Y2 Art Resolutions is the second year of an evolving resolution to elevate every day by looking at art and creativity as a life’s philosophy.
In the midst of the arctic blast and waiting on ambiguity to settle, I am seeking solace and escape in the studio. Back to the zen if intuitive drawing. When coloring the original, I thought an abstracted rose was surfacing.
But as I painted, it seemed to disappear. I turned and turned the paper. Finally, a kimono stared back at me. Pattern, rhythm, and an order stepped out from the chaos. Complex but order nonetheless. Her posture speaks to me this morning as much about snow shoveling as it does dancing with a parasol.
And I am not done.
