Go Way Inside

I started this current series with the idea of playing with the interaction of paint, mark-making, and pastels to see if a more specific idea for exploration might arise.

What calls out to me again and again when I look at the art of others are the paintings that feel the most free, the most uninhibited, the most childlike.

I want to go way inside to that deep place of spontaneous creativity within me.

I carry that awareness into today's studio time, continuing with pmmp-2.

Work in progress:

pmmp-2 with India ink linework, work in progress

pmmp-2 with pencil and pen lines, circles, scribbles, and tracings,
work in progress

  3. I can really feel the movement here. Love your lines!!! How big is this piece? The use of the square motif holds it all together plus the subtle textures!

    1. Fun that you can feel movement, fun that you love the lines. They feel different from what I was expecting, and it's taking awhile to shake the expected from my mind's eye. 9x12". Appreciate your feedback re the holds-it-together factors of square motifs and subtle textures.
