back ... next .
The image that these derive from was a wonderfully
economical charcoal drawing one of my elementary students did...
laying the stick flat he swiped once, w/just the right twist &
there it was. The next nine pages have in common
the cup as subject. The appeal of this image is partially my coffee
addiction, it is a comfort to hold a warm cup, and it provides an opportunity
to step back & consider one's next choice. I put backing strips to hold the work off the wall, creating that
shadow and "lift", that floating effect.
