It has been an interesting few days in my “studio”. I posted this drawing yesterday, and I am not really sure what happened, but I didn’t get a chance to blog about it. It is available for sale at my shop here:
This was another study involving painting embroidery, which was very tedious and time consuming. Afterwards, I sat down with my daughter and her crayons and did these little gestural sketches in crayon (except the one below), which was quite refreshing. These are not items I have put on my shop and are done on cheap drawing paper, but I thought I’d share them with you anyways.
So, I had an interesting hypothesis about my artistic behavior, one of which I am trying to battle with. I tend to vacillate between two polarities: extreme detail/monotony/care and whimsy/intuitive/carefree styles of work. When I feel more pressure to make work, my work tends to become more controlled. I am not sure which is best, but I enjoy both. Below is a study I did in an attempt to embrace my more intuitive self.
I would love to know what you think. Which style of work do you most prefer? And which do you think is the most interesting/compelling?
This drawing IS available on my shop and can be purchased here
I hope you all are having a wonderful weekend.
I’d love to write more, but I sorta promised my husband I’d make hime dinner.
