10-09-15 “pay attention”

8×5″ acrylic, ink on sketchbook page

This is one of those pieces where I think I have a good idea, I begin to execute it, and I almost immediately loathe what’s happening because it doesn’t fit what my brain envisioned. I kept working on it, but it still isn’t all I had hoped it would be. But that’s the nature of the daily work.

The quote is by poet and teacher Marianne Taylor of Mt. Vernon, one of those I interviewed in my Beyond 9-11 project. Don’t forget to click on the picture to see a full-size version (that way you can read the quote!).
