Fatigue and drawing


I'm completely uninspired this week and haven't done much drawing or painting. Its likely fatigue that's my undoing and an four day weekend should help that as well as give me some extra time to get back on track again.

Meanwhile, I'll share another of the letters that I have elaborated on. This is out of the 'bedtime' sketchbook. This sketchbook lives on the table beside my bed and some nights before I fall asleep I draw in it. Sometimes things out of my imagination, sometimes things from magazines. Its a repository for the strange and wonderful as well as the strange and ugly. But it is all practice and ensures that something goes on paper most days, even if I don't have time and energy to do so otherwise.

You've been such a production machine lately Jeanette with the water series...I'm not surprised. I hope you do get some good rest this weekend.

One of my "dreams" this year was to do a nightstand sketchbook like you have. I was real hot on it for a short while...not so much lately. Once things calm down I'll return to it again.

Sending you thoughts of rest and inspiration...
