Fashion of the pattern

I'd imagine these shapes floating out of a fashion designer's head at all times.

1960's style Op art

Some assembly required...

This how I've worked for years now. I pencil & ink my work in various pieces usually on to three to four pages of paper. Then I scan them all into the computer and do the layout in Photoshop. I suppose my background in Ad design now lends to my control freak nature (the only thing in my life were I have this "OCD" problem) where I can completely manipulate the drawings. I'll do some abstract water colors to round out the eventual background of the image. The Soldier Goose and the Maple Seeds will all make sense in a couple of days. Nah... it will still be confusing I suppose...

Relearning watercolors

I did some watercolors with my Aunt on Saturday. We essentially just played all afternoon. She has a great teaching style, no pressure. She taught me to lay the colors down loose - and let them dance together, it was very relaxing.

One year of throwing things up... to see if they stick.

So I’ve been posting on this blog for a year now. I cannot believe how lucky I am to live in a time period where I can display my art for free to the public. Also thanks to all of you for your inspirational comments over the last year, it really keeps me going.
