Introduction

by Paul Rhoads

Please post everything you do, each sketch, no matter how sketchy or “bad”.

I’d like this to be a sort of backwards version of the academy thing where everything was done in secret, and you got nailed to whatever idea you came up with: let it be fluid and interactive. We should steal (borrow 😇) from each other, give frank opinions – and accept them.

The goal is not to produce masterpieces, it is to get into the problems of “history painting”. So, judge others but don’t judge yourself. Do your best but understand you are climbing a mountain and will never make it if you don’t unload some of the ego weight of self-expectation, embarrassment in failure, etc.

Just do it, suck it up, and have fun.

I hope we can all (l’ll participate) come through this with a painting – and let’s help each other get there.
