Just a flimsy sheet of paper

Cash Register, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec

It’s raining and all I have is a flimsy sheet of paper to wrinkle and bow. Plus, I lost or had stolen all my pens and pencils from my classroom.

This is what you do when the tools are in short supply and the weather keeps you in.

 

From shape to shape

From shape to shape, the natural and machined, bend my eye. Nothing escapes the attraction of curve, fluid mass and void.

Even though imaginative color is applied by you, the beat of a hand touching paper goes on.

The artist never stops to admire a “perfect sketch”, because none exists.

Restless minds cave to desire.

Trial Balloon

After looking at some of Michael Ehrhardt’s work this week, I became inspired. He is an accomplished and prolific German artist, who works in acrylics.

He is masterful.

My artwork defines itself lately by scribing my thoughts in pen, and wanted to give something new a try. I wanted to share the punctuation of line, with an inappropriate/inconsistent/landscape-like background.

I like and may integrate more into my work. Thank you for the inspiration.

 

Industrial design

artist, Cafe, Restaurant Coffee Grinder

While waiting to eat lunch with my friend Kathy and family; I started sketching. Near, was an industrial coffee grinder that looked cast out of the hardest metals. The shapes were formed, banged and screwed.

Of course I had to start a drawing. However, everyone came and I couldn’t finalize what I saw.

Late today, I started to look at it and decide if it was worth putting more ink on paper.

Glad I did.
