2014: Drawing

Drawing is a practice I continue to develop. It’s a learning process that helps me understand line, color, shape, texture, and composition. Each new drawing is an invention with its own problems to be solved, sometimes with success and other times not so much. As each new drawing develops, it informs the next drawing or newly discovered elements may be incorporated into future compositions. This on going learning process is limitless and always expanding. The more I draw, the more I notice the world around me with it’s multitudes of shapes, colors, and textures that exist in endless combinations.

With these works I think about darkness or night time and what is hidden in the depths of our thoughts, the natural environment, and in our physical bodies. I also think about the passage of time with the creation of my drawings. Since our lives are limited here on earth, my drawings are a record of my hours that may or may not stand the test of time.

I’ve included a selection of this series. I’ve created 20 new drawings along these lines so far and the plan is to expand this series on a weekly basis.
