piece with fresh eyes.

In other news, I finished Twyla Tharp’s book “The Creative Habit,” which is embarrassingly one of the few books I’ve read in recent years. I generally have a very low attention span for books, so a book really has to grip me for me to get through it. I really loved her tone of voice, it was conversational, honest, and full of encouragement and a dose of reality at the same time.  It’s also reassuring to hear about creative struggles coming from someone as accomplished as she is. I think frequently a lot of artists don’t like to publicly talk about how incredibly difficult things can be, as they’re so busy trying to make themselves look invincible to everyone else.
