Redbuds 02

Redbuds 02, misty morning in Coppell, TX,  14H x 11W inches oil pastels, graphite, watercolor pencils on paper

This drawing was an experiment with oil pastels and water soluble graphite to see if the two could cooperate in the same drawing. Conclusion: that’s up to the artist! It was about 8 A.M… the sun barely shone through the thick mist this early Spring morning. The surrounding forest was grey, and the brilliant pink blossoms of the Redbud bush pushed through it all, with patches of green grass starting to grow in the field.

March Winds

March Winds, Coppell, Texas, 14H x 11W inches oil pastels on paper, ode to Jackson Pollock via oil pastels.

March Winds, ode to Jackson Pollock via oil pastels. All Paper Places series are 14H x 11W inches oil pastels on paper, framed with 3 inch white double mat and brass title plate, and white wood frame with crackle finish, 26H x 22W inches total size.

“… the painting has a life of its own. My mission is to bring forth this life”.        Jackson Pollock

Styles are an intuitive response to place, emotional memories, subject, media, etc. When March Winds was finished it reminded me of some of Jackson Pollock’s work, which I never really understood until this piece unfolded in a similar manner.
