I recently found a few loose pages from an old sketchbook. They are old sketches I did for a commission years ago that included several large scale Egyptian inspired pieces. I love Egyptian art, and I was going through my "Egyptian period" at the time, so this project was right up my alley!
I found this old drawing in my studio recently. I'm not sure what it was for (possibly a newspaper). But it's a reminder of all the different directions my work has taken me!
In the midst of a 2+ week studio reorganization, brought on by an inconvenience (read about that here), I found a few conceptual drawings done years ago for paintings I wanted to do. This is not abnormal, and does not mean the ideas were abandoned. Just tabled until the opportunity to jump in head first arises. It's been a practice of mine for years to sketch ideas while they are fresh in mind, even if it could be years before I get to them. No matter. I've trapped them on paper, napkin, scrap, whatever before they escaped. So I have catalogs of unfinished work at the ready. This sketch is one of those. Inspired by my love of libraries and knowledge. But until i can give it the attention it deserves, I won't touch it. I will likely clip it or pin it up somewhere in my work space, in my face until I can't stand the wait anymore. ~
Found some old soft pastel sketches. I can't remember what they were for, but I like the energy and color!
An old sketch found in the dog-eared little flip pad I usually keep in my purse. It's there for the sake of purging ideas as they hit so I can find them later, not for intensive studies. View a finished example of where this idea was going HERE.
A couple of quick composition sketches done a few months back to help me get some direction for a painting. A few months of short painting sessions later (between other projects), and it's complete. View (and buy!) the finished piece HERE.
Faded drawings from an old sketchbook. I save all my sketchbooks. This one was missing, but recently recovered.
