Sketchbook project and the Man on the Moon

As you may know, we recently had a Super Harvest Moon (full moon at the same time as the first day of Autumn). Unfortunately, it was too cloudy to see the full impact. Anyway, I felt a little detached from the Man on the Moon, not being able to see him up there behind the clouds. Poor guy, must be lonely way up there all by himself. I thought, with my sketchbook theme in mind being make mine a double, wouldn't it be nice if he had some companionship. I'm talking 'bout The Lady on the Moon!
So here you go.

Sketchbook and Santos

This is a combo blog! I'm back from San Antonio and had a great time seeing family. I ventured into the garage at my home and found old paintings from many years ago and found it to be inspirational. I think I was better back when!
Anyway, here's the title page for my sketchbook project though the story is unwritten and probably won't be. Also, here is a quick painting I did the other night of a wooden statue of a "Santos" I bought in San Antonio a while back (I was trolling for subject matter).

Sketchbook Project, College and MFA

I just recently received my sketchbook for the Sketchbook Project! Here's the link
You're sent a nice sketchbook and you have till January to fill it using a chosen theme. Mine is "Make mine a  double". Then the sketchbooks tour various cities and finally end up at The Brooklyn Art Library permanently barcoded. Ann Gorbett (wife) and daughter Marissa (daughter) are also participating.

I moved Marissa and Ariana into college this weekend. Ariana is at Northeastern and a stones throw from the MFA. Nice!!
