My sister would have been 64 today. She always said when she retired she would be my agent. I wonder what she would think of the large pile of paintings I’ve done since she died. (Jane died in 2013. Kerfe suggested doing a blog as a way for us to share art with each other in 2014 so my sister never saw it).
This is another blot, then cut in half. These are an enjoyable way to knock off an abstract.
This one reminds me quite a bit of davisbrotherlylove.wordpress.com. It was just two shapes connecting with each other.
I’ve been doing more painting this week starting with the blot paintings. This one was a free association type of thing.
I was fooling around with a sketch and tried blotting it–closed the book on the page and pressed it down with a brick.
One of my favorites, these audacious birds jump out of the way just as the car is coming. One flew right over my head the other day.
I admit I had Draw a Bird day in mind. I just didn’t get around to it. I intend to draw a crow (one flew very close over my head yesterday). The featured image is a blot painting. I cut it out of the sketchbook and mounted it with an Easter egg colored background.
Off to draw a crow now.
I often have little words of poetry coming into my head but I forget to write stuff down. The circles are blotted between two pages.
I did this blot painting the day before Kerfe posted her incredible “Rain” piece and poem. I actually don’t know if hers is a blot or some other technique but I thought it was funny that these look somewhat similar.
This was the first version just white on black. I had to make the bricks red and then went on from there. A successful though useless digital drawing. Happy Friday.
