Reflection

Closeup of HazelThis is another drawing of Hazel; a dear friend.  This was part of a series based upon the theme of the mirrored image.  The focus shifted from the self to the mirror.  It brings new meaning to subject of reflection as we ponder ourselves and our place in this world.

Triptych Demonstrating a Shift in Palette

This triptych illustrates the importance of serial imagery in telling a story.  Here the palette shifts from warm on the left to cool on the right.  Notice how each palette gives a little of itself to the contrasting one and the center piece incorporates both elements.

The Power of Telling our Stories

IMG_4744    I am showing you a contour of a still life consisting of garlic.  This tool does much of the work for you,  It is revealing of form by demonstrating the light source, laying out your composition, and letting your personality pour out onto the page.  This contour is part of a two drawing series that merely looks at a changing light source.   Here are the gradations that were based on informative contour.  We can begin to say more about our subject material when we examine ways to say something different about it.  Here, we keep the placement of the still life the same and change the light source.gradated garlicIMG_4747

Persephone IIII

I’ve  been reworking the color on some of my drawings   Again this is the sculpture of Persephone over the doorway of McNeal Hall and part of a series depicting her in the different seasons.  Here, the leaves of the vine are drying, changing color, and falling away in the wind.
