Gap in postings !

Now, why these gaps in my postings ? (like between my latest 2 postings)...As I want to keep my art-blogs about art and nothing else - I can still answer this, because it has to do with art. Not that I haven't worked on art (even not as much as I want to !) - but now and then you just make something that wasn't worth the effort. I mean, spending a lot of hours, not willing to give it up, but in the end have to realize; not for public view ! Still, art-wise, these occasionally disasters can be a learning-step as well as succesfull pieces. Therefor I don't throw out such drawings or paintings. Nevertheless, just a bit unsatisfied with the hours spend..
After that last disapointment I had 20 (!) days not being at my drawingtable. Horrible for my state of mind I tell you ! I then finished the "Black Chevy" you can see in my last post and finally started a new drawing .... hopefully next time, I can post before a month from now !

American Dream - Black Chevy

For a long time I have wanted to do a series with classic american cars. Now I've finished the first: "Black Chevy". It is 15 x 26 cm, colored pencils on matboard. More drawings in the series will follow in time. Quite different from drawing and painting fur (!) but I am facinated by these classic cars, I find that they - visually - overpowers all later car-design !
