Figure Drawing July 8th, 2019

Like all things, some days we feel like we do them well and other days not so much. I don’t feel like this was one of my better days at Figure Drawing.

I did get to see a friend that I haven’t seen in a long time. That was really nice.

I did get inadvertently insulted by one of the other participants…. it’s not the first time. I kind of have decided that he is prone to putting his foot in his mouth. I don’t think he is malicious. At least I would like to think that he is not.

At least he was insulting my drawings to the model and it wasn’t someone insulting my tattooing to a client. It can always be worse.

Anyhow, always glad that I went.


Some day when I grow up I may have a thicker skin and won’t be bothered when people make snide remarks. My mom always told me to ignore them. So far I haven’t figured out how to do that.

100 people can say something nice and 1 person says something snotty and my brain chooses to replay that over and over again. I feel like I am constantly battling with part of my self in order to be functional.

Some days it gets to be really exhausting.

Timelapse if you are interested.

  1. I have a friend who does bronze statues. She is meticulous with details. She entered a piece in a juried show and won a big $$ prize. As we were looking at her statue (of a nude woman holding a towel), a woman approached and commented to her friend “that is a horrible statue – it is all out of proportion. Who has thighs that big?!” I had to hold her back since the model for the statue was her sister and so it was a criticism of the work and her sister. Once the awards were presented she felt vindicated… Everyone has an opinion but that doesn’t change the true value of the art! You are a wonderful artist – both the drawing and the tattoos!
