Facing Away, Lavina Blossom, 7×5 in. mixed media
Finally finished–after weeks and weeks of feeling this needed more. The bit of magazine paper (silhouette of a face) was the last touch.
Do you worry about using small cutouts from magazines? I am not concerned, since I don’t sell copies, only a single original, and parts of magazines and newspapers have been used in collage since the beginning of the twentieth century, incorporated into works by many artists. Hannah Höch and Romare Beardsley are two that I admire most, but there are many many others.
Questions: Are you interested in sharing a drawing a week. I noticed today that Judith Bergerson has been doing this with a couple artists friends for 3 years now. The idea, as I understand it, is to draw whatever you like, one drawing each week, just for the love of drawing, and post or otherwise share your piece. I love Judith Bergerson’s drawings (and paintings!) and feel inspired, but I would definitely be more likely to commit to this challenge if I had an art partner to share with. Want to join me? If so, please comment. If you don’t hear from me right away, it will be because I didn’t receive your message (I think my spam guard may work a little too diligently). If you do not get an answer, please find me on face book and message me.
Oh, and if interested in purchasing this piece, you can do so here, through Daily Paintworks.
