The Dream, Part 2

The dream image is reoccurring, [link here], not every night but most, and I am still working with it, trying to untangle it or its meaning. Trying to sense what it means for me, or how it wants to inform me. When I did the first few drawings I used a pad of lined paper made of Terra Stone. Loved the idea of stone paper but it has a cool, smooth texture and is more like Mylar than paper. That being said it loves ink, actually it seems to love any thing put on it, so I found some larger sheets and set to. Doing some research on line/lines I found a sweet fact, that in geometry, lines are a primitive concept. For some reason that pleases me.

  1. Is it similar to TerraSkin paper?

    For the dream, it seems to be going somewhere. À suivre...

    1. I think it's the same thing Maya, have you tried it?

    2. Yes a little. I like its weight. It is more porous that Yupo, so colours tend to be more subdued,but they can still be intense. Une force tranquille...

    3. Thanks for telling me Maya that it's more porous than Yupo, I was having a hard time with that yesterday in the studio and as I am almost out I'll try Yupo next.

  6. These are stunning - especially the top one - wonderful movement and an enticement to enter - though I know not where ...

  8. I love that you said, "Lines are a primitive concept." It's the very fact as to why lines are so important.

    1. Thanks for putting that together for me Liz, it's perfect. I just knew there was something right about the phrase.

  9. How wonderfully creative Liz! I love the mix of defined, parallel and tangled lines, order and chaos... Very complex, like the mind, turbulent... Love it!
