friends...

Yep, more drawing. I love it! Actually I feel quite compelled to draw. I feel excited about these two girls. printing them out and getting them into my journal. And really jazzed about how this style, my 'style' is coming along.



Style....that word brings up so many questions. my arty girlfriend Anna has always said "Your style finds you". and i'm getting a sense of what she means by that. We have had many looooong conversations about finding 'it'. It being the thing or style that is who I am, the it that I am happy to create, the it i'm comfortable to be recognized by. Up until now i've felt my style has been so diverse and with little focus.....maybe it's because i didn't want to put myself in a box and say i'm a this type of artist.

But i'm feeling focused and i'm loving the new ideas i have. i love the fact that photoshops challenges me to try new things and bring different resources to my palette.

Hi Nic! I am loving your drawings! Thanks for your comment on my blog. I want to find that book. THese things that keep happening seem to want to keep me here for a while.ha! I've been enjoying playing with Portfolio Oil pastels. Have you ever tried them. I love creating with them they are a very natural 'feel' for me. These are my favorite art supply yet! Lisa gave them to me for my birthday and I forgot I had them(moving and all) . It is good to hear you are enjoying your drawings!

I LOVE your style, Nic! I think I'm still looking for my style...sometimes, I feel so lost as to which direction I want to focus my art because there is so much that I like.
