The world is not yet done!

Summer 2005
"Each new piece of your art enlarges our reality. The world is not yet done."  Home sick, I'm rereading bits from Art & Fear: Observations on the Perils (and Rewards) of Artmaking, by David Bayles and Ted Orland.

There are many of us, and does that mean there's too much noise, or that there are more eyes to see?

For anyone who likes to snoop around  an artist's studio, the process images on Nimit Malavia's website scratch your itch. He's an Ottawa illustrator who is deeply involved in the comic scene. And the colour red has fallen all over in love with his inky lines.

This favourite of mine I painted at a life drawing open studio in Collingwood, Ontario. I taught part-time English and Math in a tiny school, painted at lunch and nights, and Photoshop re-touched for a graphic design studio the rest of the time. Bliss.

Sadly, my scanner of six or seven years, a Lexmark all-in-one, is faltering. Now begins the disloyal and exciting process of replacement! Any suggestions?
