August 6, 2011: Resuming drawing after a tulmultuous spring and summer. I am up to date on enough in my life that I can draw again. It’s the dolls I’ll be working on again. This is just a continuation of what I was doing during the winter. The living room is set up as the studio as my house is basically a studio that I live in. It’s natural that the living room is the main work space year round. A large, low table is in the center of the room and a futon fold-up couch is where I sit, or I sit on a low stool right up to the table so I can be close to my subject. It will depend on the needs of the moment. Tonight is just newsprint practise drawing unless it turns out I am drawing well.
