I recently recovered these two gems from a box of saved drawings. I distinctly remember being incredibly frustrated painting this chickadee because the only brush I had was caked in dried paint. Now, however, I quite like the effect.
This second image was from a high school project called “7 Ways”. We were to choose a subject and represent it in 7 different media, coming up with a final consolidated project. I choose corn and designed a book made from hand-made paper out of corn husks (a smelly job I don’t care to repeat). Each page held a different representation of corn through photography, pen & ink, pastels, pencil, painting, and finally print making. This print is all that remains of the project.
