I've been excited about this project for a while now. Commissions are always nice and welcomed, around the holidays it's hard to find time to work on anything else. I'm all caught up for now and starting a New Project, I've been wanting to draw more in silverpoint. The silver will patina with age, turn color and still glisten in the light.
It's an ancient medium and I wanted to draw objects from ancient times. My cousin collects artifacts. arrowheads mostly from Tennessee. The area where my grandparents lived. I've photographed about 20 from his collection but he has thousands. His collection is so impressive.
I sketched out a few to get started, they will be the actual size of the arrowhead. I can't wait to get to the studio tomorrow. It snowed today so I stayed in, I hope it's gone in the morning.
This is an adventure for me, something I've always wanted to do: to be a real Artist! So I rented a studio, lets see how it goes.
