another memorial-this time for all the dear, dead ponies.
My latest loss coincided with Halloween and Dia de los Muertes and that has made it oddly easier to bear. I had a ready outlet for art therapy.
I began by memorializing Tula, and then, needing even more therapy, I moved on to Georgie and Chihiro, and Queen of Heaven.
The blazing hot palette set me free.
Finally I painted this regal, reclining cat.
May they all find a home in the Happy Hunting Ground
for practice, for fun, for history and remembrance, to be in the moment–all good reasons.
Add one more.
To be part of a pop-up, temporary community of kindred spirits during a very dark, very chilly month.
I may not be present and accounted for on every day this month. but I will try to do SkaDaMo 2014 with as much verve as possible.
My first weekend of November was spent in Florence, MA with dear RISD friends: Barb and Maureen. We spent happy hours in Maureen’s kitchen, which sports an impressive pot and pan collection.
Barb enjoys her coffee black.
Maureen grows her own thyme.
I look forward to the rest of this month.
I am walking the trail, noticing the birds, the cactus with the raspberry bloom, the towering agave, the light, the scents, the dust.
I am trying to dream myself into the canyon from top to bottom to make my viewer feel like they are there too.
The sketch is pencil, the color is slopped on in Photoshop.
When I am struggling with a book dummy I tend to draw a lot, and care very little about each drawing. By throwing down a lot I may get one good bit.
The gist of this page is my attempt to simplify the face of a young model, drawn carefully at bottom. When I carve her face in linoleum it will need just a few marks to indicate eyes, nose, and mouth and I am trying to pare her down to the minimum needed.
