Endless Possibilities

I may say I am wanting to create work that is spare but I watch what happens in the studio and I have to laugh. Picnic Table is where I ended up yesterday afternoon after tossing all the mornings work into the garbage.

Looking at the image on the computer I saw more possibilities. By layering the image the table had become a bridge.

That suggested more possibilities. And so it became Girders.  An endless playtime.

  1. Ha! I hear you. I am always trying to be spare but it rarely works for me.

    Spare or not, this is an interesting series with seemingly endless possibilities.

  3. Hmmm love the first one - but then again, I'm one of the less is more gang! They are all interesting and individual - this charcoal work is just lovely.

    1. Thanks Fiona, I think of myself as a less is more sort of person but the my twin sister of excess takes over. We are trying to learn how to play well together.
