Looking Closely is a graphite drawing that started with a photo reference (my own) and ended with many imagined areas, shapes, and woven vines. This drawing is created on Rives BFK print paper, 22″ x 30″. Looking Closely was shown at the Norton Art Gallery, Shreveport, Louisiana. It will be shown at the National Association of Women Artist’s 129th Annual Members’ Exhibition, October 6 – 18, 2018, South Gallery, New York.
“Escape the Cat” (ink drawing; digital color)
“Pieces of Life” (ink drawing; digital color)
“Two White Horses” (ink drawing on paper; digital color)
“Trees in the Moonlight” (ink pen on paper; 5″ x 7″)
“Through the Void” (watercolor on paper, 5’1/2″ x 5-1/2″)
This little abstract was created in a small sketchbook. I closed the book before the piece was dry, and when I opened it later, it stuck to the other page. The sticking created a few little tears, but I liked the resulting texture.
“Green Horse Gallop” (watercolor on paper, 6″ x 6″)
The paper is Rives BFK, prepared with gesso. When watercolor is applied, texture appears.
This one looks a little like a mono print, and that’s what I like about it.
