The drawing from the most recent FaceTime chat with John Reddington, @davidlinneweh and @thehabitatshoppe —it’s always nice to talk with you three. The conversations go where they go and I always leave having laughed and with something new to look forward to...22 X 30” graphite on Stonehenge. #drawing #graphitedrawing #handmade #needlenose #pliers #greatgrandpa #woodshop #studio #handtools #studio #collector #artcollector #mbencohanstudio #stilllife #stilllifeisthrilllife

@rejectedjokes @tombini This arrived just in time for me to start the online studio courses on Monday. Now students will know when I’m serious, and when I’m LOOSE and cool and ready for a make-em-up. Perfect for any of our Zoom-like virtual interactions. #middleditchandschwartz #hat #hatsofinstagram #onlineteaching #makeemups #serious

I wear this hat a lot. I listen to Damien Jurado a lot. Sometimes I paint this hat. Sometimes I paint in this hat. If you want to, listen to his music. #music #damienjurado #maraqopa #ghostofdavid #hat #hats #nowthatiminyourshadow #good #sadsongs #caught #in #the #trees #visionsofusontheland #etc

Another drawing in progress. Yet again made while talking to @john.paul.reddington @thehabitatshoppe and @davidlinneweh This might become a thing. It was a gift from my other lovely friend @jodibirdwell who knows what’s what about objects. Needs a little love, but it’s close. . .22 X 30” graphite on Stonehenge.

Drawing in progress. Made while talking to @john.paul.reddington @thehabitatshoppe @davidlinneweh  I was living with it and wound up enjoying it. I’m presuming it’s a #hawk feather. Not sure where it goes from here but here we are. . .

Sold these a little while ago to @kitkatamaran and wound up reflecting on them as a body of work in the process. The horizon sets the future before us visually, experientially, and conceptually. We move toward it knowing it is forever in front of us, urging us to move forward and stay focused. It can be a sign of uncertainty in unfamiliar territory—territory that becomes more welcoming as we progress. It can also be a signal that we’re edging closer to the well-worn paths of home. The horizon is a symbol of hope.
