Is posting a sketchy, unpolished piece like going outside without your make up on?
Maybe, but is there anything 'wrong' with either?
While here in cozy corner Utah this week I've done some loose gestural drawings
using Inktense color blocks, not focusing on a finished piece right now,
enjoying the spontaneous mark making and attempting only slightly at making it recognizable...
and did I enjoy it. One is my memory of Stewart Falls, the other of a rolling stream
where i sat looking at the bridge, water running merrily over rocks
and all the different colors of green wishing i had my sketchbook.
I'm thinking that creating in different ways with different mediums
can only feed my painting. What do you think?
Along those veins I made a silver bracelet in two hours.
I selected a stone and wire for the cuff,
designed an organic shape for a platform,
cut a bezel,
soldered them together,
set the stone, textured the platform.
And voila. I made jewelry many years ago
so the process was not totally new to me
but it was fun to revisit.
Happy Paint Party Friday to all participating
and a lovely weekend to you. XO
