doin’ some drawing….

conte crayon , 30x22

This is one of the first of a series of tangled vegetation.

I hadn’t realize how I missed drawing- I was doing a lot of drawing when I taught it for six years exclusively. But then, after leaving, had such a pent up demand to get my fingers into some paint that I left it behind somewhat.  The good thing is- due to materials grants, etc… I have a great stock pile of drawing  and printmaking paper saved up and waiting to be taken out of the drawer.  I may not show my face too much this winter, if things go well.

Conte crayon is a drawing tool I enjoy using. It is so responsive to every move, from bold and dark to delicate and heart-breakingly beautiful- and I’ve always loved using it.

I've been a painter for about 30 years. I also draw and make monotypes, linocuts and other prints. I like tangled stuff.
