I've been working on this drawing for the last little while. Deciding to work in grayscale was originally a sort of compromise. It's so fast (compared to painting) that I can complete the kind of large, textured, detailed images that I crave in a reasonably short amount of time. Motherhood is making me practical. And while pragmatism is not the most romantic source of inspiration, I find I've fallen in love (again) with good ol' graphite. Really, I think it's just dreamy.
I started this blog as a virtual extension of my artist's journals, to catalogue my studio practices, and to share ideas and bits of inspiration. Along the way, little personal, non-art related anecdotes have worked their way into the mix.
