In progress

I am working on a third piece from the package series. This one is about breaking free of the things that weigh you down and trap you. Washing away old habits!


I have more work on the water and rocks to do plus the lock and chain   This is done in oil sticks, oil pastel and colored pencil  on 30X30 canvas




Working with drawing students on the rendering of fabric is a standard lesson for my basic drawing students. I created this drawing in my sketchbook, working under the document camera with my students earlier this semester. this drawing has surprisingly brought inspiration to me for my next series of work.

I would like to create a body of large drawings in charcoal relating the idea that we have segments of our lives compartmentalized within us. I like to think of them as packages within us that are apart of who we are or have become and we carry with us throughout our lives.
