A Drawing to Start the Year

Dipped in greens and oranges I cannot make the right shade of brown

A splash of red

I throw in purple

Struggling in skin


This simple drawing I made during my hour at the coffee shop is a representative of my artistic endeavors

I am unsteady. A mesh. A halo halo of ideas

And it shows in the skin

A clash of shades

I decided to break all the rules and suggestions my teachers gave me on art

For instance, I should stop focusing on faces. I shouldn’t outline in black. Draw more bodies contouring and reaching. Find the light. Go darker.

I don’t care.

Let me paint with dirty water

With coffee stained paper

And a basket of eggs.
