(14) The Effects of Drawing on your Brain | drawing | Pinterest.

I love this article.
I’ve been telling my students something to this effect for years and I’m glad to finally have an interesting article I can read to them
I’ve been drawing for at least 2 hours a day for years….. I sketch when I wake up in the morning and I try to sketch every night before I go to sleep…. during the day I’m sketching all the time…. have about 170 filled sketchbooks to date…
it makes me feel pretty good about my chances of staying sane as I grow older for sure !

I found this artist’s work on Pinterest a few months ago . I loved his style.

In searching through my  morning media, blogs, artist’s websites , etc. I came across a blog by this same artist and  thought I would post it . If you are interested in seeing more work by him you can go to  “follow me on Pinterest” , ( scroll down the right side of my blog) and find his “page”  Enjoy!

Art Quote for the Day

So , this week is the last week of classes for me at Edgewood College ….. Christmas “break” is just around the corner and I’m looking forward to about 4 weeks of un-interrupted paint – in – the – studio- quality time.  Warm fires at night, staring at the Christmas tree all lit up and twinkling…… Heaven.

I also have a couple things coming up , sort of exciting.   I’m hanging several pieces of my work at the Sundance Theaters here in Madison this week  , AND,   a gallery in Milwaukee’s Third Ward District contacted me the other day and wants to know if I’d like to show my work there. Well…….. YES!!

Besides all that , I really , truly , am planning on fixing up this blog site. Putting new imagery up is my biggest concern…. lots of great student art has been generated since last I really updated my media…. and I have lots of images of my own stuff to post as well .

So, there we are….. stay tuned.
