In My Printing Apron

What is Cluttering my Drawing Table…..

Well, I got into a drawing frenzy and started drawing 8×8 images of women in hats.

The deal is that I am doing an art exhibit at the Gallery at Round Top in Round Top, TX. with the exquisite painter, John Pinkerton. I love this man’s work. Here is a link to his website…  ….Our show is going to be called He Said/She Said… So in some emails with John, we discussed what we were going to “say”… We had no idea. LOL. We went our separate ways to see what we were inclined to do.

He came back with 8 or so small paintings of nude (or more appropriately, shirtless) men in hats. Since I have been wanting to do women in hats for quite some time, I felt like now would be a good time to “answer” him back with etchings of  prudish women in hats (with clothing)

So I have rough sketched about 10 women and now I need to figure out how I want to finish them with chine colle’ and the etching process. They won’t always be hanging with John’s happy, shirtless men so these women need to be able to stand alone, as well. Now, I am in the process of  treating each one individually and trying to decide if more detail needs to go into their clothing or into the background.

This may seem like a chaotic way to work and it is… but it is the way these are coming about …

basically, I am a chaotic mess anyway….

You can see that by what is cluttering up my drawing table.

    My hat is off to you, looks like a fun project, and from what I can see of your drawings, they are tops!

    I just love these peeks into your process. in the first place, anyone who who draw, paint, create graphics, etc. just amazes me. Beyond that, your just slightly quirky version of daily realities makes me smile, every time. You’re sort of a Molly Ivins of printmaking. 😉

      the Molly Ivins of printmaking?… oh, dear… you are making me blush now.. One of my all time favorites, for sure. I miss reading her level headed way of thinking. She had a way of calming me down in the midst of turmoil …. sigh…. I don’t think I have that kind of wisdom but I thank you for thinking so.
