Thought!

The more I paint or draw, the more I evolve as an artist.  The more I do, the more I want to do and the more I learn what it is I love as subjects in art.  It is important to do!  Move forward as an artist.

Pencil Portraits


I took three images of one person at different stage in her life and brought them together in a time piece using pencil only. Usually I start with one main piece, deciding where I want to place the pictures and from that one I work the rest of the portraits. As you can see the middle image is central showing this person was once a child and now is a senior.

Ink fun


I use ink here to show what can be done with a little fun and an idea. In this picture, I created what appears to be grain adding a few bugs and a snake in the design. Really this is about a shape. I make a shape from a line, one that is pleasing to my eye and I used the blue ink to finish the picture. No pencil was involved. This is truly a creative drawing because I didn't plan anything. I just took the line and then the ball attached, and built an idea in ink. It was fun and I rather love the piece. see it enlarged in my gallery.

Wood reliefs


First I find an idea to work with. Totum babies was an idea that I got from the famous Native totum poles, only I wanted to do something with people. In this case three sisters. I worked with pine. As I do with a drawing, I draw my image, using the knife to cut over the etchings, and from there I being carving bringing to relief what should stand out. The biggest challenge for me in my woord reliefs is carving too much in an area. Then there's the temperament of the wood. I never thought wood could be like people - gentle, soft or hard and stubbord. When I read a point of difficulty I work with that difficulty to bring out the necessary element of the design. Draw, Etche, Carve in layers digging out the deepest parts and leaving the surface areas for last.

An idea evolved


Usually I take an idea or a subject from which I allow creativity to unfold. If I use a landscape or a person, I will allow some of the creativity to have a hold. First you draw what you want and then you work on building this idea with the tools at hand. It's like chartering a trip at sea in a small boat. You've planned where you want to go and how to get there, but you must go through each part of the trip as in unfolds. If a storm comes you must act accordingly. If a dead wind occurs you must decide what you must to do bring it to life. You don't get to the end of the trip until you've gone through all the chartered parts of the map.
