The Line of Thought Behind it All

This last holiday weekend I was able to experience the exhibition at MOMA titled "On Line: Drawing Through the Twentieth Century". Since then, my mind keeps noodling around the visual ideas the exhibit presented (I have to say I'm curious to incorporate the ideas I have seen into the processes of my own creations........ I've been influenced and inspired.....).

And I found myself quite taken by the thoughts expressed by some of the artists. Here are a couple:
"sewing thread to mend gaps and create visual connections between materials" --Anna Maria Maiolino
"Klee said of his drawn line: "It goes out for a walk, so to speak, aimlessly for the sake of the walk.""

Brussels Sprouts? Hedgehog Gourd?

Hmmmm.... Certainly a little of each perhaps is influencing/inspiring the forms in my new painting. This is the companion door to the canvas of my most recent painting, "My Inner Reptile".
I'm really excited to continue the building up of layers.... This morning I just finished laying out the forms. Now the details....
As always, stay tuned  :)

My mind is all a buzz...

with the glorious imagery from the latest movie we watched, "The Secret of Kells". I highly recommend it for the visuals (though the story is quite good) ~ the layers of textures, forms, patterns and colors throughout create an amazing world worth visiting.....

(unfortunately this snippet above just doesn't give justice to it - you must see it for yourself.....)

P.S. I'm so inspired by it all! and thus it is certainly giving "Alice in Wonderland" a run for it's money for my favorite movie category.... I must see it again!
