Weathered Old Lady..

I've decided to pour in some more personal insights into the art book... Enzo was actually a separate book I think will fit better into the art book. Not a re-hash of history... when I read an art book I always wonder, what free floating thoughts, music, smells or seasons occurred when such and such a page was drawn?

That's the plan. We'll se how it all jells together. At least it might make it worthy of a second read rather than just be a big 'picture book'..


Meanwhile... here's something else I tried.

I decided to 'age' the paper I drew it on, just like her skin is aged.

You can see I wanted her scarf to cover more of her head so I clumsily pasted over another piece of paper.

I love the leathery skin ones gets as they ages.

Tried to 'blur' her mid way down the body...

....trying for some feeling motion?

actually, could almost be an old man. Funny how depending on the body type, the gender almost disappears in some people.

Hey, I have to throw in some quasi -normal portraits between all these abstracts I do, eh?


Btw: Thanks for the kind comments.. it's flattering when fans see my whole body of work as a whole piece. More and more... it feels like that to me too, even if some of it was work for hire or owned by a publisher, and some i own, it all bears my thumb print in some way, eh?


Have a cool holiday everyone!

ps: .....lastly hear it is... scanned... without all the wacky dutch camera angles.
