This is the “Tilt” drawing started awhile back… taken to the emotion depths of grief. Faber Castell Polychromos on 140 lb. Canson paper, 9 x 12 inches.
It’s done… maybe… I had to walk away from it before dark pencils blackened the entire sky.
Photo is a quick cell phone snap… if you want to see it in person, odds are that I will take it to the SOAP Gallery’s First Friday Art Walk, 5 to 9 PM on Champion Street in downtown Youngstown on July 1, 2016.
Thanks for looking!
That’s a quick cell phone snap… not the best photo… I was heading out the door to take my art up to the YWCA (show opens next week) and remembered that I was supposed to bring 5×7’s to donate for the silent auction. Like oh… do I have any 5×7’s that have not been already matted for framing? No… but I have larger drawings still waiting to be matted, just pick one and slice it up, eh?
The cool thing about this pair of 5×7 drawings, cut from the same piece, is that it does not matter which one goes on the left… the drawing “flows” from one piece to the next from BOTH sides. Since I did not draw it with the intention of slicing it into smaller drawings, that hit me like wow, totally not planned.
I love artsy surprises.
I titled them “Think” and “Think Again” because they go together and I have been doing a lot of that lately… started the year playing mental ping-pong: yes, no, yes, no, yes, no, no, no… and decided to stop thinking about everything… just roll with what comes.
Now, six months later, what am I doing? Thinking again.
Float a Dream, 9 x 12 inches, Polychromos, 2016.
I like it… it is very representational of what is going on in my life right now. If you want to float a dream, you have to get it out of your head so it can catch a breeze in the real world. Sure, it might pop. Oh well, float another. Thanks for looking!
Edit Note: deleted tangent ramblings… better for me, better for this blog.
