Digging It

Cloverside Farm by Levin "Cloverside Farm"
graphite sketch in moleski

I just have to say that I'm really grooving on sketching these Route 40 scenes in my moleskine journal. Each time I do it I feel like I've settled something in my mind. My vision seems to be gelling. Things just feel easier. Maybe it is the promise of spring or that I've been working far more regularly now but there is the great feeling of almost owning what I am looking at. I've had these moments before but lately they come more often and stay with me. Perhaps only other artists will understand this. Maybe everyone has these moments with their own efforts. It's so cool when things just make sense on their own without trying to make order of it all. Time to stop sniffing so much turpentine I think.

More posts from my sketchbook and plenty of new paintings in their infancy to share. Also, I plan to update the Soulful Studios website in the next month or two. Stay tuned.

Turpentine :) watch out for that stuff. i like your being happy, naturally... and your being naturally happy as well, Lori. Your sketch here is stellar. Again. Makes me want to visit the farm there. The city girl in me could use some "countrifying."
