In the Studio : early March

two blue ink drawings with 19 lines
19 lines on blue ink [detail]

I arrived at the studio very early this morning. Made a pot of coffee and solved a couple construction problems.

Then it was time to clean off all the surfaces so I could take out sheets of paper. It's been weeks since I've had time enough in the studio to really work on anything brand new. I decided to take a look at some drawings that I had started as early as a few weeks back. This would help me get past the what do I do feeling that I get when I'm not focused on a particular project or series of drawings. It's like getting reintroduced to some long lost friends.

The first drawings I looked at were a pair of small line drawings. They were begun with blue ink. I decided that I would work with a familiar theme with repetitive lines — drawing 19 lines.

Now I was started.
