about the artist

This and That


This week at the drawing class, we reviewed drawing 3-D objects and then focused on drawing the human figure. The head that I have here is the last drawing of the night and I did not have time to “flesh”it out.We started with a sphere with a protuberance for the chin. We learned how to divide up the sphere to get the correct location for eyes, nose and mouth.  I only took a couple of photos because I was busy doing the drawing.

Here us the body in movement that I did. I quite love this. If you look closely, you can see how it was made up from a series of cylinders that were then fleshed out to become this lovely dancer.


Not sure how I will use this newly gained knowledge, but I am enjoying the process. It is the journey, not the destination, right?

Yesterday, I went back to Trinity to help clean and organize the studio with the kiln. Half of the space was taken away for a nursery bathroom. We are not going to have much space to have classes there, but at least we hope to get the kiln up and working and have a space for doing wet work for a few folks. I am going to use the space to create the large pieces of fabric for my solo show.

I have a load of stuff to donate to SCRAP today. We found this antique printing press for which we would like to find a new home.


I found a better photo online:


It is a big heavy thing. If you are in the Portland area and would like to take this off our hands, let me know.
