“Running Thru Branches”, 12″x6″, ink
Drawings are on 140 lb watercolor paper and are drawn with archival Indian ink pens.
I draw almost every morning when relaxing with my morning coffee. My drawings are usually finished works in themselves, stimulating my thoughts and ideas but not usually sketches for paintings. They are design challenges – since they are done in ink without prior sketching, the imagery flows rather spontaneously without premeditation. Once the ink line is drawn there is no going back to erase a line that doesn’t flow right. The mark is made and the challenge to create a harmonious piece has begun. Drawings are made over a period of many days or weeks.
