Back To The Drawing Board
Today a couple of pretty wonderful things happened! I'm part of this month's online exhibition on Papernstitch, which opened today and runs through most of July. This opportunity gives MissouriBendStudio a new audience and a wider exposure. There are lots of wonderful artists represented in that monthly exhibition and I'm looking forward to exploring many of them! The next great thing was that I was featured in a delightful blog, Gloria Freshly Art and Design. Gloria is a wonderful artist, very insightful and sensitive and she wrote a really nice feature on my work. Quite an honor for me!
I spent some time in the studio and have gone back to the drawing board, to use a well-worn phrase. I felt a bit adrift and decided to go back to my core, to find my inner landscape of mark-making again so that I could get back on solid footing. Very spontaneous, intuitive, whimsical, layered meditation drawings...it's what I always come back to for reassurance. Tomorrow, I'll tell you about the history of those drawings and why they are always such delight and revelation.
