I was in an art gallery in Asheville, NC when I took a photo of this quote on a wall. I added a few bells and whistles to it.
Regarding a creative life, my daughter is studying art there in Asheville and I thought I would share some of her artwork. Not that I’m partial or anything . . .
Do you remember Willie, Sebastian’s friend from this post?
This is the beginning of a sketch she made of him from the side. This is very rough compared to the final but I like the looseness of this drawing. It only took her a few minutes. That’s one talent I wish I had.
Here she is in the process. I love this photo of her so focused.
This piece is from an Art History class – a shrine – but I’m not sure what the assignment was specifically.
Now she is using it as inspiration for a print in her printmaking class.
This is a plate she created from a drawing she did for one of her first assignments in printmaking.
And below is a print from that plate. The process still has me a bit baffled. It’s like trying to understand the ins and outs of computers. As long as someone is there to explain it as they go along, I can get my head around it but if I try to tell someone else how it’s done, I’m completely at a loss.
Thankfully, it’s not something I have to know to appreciate the work!
