Thanks for sharing what you’ve been up to in the studio. As I’ve said before, you have a gift for helping artists feel free to experiment 🙂 I will miss seeing you in Santa Barbara this year…

Thank you Skip. This sets me back on the road after ‘getting stuck’ and helps to refresh my thoughts as I face the blank paper. Best wishes for Pemaquid this year.

HI Todd, I hope by now the question you posed is mute. When faced with the dilemma you are in I do one of two things. Approach one is to knuckle down and get over it by going through it. My second approach is to make a major change. This could be a change in materials , size, subject or anything to restores enthusiasm. I know that when I am not excited about what I am doing there is little chance of success. Good luck, Skip

Hi Skip, I was going over my notes from one of your classes, and I have a question. You said that if your emphasis is on the line, then don’t just “fill in” the lines with color. Can you give me some examples of artists who emphasize line and incorporate color interestingly? Miro is the only one who comes to mind,and maybe (if I’m understanding the concept) and perhaps Cy Twombly. Thank you.

Take a look at Tom Dixon and Tom Lieber. Both of these artist feature line and not outline. Color, while adding much to the feeling tone of the image, is not front and foremost.
