Hello.

Here is fresh, little work to express a love of diversity, and the love of beauty – innate and soulish and envisioned and created and wholly, divinely human. Yes, My Bee, You Should Wear Pink, 5 1/2″ x 7″, 2017,  watercolor, ink and pastel. It IS available here.

This drawing in progress, in my Elementals series. My last drawing I created like this was for the inside of a limited edition gatefold album for Pausal on the Infraction label. You can visit this album and see pics of the artwork at bandcamp. In this work, I’m creating a composite: I draw automatistic shapes and figures separately, then I arrange and redraw them into a menagerie. It is so, so much fun to do. My plan for this work is inclusion in an upcoming drawing and painting exhibition.

Happy and wonderful fall days to you!

 

I completed this painting last week, and the title seemed obvious to me. Two figures connect  and travel earthy caverns. Here is The Passage, 2017, 7 1/8″ x 10 1/4″, watercolor, ink and pastel. It is available here

It really is all in the details. I have a lot of fun panning out and zooming in as I work. I always feel there are many little paintings within the one.

Here are some other drawn works finished this month.

Much of my drawing has always investigated human connection with nature. Several years ago, I read Biophilia by Edward O. Wilson. Written in 1984, this book was ahead of its time with its environmental revelations. The close-up, introspective examination of flora and fauna worlds had a lasting impression on me. He expressed our inherent need to be in a healthy, symbiotic relationship with our planet’s ecosystems of which we are a part. We are a part of this earth’s whole. I am investigating that connection even more in my new series, Elementals. The drawings are less structured, even less representationally figurative than my other work. In 2013, I began to draw these during a limited edition album art project for Pausal’s Along the Mantic Spring (below)… and I realized this the other day in a “haven’t I seen these before?” moment.

They are a combination of my emotional, innate responses and spontaneous expressions of nature.

Yesterday, I pulled out the staples adhering the painting, Calamus,to its board, and untaped the border to show the reveal (clean edges). On the back, I wrote my title, signature and date painted. Lastly, I covered it with protective glassine till it is ready to take to the framers. I savor all the small, careful steps that go into the process of making, learning and caring for art.
