In Context: Beyond Likeness

February 21, 2024

I make a lot of notes about the blog posts I want to write.

A couple days ago I drew this cat. One of my notes was sitting there on my desk. 

Together they seem to say succinctly what I wanted to say about “why draw?” and the search for likeness in portraits.

I’ll stop now and go back to sketching. You too.

    Yes. I have a quote I like to this thought: “In the process of trying to understand a problem, the ‘self’ disappears, and a special union between the artist and the subject exists. The magic of creativity resides here…”. Sherrie McGraw

    You drew a cat! I love all the animals you draw, especially the birds. Well maybe the dogs. Or the birds. Then there are the T- Rexes. — I can’t decide – I love them all! Thanks so much.
