Continuing the 15 minute pastel drawings in my garage... What excites me about these is that they are not what I expect. I do not know where these are going. I watch and learn. Click on the images below for a closer view.
#3 began inspired by a bucket full of gardening trowels. Great shapes of handles and edges... But the final pastel is exuberantly something else, (many something elses) so let's call that one private.
#4 and #5 appear below, starting with the pen drawings, then the Sharpie drawings in reaction to the ball-point, and finally the pastel image. Both of these were rotated 180 degrees; #5 was rotated twice (second time midway through the pastel stage).
I don't like these. Actually, I dislike these (except the colors). But they excite me because they are breaking free. We are traveling. If you review the work in my gallery, you see a lot of work that is careful and planned looking (even though many of those works are also surprises and wandered their way to a final destination). These, in contrast, are not careful or planned - at least not in comparison. I can get much more free, and I hope I do.
