Boy it's been awhile, but I can say that post college life is a rocky one these days. I'm doing well with a new job and home! It's great to be back in Minnesota, even if it is still cold. Though it has been a remarkably mild winter.
So in moving to a new place, as all artists know leads to changing muses. I can't even begin to describe how much mine have changed. Of course I'm still in love with dreamscapes and conceptualization of abstract concepts in a variety of mediums, but there is something different that has been nagging my mind.
I've been drawn into the rolling landscapes cut by minnesotan rivers. The starkness of the winter fields are calling for me to put them onto paper. I long to put down the brilliance of February sunset's bursting indescribable vibrance and motion against the dormancy and biting cold.
Now I have never been a landscape artist or drawn to planes. However I'm so excited to take what I know of line-work and the limitations of working in pen and pencil to create a body of work that describes the new home I've found.
What a lovely challenge to take a step away from paint and dive into something new.
Here are some sketches from my developing body of work that isolates starkness, severity, and serenity of winter landscapes.
