Artist’s Notebook for July 11th

Digital drawing of campus architecture, Hamilton (Ont).

Digital drawing of campus architecture, Hamilton (Ont).


My focus for the past week has been a proposal for a commission job.  I can’t really go into details but if successful would be a really positive development.

The proposal pushed me to get my CV updated.  I also created a dedicated artist’s website.  The site is a WordPress product and I used a free theme to get things started.  In the past few months, I have been looking at different artist’s sites for inspiration.  I would like something more polish up and running before I start showing at group shows.

Otherwise, I am continuing to work on my campus building iPad Pro project.   This project is meant to work out the bugs of using digital created images oppose to more traditional drawing on paper.

Related to the working in digital, I am considering creating a work for submission for a digital competition for floral images.  This contest would allow me to judge my efforts against others with more experience with floral painting.

All this digital painting stuff is related to my discovery of David Hockney efforts with digital tools and the creation of digital paintings worthy of being show in galleries.

I will keep you posted on how things work out.  Thanks for dropping by.
