365/3 continues

#103 - 108

Yes, I've fallen a bit behind - so sue me!  I had a bit of a creative melt down, but I'm recovering and I'll get back on track.  Here's the last pieces I did as part of Jane Davies' composition class.

A focus on circles - in different scales.

Circles and lines - unity in repetition, but also variety in scale.

I wanted to experiment with one oversized shape - it seemed to need filling so.......more circles.

The point of this lesson was to explore pattern and scale - include a variety of patterns with a variety of scale.....I found this relatively easy and lots of fun.  You can see the evidence of my 100 drawings on Cheap Paper in this series - primarily because it is a series.....I made many (some didn't make it to the post) and kept experimenting and trying to answer "what if" - the artist's perennial question!

Hopefully I'll be back to creating and posting on a regular schedule again.  Stay creative!



I've made a discovery about myself.  While I love creating, making art, taking classes to learn and motivate me, I have a limit.  I took two back to back classes with Jane Davies.  That was my limit. I can keep a 365 project going by missing a day here or there and doubling my projects to catch up.  But I have to say that the creative energy and thought and effort into those lessons just wore me out.

Since the classes ended I've hardly entered my art room and it's been several weeks!  Yikes.  But, I'm feeling restless again.  Ideas are swarming. Jo's work is inspiring me to get back "on the horse".  I want to have painty fingers. I want to add to the paint spatters on my shirts. It's time to pull out paints and glue and paper and see what happens.

I'm being called back to my art room.
