Drawing In Nature Or Is It Drawing Nature?

Nature

The beauty of drawing isn’t simply what shows up on paper. The beauty of drawing for me is the process. Take for example when drawing in nature, I’m not so much excited about the end result, (well, maybe a little), but I’m more into the process.

Combining the lines, making the shapes, seeing gradually, how the image comes together.

New Art: A New York State Of Mind

New York State

Sometimes when creating art, I struggle for ideas. But then something clicks. Something in the back of my mind just says try this.

Living in the great state of New York, this idea was rather obvious. I thought, why not add a little mandala art to the Empire State?
