The abstract drawing class that I was taking is over. Ten weeks. A very interesting and satisfying experience. Got some good input from the instructor and had thoughtful group discussions about each other's work. I had the opportunity to work much larger -- 24 x 36 inches -- than I normally work. And it was great fun to attack those large pieces of paper in search of a personal gesture.  A friend asked last night how working so differently was going to effect my day-do-day work.  It's got to have some impact but I'm not sure there will be an immediate, visually evident change in my work. I think of the moss & lichen drawings as abstract drawings but a much different approach than that advanced by the teacher in class. It's good to get out of your comfort zone every-now-and-then.

Each of the drawings was a response to an in-class assignment -- working with line, gesture, working with positive/negative space and shapes, texture and so on.  Materials included charcoal, water-soluble graphite, pastel, and ink and other drawing materials.

Number four was never completed as I turned it over and used the back for one of the ink drawings.

You are too kind.
Mostly I am like a dog in the forest -- running from tree to tree following my interests, and my interests are in constant flux.

... funny analogy, I feel the same ... as being a bee on a meadow tasting one flower after the other...
