This blog is my portfolio of artwork, a journal about my process of making art...and the things that I have no words for...

A new drawing... a little one

A small drawing, I'm sticking with the harder leads, the softest being an HB, but mostly worked with 2H and 4H, I'm going back to the earlier work... I do that now and then, there's comfort there working with pencil. I just make the random marks and then make more random marks, and follow the flow... very relaxing.

Getting back into it...work in progress

Work in progress #1, acrylic, monotype, and sumi paper on Stonehenge paper, 8 x 8 inches, I liked this one better before I added the marks...sometimes I should just leave well enough alone! I fear it will wind up going down the 'f-it' road and turn into something else (which at times turned into a good thing)...but maybe not...there's some bits that I like, some I don't like...I'll need to spend time looking at it to see what I'll come up with next...it needs some time...

Work in progress #2, acrylic, monotype, and sumi paper on canvas, 30 x 12 inches, I'm in love with this one, I keep seeing more in it, but I don't want to muddy it up too much...(I liked the color combination so much, I had to make another one...)

Keeping busy, yet laying low, my back has been giving me a ration of grief for about a week, so I have been lying on my bum with pillows and the heating pad most of the weekend and just spent about an hour splashing some colors...now I can feel like I did a little bit of something on the work that have been sitting around gathering dust!

Sometimes the monotype plates are just as pretty...






My Fred told me that I should frame some of them...but I had already reused them for other things by then...or had managed to get something on them...

It seemed I did a lot this weekend, but feel like I did nothing of consequence...new canvases arrived in boxes, and I started the foundations for future things...fiddled with some works on paper, but nothing to tell about yet...two of them had some of their layers scrubbed off...hmmmmmmm...we'll see what happens another day...
