Now you may be asking what long-form drawing is. It’s a term I sort of borrowed from the world of journalism, wherein long-form writing refers to any article from 1,000 to 20,000 words. I think of some of my drawings as long-form drawings.
My husband and I took a mini vacation to Savannnah, GA last week. On the way home, I convinced him to have have lunch at a Mediterranean fusion sort of place, and as punishment for that, he found some sort of "World of Meats" place in the same complex where he bought a variety of jerkies and a package of sausages of unknown composition.
I recently spent a week as one of five artists in Residence at Remarque New Grounds Print Workshop in Albuquerque NM. It was my first time on a residency, and it was an great experience.
I love to experiment with printmaking. Never having been very good at following the rules for making an edition, I have the most fun when I stray from the norm, as I did with these collaged drypoint prints.
Ulrich was a really sickly child, so his parents sent him to a monastery for study and so he could die on someone else’s watch. There he adopted a whole foods plant based diet, and his health improved so much that he was able in later life to rebuild churches, feed and minister to the poor, and live on very little sleep.
St. Bernard of Montjoux was an Italian monk from the 11th century who apparently didn’t mind the cold. He established hostels in the Italian Alps to aid French and German pilgrims travelling to Rome. And yes, in case you were wondering, those big, hairy dogs are named after him.
I did a residency in February at the Remarque/New Grounds Print Workshop. I had carefully planned to work on a series of large drypoints of scenes from Rust Belt cities. I shipped out completed plates and a lot of paper, and printed like a fiend the whole week. Then I came home and ruminated on them.
I did something a little bit spicy for a Sunday, and designed a deliciously floral outfit in lovely colors for a well rounded woman. I think it’s kind of sassy and fun.
I started to research microstock companies: which ones were the best and how much money could be made. It seemed like an intriguing idea, so I decided to apply to Shutterstock, the largest and most recommended microstock according to all the reviews I had read.
I ran across these beautiful celeriac roots [AKA celery root] at the grocery store the other day, with their tops still intact. I picked up a couple to do some food photography for my microstock sites.
I recently had a semi solo show featuring some of my icons. It was in a very small gallery in New Mexico, an area rife with iconography, so I was hopeful it would be successful. And it was, just not in the way I had imagined.
