sometimes it's done when I run over the edge.....

My favorite part of drawing on 3.5″ square tiles…. the edge and feeling that I’ve completed something is always in sight ….at the edges!

Sometimes it just seems to draw itself without a master plan!

first piece together a 4″ black & white collage from magazine pages, place a 1/2″ grid in white, go draw 8″ x 8″ – a very slow task

Studio Fundamentals class at George Mason University: The challenge was to make a collage with a focal point and two other areas of emphasis.  Draw the collage, 8″ square, using an original graphite value scale   After struggling for hours to make a collage from bits of b&w magazine photos, I figured out that if I had used fewer photographs my task would have been a lot easier because I would have had fewer tones of black, ie., cold, warm and sepia, to name a few.  I had a magnificent image of a woman’s torso and huge nipples and in the final composition, I did incorporate this image along with two men looking up and a huge reaching arm in a suit, a personal statement about reaching for intimacy and finding cold, coldness symbolized by the concrete banner.

This is the hangtag from a pencil box for sale at the local craft store. I copied this several times on a tile instead of the usual pencil string to use on a zentangle®. Now, whenever I hold an unusually shaped bit of anything, plastic cardboard my hand wants to trace!
