beneath the stains of time

The drawing funk is still going strong, but I've had other things to focus on. I've been looking back through my work, trying to decide what I should include in my upcoming exhibition. This drawing is an oldie. Over three years old, in fact. I have messed around with it a little since, just a bit more cross hatching.

You know, back then when I first made this drawing I really didn't like it very much at all. But seeing it with all this time between us and I feel quite differently. I really enjoyed looking at it again and reading all the notes. They amused me. I asked a friend what they thought about me including it and they said "definitely, it shows that art can be funny". That makes me happy.

So, if you visit my exhibition you will be seeing this one.

You know the drill; click on drawing to read the notes.

Brilliant! I could do with a few of those ;)

Wouldn't life run so much more smoothly if they actually existed?

If it's any consolation, the funkinator has me slathered me with creaticide as well. I'm drawing for the sake of effort. But it'll pass before too long for you and me both ;-)

I agree with your friend. Humor is a really good thing to include especially when you are poking fun at universal held feelings or beliefs.

haha...I love it! I especially like how some of the tubes are more used than others, showing that the person who owns them has been having more trouble with those particular problems. Very funny :))

wonderful work Andrea :)
and you are right: when the works is fresh, one loves it...later not too much anymore and when it becomes quiet old, one likes it again :))
good luck with your exhibition !!

I love this. I need some Procrastanoids. But I am not convinced the product works really, given the directions.

I can tell you I'm really in need of some procrastinoids, too!

Cheers, my dears.
