Lately I’ve been having fun drawing digitally. If you know anything about famous hot dogs you will get it. She was fun and I think I’ll do more art nouveau style sketches. enjoy. Here she is in my online store
I don’t know why, but I gravitate to this watercolor. I love to see it super big but I think it looks good small also, like a little jewel. There is something about it that is mysterious. I give up on why I’m attracted to it. Maybe it’s whimsical and I think that says it all.
I am offering it in my Society 6 shop.
Life is lately about trying to keep your sanity in a crazy world that’s going crazier by the minute. For me, painting watercolors is about keeping my skills together while the world tries to tear us apart in a negative atmosphere. Am I nuts? Nah. I’m pretty normal considering the curveballs I’ve dodged. So I’m taking pieces apart and put them back together hoping to stay on track. Sometimes this is sort of a thereapy. OMG I use a camera, scanner, paints and brushes, glues and tape and anything I fancy to piece together. It’s about ideas, expressions, words. Old school stuff. Well, I guess I’m old and that’s all there is to it. I still have fun with my art and there’s nothing old about that. This piece measures 9″x12″ without frame.
I am getting back to blogging after another health issue. I’m getting tired of this happening to me so I’m not going to write about it, I’m just going to change the subject. I signed on to Instagram and am looking to meet new people and other artists I have things in common with. I’m not crazy about posting a lot on social media but in the art world, it is expected. Because of Covid and lockdown here as in many places all over the world, the restaurant and food business and food workers have been severely hit.
Being able to go to a little local cafe for a spot of breakfast is no longer a thing to take for granted. A few days ago I visited one such local cafe to find the people easy and nice as usual and the food wonderful too. Somehow they bring a little joy back in our lives. So I’ve decided to do a series drawn completely on my tablet. I’d like to pay homage to our stoic restaurant workers. This is a little different for me as I almost start all my art with a watercolor of some sort of pen and ink. I am challenging myself. Let me know if you like this or not. Here’s the link to view the artwork on my products.
Rice paper drawing through a glass darkly.
I love drawing and painting thin semi opaque rice paper. It is fragile and delicate. It breathes. Comments and some conversations welcomed.
