It’s been a whirlwind 2 weeks here on the West Coast, and I’ve loved every moment of it. We’re packing up today to leave LA on a midnight flight back to Miami (which I am less than excited about) and I realized how far behind I am on posting about our trip.
All week I’ve been working on three entries to a show up in Michigan. The theme of the show is “Lines.” Lines of text, lines of people, powerlines… etc. Everything is up for consideration.
I’ve known about this show for a few weeks and seeing as most of my work is made up of small, thin lines in succession – was super excited to enter.
I made three 18 x 24 pencil drawings of plant leaves. From left to right – Monstera, Aloe, Royal Palm.
These are a few of my favorite moments within each drawing. I just loved how the slightest variation in pencil pressure made a shadow or a ripple on the surface of the leaf without me really thinking about it. A lot of random volume occurred in these pieces, so the end result was entirely unplanned and a surprise to me as well. Those are my favorite.
Fingers crossed they are received by the jury in a similar fashion. We’ll see
