just chairs

i'm a bit crazy about chairs
their lines
how each one has a personality
their placement can be as fascinating as the chair
they're talking to each other

some initial sketches of my new series
just chairs


then there's the weather
it's been a brutal yet beautiful winter in chicago
 a view from my front sidewalk

my view while running along the lakefront
so liberating to get outside for a run 
felt like such a rebel running in frigid temps
great way to clear the mind

hope you're staying warm wherever you are
and
if you're somewhere warm and sunny
soak up some sun for me

landscape

first landscape in many years is in the works. 
been daydreaming about creating a colorful, 
loose landscape painting 
with a hint of interior. 
came across an image 
that called to me. 
and, voila. 
here's the sketch on canvas. 

now just need to paint the dude. 
main image is a bit hard to see drawing 
b/c graphite is so light. 

you get the idea.

details below



a bit nervous about this one.
