My short relief from running this blog w my art was much needed, yet its still quite a joy to come back to it with something new. I have turned to the basics of drawing for a relief from painting. It working out very well, I've sunk back into my 'old ways' of working from my imaginative funny spot of caricatures and lampooning innocent folks doing nothing more than dinning at a local spot (completely made up in my mind of course) and so it had brought me to a new enjoyment of a good laugh for laugh's sake. I'm hoping to have a little fun before I return to the serious work of painting buildings of note to those who've lived in the college town nearby of Charlottesville. Well on with the fun.
