“Horses,” ink on paper.
I have been all over the place lately in terms of the artwork I’m doing. Flowers, faces, animals, collage, sewing… aack!
In the past I’ve preferred to work in a series — such as the Girls or the Animals for example — and build a large body of work around the same thing… I’ve found that working that way helps me feel grounded and not so, well, all over the place.
But for the past few months, I just haven’t been able to help but spin off in all kinds of different directions.
I’m having fun, but I do feel a bit un-grounded and scattered, too.
(I will just try to live with the uncomfortable feeling, though, for a little longer. It must be what I need right now!)
I totally know what you mean. I prefer to work on one series myself, but find you can be fresher and more ‘in the moment’ when you switch it up a bit. I love the horses, your work has so much energy.
I am enjoying all of your scattered work — especially the flowers — looking forward to the online class :0) have a happy week end :0)
I, too, enjoy your scatter work. Regrouping in your brain. Experimenting. It’s also freeing for me to see your new work. Enjoy and have a great weekend!
I can imagina how you feel. But apparantly there’s a need for doing all these things. And they all look vibrant and interesting.
By the way – I received word from my bookstore that your book Drawing Lab has arrived. Hurray!
