Sketchy Stuff

blubbityblubbitybluh. I don’t have much to say today. The sketches I’m posting today are related to this one I posted a while back. For these photos, I placed something white behind the holes, but really, I don’t think white looks best behind them. Unlike my larger paintings where I always place something behind the openings, I sometimes like to leave the holes in these sketches open or empty. If I were to frame them, I’d probably float them on top of a darker matboard. One more after the jump.

    i love these because they’re loose and i can totally see your “line” in them. it’s like how i can recognize yr handwriting, sorta. they’re organic. i sense growth, but also destruction, possibly one brought on by the other.

    You shouldn’t have to say anything. These are beautiful, more work that suggests all sorts of possibilities, not the least is the satellite
    topographical map connection I get.

    i like the swirling circular patterns, and personally i see pearls in oysters

  4. Thanks B and T! I love hearing these kinds of associations. It shifts the way I think about the work and broadens my perspective. also, i’m too tired to say much more so ty for the OK on the mum, Bats.

    I enjoy these. Especially the 2nd one.

  6. Just now vinoed up enough to stop and see. I don’t know what to say.

    Can volcanos be delicate things? The graphite seals the deal on the bottom one for me. I’m torn between water erosion associations and volcanism.

    I wish I owned a volcano. I have too many nails though.
