high tension wires – pencil drawing – 2013
That’s the subject for my year long drawing and painting project. The place where I grew up, my memories of the place and the experience. I’ve only made a couple rules: it must be two dimensional work on the aforementioned subject and I must post progress here each and every Wednesday of 2013. If I don’t work on it steadily every Wednesday of 2013 will be pretty humiliating for me. And that’s the idea, to push myself into the habit of drawing and painting regularly.
Today’s drawing is of the high tension wires (power lines), one of the far limits of my small self’s territory. And some things found closer to home – the lilacs, the big pale pink roses and the old gray fence that were just outside my back door.
