These paintings were inspired by my favorite artist Peter Max.
My guy built a guitar table for me to paint, nearly 3 years ago.
I have been trying to finish it up, the past 4 months. I'm still not done, but I'm getting close.
|Instead of throwing the paint left on my palette away, I grab whatever cheap paper is around and paint on it.|
|That's why I have so many background papers.|
The rest of these pages are some assignments from the Ink Blots class
I took in May.
|The assignment here was to cut shapes out of the page.|
It says: It takes courage to be a star in a sea of squares.
|More observations, while journaling on location, at the concert festival.|
|Assignment #18 was to draw patterns we liked.|
|More patterns I like.|
|Still on location art drawing.|
|This assignment was to draw an imaginary friend creature. |
It says: She can change her colors by adapting to her surroundings, small enough to fly off on her own or be perched on my shoulder. She's delicate, but indestructible.
|More on location page.|
It says: Until that day she had never drawn a drum kit, instead she drew guitars. Kind of odd, since she once lived in a place with a drum kit, in the living room or garage.
|This assignment was called journal invasion. Another person had to draw or write in your journal. I passed it to my guy who used gripped 3-4 markers in his hands, and drew with them all at the same time.|
|This was part of a fill in the blank assignment to help reveal art styles and preferences.|
