first man in years


I'm in my studio painting and painting these days. The other day I got this impulse to paint a man - I haven't for many years... (Yes, she's laughing at him - it is to be a diptych)

Today was a lousy day - everything I painted sucked and I kicked out a big bucket of water and Indian ink on the floor and on my paintings (not on purpose!). When I was to go home I learned that my bike had been under a drip all day - and everything was frozen and full of icicles: chain, gear, lock etc. I had to take the tram instead.... Now I'm tired, grumpy and feel totally unmotivated to do the 3 hours of voluntary work on the computer that I had scheduled for tonight.

Tomorrow should be better, right? (I must be in for a real breakthrough)

Thereza, Kind of small for being me: approx 70 x 50 cm. Do you consider that large or small?

the man alone is terrific - but as a diptych it tells even more of a story!
