SETTING GOALS Part 2.


This year I produced more drawings than I had intended. I was trying to produce less work that took me more time, was more detailed and sensitive. Well, I am pleased to report that my work became more sensitive and detailed, not that detail really matters, it’s just that it suited the subjects I drew.

As the year progressed the average size of my drawings increased. I did however, produce a series of smaller works. My drawings are thematically based and I usually produce anywhere from 2 – 10 works, often one after the other. I have always liked to work in themes as it gives me the chance to explore an idea more fully than would be the case with a single drawing.

My themes this year were: Rocks, Shells, Bread, An Enamel Mug, Tumbling Water, Logs, Natural and Man-Made Graffiti,  Religious Symbolism, Light and Abstracts based on Nature. I have also commenced a series looking at known objects in a completely different way.

Some of my themes have been with me for a number of years. The Enamel Mug is new, and may appear again next year.

Today’s images are examples from some of my Rock studies.

Tomorrow: My goals for next year.

    Your work is always beautiful as well as interesting to ponder. So much more than the sum of the parts. Your individual colour palette ties them together in a unique way.
    I stopped making new year plans and resolutions. I’m always trying new things and setting myself mini-goals and the main one for me recently has been keeping a sketch journal. That is taking me in new directions. Do you find that? Art is like an ever branching road!

      Thank you Gillian for your kind words. I like your approach to the New year. Art certainly does take you on many journeys. I think the more flexible you are, the better your work becomes. A Happy New Year to you!
