Pond hockey sketches. Various sizes. Watercolor on bristol, and ball point on paper.
Here it is mid-July in Iowa and for some reason my mind wandered back to my youth and playing countless games of hockey at the local rink.
It occurred to me that this might be a good subject for a painting series; it's something I am passionate about, (pond hockey) and capturing a human gesture in a drawing or painting is absolutely my favorite thing, and maybe what I'm best at. (You wouldn't know I cared about this based on the previous 100+ blog entries, but the blog began at a time when I was exploring other things.)
I'll look into this. Stay tuned...
