I discovered these three drawings while organizing in my studio this week.
I've been working on some very active drawings this summer. These four red squares are crying out for names. I haven't discovered them yet. I thought if I put them at my blog I could look at them more and think about names. I also told folks that I would post the drawings when they were finished. So here we go.
I don't believe it's real. I have four days in my studio when I don't have to think about anything but making art. Today I went into the studio for the first day of my of my art retreat.
I have been working on these drawings for ages. They are 6 x 6 how much trouble could they be? Well, first they started out as pencil drawings. I laid down a grid and began working with a grid of directional lines, In some places you can see the intricate herringbone marks peeking through. The work hung on the wall for weeks. I couldn't see where it was going. I took it down and put it away.
Four new works in progress. The first drawings in the new studio. Very close to finished. I needed to step away for a bit. Excited to be productive in the new space.
These are drawings on black paper. They started with a grid and a layer of colored pencil first. Many soft pastel marks. No erasing as usual - just obliteration. Not really sure where the red came from. I think the paper was really calling for the energy.
