Last year in February 2012, my friend Lis Saya gifted me a box of “woodless” colour pencils (more like crayons); she thought that pencils without the wood were fascinatingly unique so she bought herself a set as well. During a concert, we sat together and put our sketchpads to use! I’ve posted a few sketches from my drawing pad; these will be used as “patterns” for my next few paintings this year…
One of my very first charcoals in a long time; this reminds me of seaweeds and bull kelp…sometimes I just doodle and these are the things that come out of me…these kinds of drawings allow me the freedom to just play. They are not structured, purposeful, sophisticated art for example, the button robes and Chilkat weavings. I like the structure and the playfulness of both ways of being and doing.
And hey, MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
