I can't believe that so much time has passed since I last posted a blog entry!
Time just flies by, doesn't it?
I've been working in my studio - as usual I am working on several pieces at once (wouldn't want to get bored, now would we?).
Here's a couple of peeks - no big secrets just pieces that will go into books, shows and private collections.
And I can't show you until I show the people writing the books, curating the shows and hanging the art on their walls (wouldn't be fair, would it?).
|I am drawn to certain shapes and draw them often.|
|This is waiting for another layer of translucent color |
and maybe more plaster or molding paste.
|I love to add found items to my artwork.|
This is a piece of broken Indian pottery that I found
while on a kayaking trip. I love the decorative
lines on it.
|Another piece of pottery - of history actually.|
It's a piece of history full of grace and beauty in my eyes.
|I love the texture and shapes that you can get|
when you sand down through layers.
I vowed to myself a few months ago that I would work with more color.
I usually work with a neutral palette but am really drawn to bold, colorful works of art. So I am trying to add more color to my own work.
Plus it should be easier to photograph.
Even though a couple of the pieces are not bold in color, they are more colorful than what I usually use.
And I am loving it.
What about your color palette? Do you have your "go to" colors?
Do you work with one palette yet are drawn to another?
And if so, I wonder why?
