The Intruders at the WAAM

Two of my abstract pencil/pastel drawings can be found at the Woodstock Artists Asso. and Museum, in Woodstock NY.  In the small works show is the blog photo depicting my drawing "The Intruders"  which hangs below artist  Elin Menzes' dragonfly painting.  I love her work and bought a monoprint of a bat for Larry at one of the WAAM shows.

I love abstract drawing, as I feel it is the most "authentic" art that comes out of me. Though it isn't a portrayal of a "real" landscape, it is a landscape of my mind, as my teacher reminds us. I am still painting landscapes/trompe l'oeil, but I like exploring non objective/abstract art, learning the vocabulary involved in making it, and seeing what lies within me.   I don't know where it will take me, but that's part of the fun of the journey....just going with the flow...

Off to finish my school work. Though I rarely watch TV, I am going to watch the Grammys while I finish off some work.  I love the music/dancing and oh, checking out the clothes and plastic surgery on the rich and famous.  Me, I'm in my PJ's....makeup and botox free....
