Don’t you love calendars and journals ? It is a good way to look back at notes and drawings and see them in a new light.
Here is an entry from January in my calendar/sketchbook for 2020, it looks like a premonition of what was to come. So much uncertainty in the world now, I am finding purpose in art making.
I participated in the portfolio review at the ICA (Institute of Contemporary Art) in San Jose, before Covid. I came away with . . . create your own opportunity; be comfortable with being out of balance; and be okay with the work and try not to make it so precious. The precious part is hard. I like the back sides of the recent thread drawings I made, as they seem loose.
This thread drawing is from a photo of Kwesi Young in Content Magazine. Capturing a face is a challenge, but I am up for it. It may take two maybe three attempts to make something I like. I use heavy cotton water color paper and add color with water color and/or Biohue Inks. Black thread details are from my Featherweight sewing machine.
