Drawing-a-Day #199
"A New Telling of the Old Story"
5.5" x 5.5"

And now onto the main course... Just watched a clip of Ian Mckellen
from 1979... (Man he was a handsome devil! Still IS as far as I'm concerned....)...giving a discourse on the last monologue from Macbeth (which he was doing/ just done with Judy Dench!) In which he breaks up the speech and analyzes it for the audience...It's
pretty darn brilliant!

Drawing-a-Day #198............................................................................ "At the Di Chirico Public Baths"
5.5" x 5.5"

Drawing all day and watching clip after
clip of various ,British actors mostly, on how they hone their craft, and how they got started....
Also on Tom Stoppard who wrote Arcadia (which I've never seen) and Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead (which I have as a film which he directed and live twice!). He is such a brilliant writer! R. & G. was obviously influenced by Becket's Waiting for Godot but is about two minor characters in Hamlet...but it's about what they do OFFSTAGE while Hamlet goes on elsewhere....Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen were in a brilliant production of Godot in NYC and also put on Harold Pinter's No Man's Land together AT THE SAME TIME....same run!!! Watching all this has reminded me how much I have wanted to get into doing some theater again....I did some in junior high/high school...(I was even a worm and had my own solo singing number if you can believe it! A singing worm!!). In the last few years I've been wanting to find a way back into it but don't know where to begin....Guess I'll have to find an amateur improv group or community theater to unleash my inner GIANT HAM on.... #showbiz #thespians #patrickstewart #ianmckellen #tomstoppard #amateurtheatricals #bigolham #johnshlichta #portland #oregon #sepdx #drawingaday #abstract #improv #sketch #series  #markmaking #greyongray #blackandwhite #ciaroscuro #smallart  #graphite #smallwork #forsale #whichwayisupforYOU #whatdoYOUsee #forsale #waitingforgodot #samuelbecket #haroldpinter

Interlude by Andrew Sinclair is one of his most recent works in oil on linen. These sepia studies are confident portrayals of the human form, adopting traditional techniques such as chiaroscuro and a warm colour palette evocative of 16th century Venetian paintings. This is my personal fave and shows Sinclair's incredible skill at capturing light and transience. #andrewsinclairpainting #sepia #palette #painting #figurativeart #studiovisit #woman #form #portrait #light #ciaroscuro #oilpainting #transient #life #study #artist #art

Awesome artist JEREMY Mann needs your help:
The (fraudulant) gallery @barbarafrigeriogallery in Milan has sold 9 of his paintings...didn't bother to tell him, delivered them, and now is refusing to pay him his money!!! Go to their page and harrassed them into doing whats RIGHT! Unfortunately, this kind of thing happens more than people realize...
OH, and check out his cool modern take on the expressionist/impressionist(?) urban landscape...amoung other things....

"In the Future None of Them
Will Be Real- All of Them Will 
Be Fake..."
5.5" x 5.5"

Has anyone read The 500 Hats of Bartholomew Cubbins"? (by Dr. Seuss...)?
That's kinda how I feel from day to day:
The boy keeps taking off his hat only to find a new hat underneath...
I kinda feel the same way-
When I wake up I FEEL like "ME"...
But there's something slightly different...
Like I am a xerox of the me from the day before...but different because it's
a facsimile....
A different vibe...like someone turned the radio dial almost imperceptibly...and I woke up hearing a different tune....
In a way, these daily drawings are somehow capturing this-- if you go through them, you can see the slight shifts from day to day...and for me, it's interesting to see what bubbles to the surface.... ........ ......... ....... ....... ......... ......

...........................................................Drawing-a-Day #192 ............................................................................ "A Better Way to Measure Small" 
5.5" x 5.5"

There's ALWAYS something new that one hasn't thought of....
Just when you think you've gone as far as you can go, pushed as hard as you
can push....
In the moment after, when all your aching limbs contract backwards...
there is newer energy budding...
Possibilities and opportunities are
infinite...
The apex gives rise to an even higher
apex....
Just as the smallest particle can always be split, unleashing more power....
You have NEVER tried everything................. #drawingaday #abstract #improv #sketch #series #shapes #forms #textures #lines #markmaking #johnshlichta #portland #oregon #sepdx #artist #whatdoYOUsee #whichwayisupforYOU #thursday #infinity #greyongray #blackandwhite #ciaroscuro #smallart #pencil #graphite #smallwork #forsale

"The First Division"
5.5" x 5.5"

Sometimes I start on a drawing and 
I struggle like a dentist extracting
the most INGROWN wisdom tooth...
And then there are times when,
after the initial dirty wound to that
ivory paper I look up only to 
discover that I've been inna trance 
for the last half hour or so....a near
complete piece before me... (This drawing was both those things..). All work is for sale.

VANITY
For months, I've wanted to find a skull ring. I needed one to be with me, like a  Vanity in still life artworks, something to help me understand human nature more deeply. I found this ring a few weeks ago and discovered what French philosopher Henri Bergson said about Vanity : "Au fond de la vanité, il y a l'humilité ; une incertitude sur soi, que les éloges guérissent "( roughly in English : At the core of Vanity, there is humility; some uncertainty about oneself, that praises can cure". I feel I know a bit more now, just a bit...And that makes me happy.

VANITÉ
J'ai cherché pendant des mois une bague à tête de mort, comme une Vanité dans les natures mortes, quelque chose pour m'aider à comprendre la nature humaine plus profondément. J'ai trouvé cette bague il y a quelques semaines et découvert ce que Henri Bergson disait au sujet de la vanité : "Au fond de la vanité, il y a l'humilité ; une incertitude sur soi, que les éloges guérissent". J'ai l'impression d'en savoir un peu plus, juste un tout petit peu... Et ça me rend heureuse.

"Crash-Test"
approx. 4.5" x 4.5"

I've been listening to a lot of audio recordings if M. R. James...
(Montague Rhodes James: 1862
to 1936)... Best known for his ghost stories...
I vaguely remember hearing an adaptation, (I think), of "Oh Whistle and I'll Come to You, My Lad" as 
a kid.... If you're a fan of the Ol' H. P. ('craft),
- who was an admirer of M.R. ..then
you'll probably dig the latter... Really great vintage turns-of-phrase, and more about the SUGGESTION 
of the eerie and creepy...rather than hitting you over the head with it.... I've been trying, for ages, to find a group of friends who might N-joy getting together and reading passages of their favorite books/short stories 
to each other...(I was read to a LOT as a kid and still LOVE being read to or reading to others...both my parents were great at it when we were kids...)
...M. R. James would definately be on my list of writers to read out loud.... #drawingaday #abstract #improv #sketch #series #MRJAMES #crashtest #blackandwhite #ciaroscuro #smallwork #forsale #smallart #pencil #graphite #art #lines #markmaking #shapes #forms #textures #johnshlichta #portland #oregon #sepdx #artist #whatdoYOOsee #whichwayisupforYOU
