A combination of thoughts and images showing my journey forward on the triptych called "Birds" This image illustrates what the final piece will look like when I am finished. It is a digital collage put together with about 10 layers of images and 4 photos in photoshop. It is my sketch and helps guide me compositionally.
My process of creating is not bound by any one subject or approach. It is an honest connection within myself, the world around us and the medium I have chosen. I particularly enjoy the linear and figurative elements of foliage. Branches and pedals twist on themselves and reach through the composition.
I have spent 20+ hours on a piece of art that frankly, needs to burn. What happened? This drawing is not in anyway what I intended it to be. It fails in so many ways. One: It is drawn sloppily. Two: It is Tacky. Three: It has a labored, overworked feel when you see it upon close inspection. Four: It poses to be more than it is, trying too hard to fit in.
