Fox Tales: The Gathering

Fox Tales: The Gathering
Acrylic on panel

I kicked off the year with intentions of joining the 30 in 30 Challenge, and completed 3 in 30. And that's okay with me. My work is taking yet another turn--is taking longer to resolve or evolve or devolve.  Am alternately alarmed, surprised, frustrated, befuddled and energized in the studio these days. Part of the process, and echoed in life. I'm grateful for the transitional time.

WIP: Fast Sketch

charcoal and conte

Started the new year with a fast sketch of one of my pups. My goal is to get my hand unlocked--literally and figuratively!  Still can't quite make a fist or hold things properly, but I'm hopeful the cortisone injection I had earlier this week will kick in and do the trick.  Hope your holidays were merry and that '16 is indeed sweet.  Happy New Year!

Am submitting this for Leslie Saeta's 30 in 30 challenge.
