David’s Vermeer (after “Tim’s Vermeer”)

I love #Vermeer and I’ve been wanting to sketch my favorite of his paintings, “Girl with a Pearl Earring,” so I sketched my own quick/rough cartoon interpretation of her a few nights ago. Maybe I’ll ink it, but I like the raw quick energy here. Who is your favorite fine artist? (For the record, mine is actually… aw, heck. I can’t name only one. But the Impressionists and Post-Impressionists comprise my favorite art movement and all my painting heroes, (Pissarro being responsible for them all!) including also Matisse & Picasso & David Hockney & Chuck Close and…. SEE???) – David

Night owl sketch

I’m an incessant night owl. I often lie in bed doodling whilst everyone is slumbering peacefully. Ah, the plight of the restless mind. I’ve been this way since I was in high school. My brain just won’t turn off the lights. So many things racing within, so much to think about, to try and figure out. What is it? Why is this? So, alas, I do what I’ve always done… I draw, and dream… a dream within… or without… a dream. – David
