Fulfilling their purpose, without doubt and any hesitation, the featured elements – the crow and utility lines generate power and calm. I love finding peace in unexpected situations.
Graphite on wood panel and plaster, measures 28″x18″.
Below are the stages the artwork went through:
A generous subject for drawing, I thought- the Typewriter is a graphite drawing on wood panel and plaster. Measures 24″x24″ and 1″ deep.
A new workshop coming up at Ledge Craft Lane:
Winged: Graphite drawing workshop, August 7th 2014
It will be a graphite texture and form study of birds, feather and wings. We will be using water soluble graphite on plaster treated wood panels.
Please see the above link for more info!
I started this drawing a few years ago, I though it was finished just having the subtle woman profile as main element. After seeing it for months in my studio, I thought it really needed something else, so I added the birds. I like it this way, it’s done.
The artwork measures 24″x24″, graphite drawing, white charcoal on plaster and wood panel.
Available in shop
Below are details from the drawing:
I actually think all springs are busy, it’s just the nature of it. I also got to spend lots of time in my studio and new artworks were made! I revisited the good old barn wood and made a few barn wood encaustics also I finally decided to so some artworks on the utility pole subject – it’s been on my mind for quite a while and I used it here and there but not like this time. I never had a sure answer for why I like the theme and the images of utility poles with all the tangled wires. I find them just beautiful.
All the new pieces together with the new barn wood pieces can be viewed and purchased in my gallery shop (also there’s a 10% off on all – code: FINALLYSPRING) – this in case you do not receive my newsletter.
Below is one of the barn wood encaustics:
My latest drawing: The Sparrow and the unraveling moon, a mixed media artwork: graphite (dark wash), paper, ink, plaster on wood panel, measuring 16″x16″ and 1.5″ deep.
It went through many stages – it started with the flowers, wasn’t quite sure where it will go. I worked from bottom up.
Artwork available in my shop.
I found this beautiful piece of barn wood, painted red – I usually end up drawing on wood, but this time it was asking for painting, a light watercolor painting combined with graphite on plaster.
The artwork measures 46″x12″
Big gap in my posts, I was moving, and packing … and unpacking…
Finished this icon I was working on for a while, started with a Byzantine icon and I really wanted to make an icon with graphite, a contemporary Byzantine style icon, i guess.
Measures 14″x14″, graphite dark wash on wood, silver leaf. Available in my shop.
I low light:
Here are three new encaustics I just finished – with road trips in mind, more dynamic times and warmer weather.
Wrapped up everything a bit late – I finished quite a few new pieces, all encaustics and they are listed in my two shops: Ingrid Art Studio and Bright Day.
I also got a chance to actually take pictures and list some of the new recycled watch parts pendants: you can view the line in my Open Journey gallery/store.
The Owls look really awesome right now on my studio wall as a group…will be sad separating them :-)
