I think one of the reasons I love art so much is because I can communicate without words. Writing these blog posts intimidates me. But I’m going to do it anyway. I do have things to say about art.
When I’m not drawing and painting, I teach art at an elementary school. I’ve started walking to work, and the weather today was beautiful. On my way to work I stared at the moon behind the clouds. It was white, just like the clouds, and the sky was blue. It was beautiful! My sister, Melody Owens, loves the moon, and I think her affinity for it has rubbed off on me. So, today I decided to try combining the moon with a woman. I’ve been experimenting with combining nature and people for a while now; I find it fascinating. I sketched this one a few days ago.
I did this one today. Something about it reminds me of a swimming cap, which is not necessarily what I was going for… but I don’t usually know what I’m going for when I start. That’s why I have to experiment. I have to let my ideas incubate and develop. I’ll keep working on this one.
