So, for my first post on the site, I’m showing one of my favorite pieces of art supplies. The holy yam or sweet potato. I use a brush a lot. I use my fingers. I use graphite. I use crayons, (French, of course) and I love paint. And painting a circle or dot…both symbols I’ve used for years now, is not just fun but terrifying at times. Someone recently asked me why a circle. Gee, if I figured it out, I’d probably not feel the need to use it anymore. I am well into the small paintings/drawings on paper that will be in the exhibition. I have never done ‘regional’ type work, so it’s strange to me. and exciting. Glad to be a part of it all.
