Yeah I shade with my hands.. so what?!
Once again First Friday is upon me, and it is also my final art critique day. I have graduation in about a week, even though I have to come back for summer classes. I am excited and a little nervous about it all. This critique should be interesting as I have switched from my whimsical colorful paintings, back into the dark unsaturated world of charcoal. It is quite a messy world too. I had to make some changes to my studio space to accommodate my new processes. It feels so good to get back into creating work directly with my hands, though last night I nearly split open a finger because I have been shading with it too much. I have also put one of my charcoal drawings up in a group exhibition in the library (which my friend Rachel and I put together). We also hung a print show this week in the semi-private studios for our First Friday event, we even got our print professor to submit some artwork. I hope tonight has a bigger turn out than our last one (which was still quite the event). However things turn out, I am very much looking forward to getting all these things done, and being able to catch my breath again...
I am a creator, compelled to make things with my hands to add beauty to the world around me.
