DFAD 2019: Library of Stories

Art, Art Shows & Events

During the month of February I participated in Delaware Fun-a-Day 2019, a local draw-a-day challenge. This year, my theme was Library of Stories. Each piece was inspired by a book that I have a personal connection with. I used text from the books in each piece. It was part of the group show in early March on display at the Center for the Creative Arts.

The books the pieces were based off of include:

The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger

Wicked by Jeremy McGuire

Ariel by Sylvia Plath

The Witching Hour by Anne Rice

Goodnight Moon by Margaret Wise Brown

Death and Taxes by Dorothy Parker

Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak

Night by Eli Wiesel

The Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling

Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll

Diaries by Anais Nin

The Martian Chronicles by Ray Bradbury

Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov

Poems by Paul Celan

Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark by Alvin Schwartz

Quick Live Drawing Session

Art

It’s getting to be snuggle in your pj’s under a mound of blankets weather here on the east coast. I bundled up in a ridiculous Hello Kitty onesie tonight and drew a quick rendition of myself as Death the Endless.

March Update- Pop-Up Art Show and a New Painting

Art, Art Shows & Events

I’m taking a little break in March from teaching classes so I can focus on creating some more original large-scale work. Of course, that doesn’t mean I’m not busy.

On Sunday, March 25th I’ll be participating in the All Kinds Pop-Up Art Exhibit happening at the Newark Arts Alliance in Newark, Delaware. CLICK HERE to go to the Facebook event.

And a new painting. This was my first experience with both watercolor grounds and gold leaf flakes. For those who are unfamiliar with watercolor grounds, it’s a compound used to treat canvas to make it suitable for watercolor painting. This is great for playing with watercolor without worrying about framing a piece in order to display it.

The Drunk Text of Womanhood

Art

I was lamenting my hormonal woes and how they can lead me to feel out of control of my emotions when the menstrual monster is lurking under the bed. A friend commented “It’s like the drunk text of womanhood.” That phrase was so apt. I knew I had to draw it in some capacity.

Well, here she is. There will probably be an on-canvas version of her at some point.

Sketch Time: Beer Garden Edition

Art, Uncategorized

Every year in late spring Wilmington turns its skating rink into an outdoor beach themed beer garden, complete with sand, boardwalk, and lounge chairs. It’s pretty fun. Last night I made my annual pilgrimage there. Sketching, drinking, and putting your toes in the sand makes for a rather enjoyable night.
