the oxymoron...that's me
Two thoughts tonight:
1- My focus the last few days has been on designing rather than drawing. Perhaps the two should go hand in hand, but for me the processes are different. When I am drawing I tend to be rather analytical. I concentrate on what I am seeing; I focus on making a connection between my eye and my hand. When I am designing, I draw from my subconscious. I doodle. I find shapes I like and repeat them. I isolate images around me and abstract them. My approach is strangely different.
2- Amazing beauty can be found in such small details; objects often considered trivial, but ultimately quite meaningful. Tonight I became entranced by a stack of paper cups of all things. The patterns and lines they formed swallowed me up. I love that.
