Everything Is New…

•September 21, 2010 • 1 Comment

After a very challenging year, Everything is new!  New State, New Home, New Studio!

The story is now full of wonderment and I promise details will soon follow.

(Wow, I have a lot of updating to do!)

Have a gorgeous day!

Art Crush

Came across these gorgeous paintings by Susan Jamison while checking in on my favorite blogs…I tend to lean toward design sites filled with hand made with a vintage edge, interiors, architecture, and illustrative work that’s super rich in narrative.   Once in a while I develop a serious art crush.

Crushing hard on these:

Swedish Interior Nirvana

I like to collect things and arrange them in interesting piles (sometimes JUST piles..) and displayed set-ups.  The result is a house full of a lot of stuff.  

I always imagine that in another time (or house) I would live in a minimalist white space.  Here is some beautiful Swedish Interior eye candy.

figure drawing

 About three weeks ago I started figure drawing in an old Opera House on Sunday mornings.   I Love, Love, Love to go to life drawing sessions and work with a model.

 It’s been a long time since I’ve worked with figures..There was a “couple of years” period where I was drawing from the model 3 times a week.   I had stacks of drawings.  I lost all my figurative works on paper  in a studio flood 3 years a ago (that’s another story).   Now,  drawing again it’s strangely liberating to be working without a whole stack of visual history in the flat files.

and….It’s GREAT to be working with a model again.

Here are a few .

I like to make strong charcoal drawings…but, I wanted to try pencil to see what I could do with the line
