Goodbye Summer

After several days of late nights trying to catch up on work, family duty called: Casco, Maine, as I lay in a field of grass above a beautiful lake in Maine, out of my fatigue I sketched this happy and rather haunted man.
Even in the midst of Nature's beauty this summer, I frequently found myself juggling assignments and re-negotiating deadlines. This state of affairs was anticipated (right!) and continues unabated. Life is blurred as September makes her renewing presence felt.

I try to make resolutions to paint more, be a better illustrator, be a better businessman, cultivate the good habits while discouraging the bad ones. There are a ton of home improvement projects that were started in the optimistic light and heat of August and now languish in the rapidly creeping shadows of September. Can winter be far now? Will I get all the leaf piles gathered before the snow hits?

But today: It's a day for focused work and unbidden and ponderous musings. Life is on the march who knows where? How was your summer?
