Paper Boats 33″ x 28″ Mixed Media on Paper, 2009
I am loving my classes. My figure drawing professor gave us an assignment of making little paper boats and drawing them. It was an exercise in subtlety of planes and values, I found it extremely helpful. This is soft pastel, charcoal and conte on luscious, Fabriano paper. I have a paper fetish since taking printmaking…
Also, I suffered the wrath of making fun of Oliver for not knowing what a knock-knock joke was. Our friends made me finish the joke after reading the blog entry. I told them, they stared blankly at me, waiting for the funny part. How embarrassing; there is no funny part, it’s a bad joke!
This is Oliver’s sense of humour: here’s a little tidbit of our conversation the other night, after asking him what “rectilinear” meant.
“What does rectilinear mean?”
“It’s a grid with rectums in it.”
Ha. ha. ha. Wiseass.
