Lately I have been heading straight to the studio to work on my Orb and Energy paintings. Occasionally, I took a break and sketched a few culinary herbs. This morning, I felt the need to sketch from my bed while sipping coffee and to throw the die for a color scheme. Being so distracted lately, my dresser has accumulated an odd collection of objects.
Cluttered Dresser (4.25″ x 6.25″)
…. a bottle of lavender lotion to help me sleep at night, a small vial of patchouli oil, eye drops, ear buds, an insect repellent wristband ( works quite well!), a light bulb and a thin tape measure…..
This is where my painting energy has been going lately…..
Crack of Dawn, Orbs No. 9 (21″ x 14″)
And….. not that I need to be involved with another blog! Oh no!…. I’m trying to cut back on my blog time…. But, I can’t resist the invitation from an old and dear friend to put our minds together to create a blog that explores both the working of the brain and the mysteries of the Universe. I have wanted to tap into the world of artists who love science and this is the first step to finding that community! Of course…. I will be posting many of my orb paintings on the new blog. I’ll keep you posted.
Cluttered Dresser: drawn first with ink using a fountain pen, followed by watercolor. Analogous with split complemens color scheme.
Crack of Dawn, Orbs No. 9: Watercolor, layered and layered and layer even more… thrown, splattered, blown, etc.
