Unfinished Project #2
There are patterns I must follow
Just as I must breathe each breath…
I’ve been working on this Sketchbook Project since the beginning of last summer. It was originally due in January, but they extended the deadline until March. So of course I stopped working on it regularly, and now I’ve lost focus. Which is why I’m not a big fan of extended deadlines…just another excuse to procrastinate. But it IS due in March, so I’ve got to recollect my thoughts and get back to work.
My inspirations for this sketchbook come from Paul Jenkins, Jean-Michel Basquiat, and Paul Simon. The theme I chose is “Parts of the Whole”, so I’m combining these influences on each page. From Basquiat, I took the idea of putting sheet music into a collage. And the music is Paul Simon’s song “Patterns”.
I’ve been thinking of doing embroidery based on the art of Paul Jenkins for some time. His layers of color seem perfect for layers of stitching.
So…back to the drawing table. You can see my completed Sketchbook Projects here:
