"Uncrushable", second "paper clone"

Image
Ever wondered if, we artists, like writers, have to tackle the notorious "page blanche" syndrome?
The big white gaping blank page hole?
We do.
Sometimes.
These infuriating times, times when everything you know goes blank, do plague our creative muses.

Paper Clone and "Uncrushable" are results of blank moments.
Symbolic pieces. Drawings tentatively touching the third dimension.

Nothing is quite as it seems.
Nothing crushed remains crushed forever.
Strength and beauty always rise to the surface.

Chinese Whispers ... a summer perspective

Image
Summer's ending, schools have started and the studio is where I am heading with a wee skip in my step. (We've been apart for too many moons!!)
Over the last three months, work has had a strange staccato rhythm with interruptions sometimes hitting very loud fortissimos.
The emphasis now is on creating a beautiful flowing melody with strong Vivaldi tones and Beethoven hues.

"Chinese Whispers" is the result of this interesting mix of working rhythms and scribbling hours.

I love this drawing simply because it's all about perspective, emotion and lazy manic summer days.
