In the not too distant past the only way on or off P.E.I. was by ferry boat. I managed to spend more than a few hours on those affectionately named “Egg Crates”. Today’s post “On Deck” is an early morning vignette from one of the boats.
On the dresser sits a mirror, and while most mirrors merely reflect their surroundings this one can take you to places mysterious and sublime.
Today’s painting “Shell Dream” is from a few years ago. It was nice to play with some actual texture as I built up the forms of the shells.
I guess if all you had to do was stare at the same bit of a city street all day long, you might come off as stern-faced too.
Today’s picture is from quite a few years ago. It is an image of one of those amazing bits of nature that get scattered along the beaches of P.E.I. These shells are often broken and because of that they reveal the divine geometry that lies within.
Today’s image is an example for an exercise I used to do with my students. They would begin by drawing an outline of their profile. Then they would fill the inside of the profile with an image of their choosing. The area around the head would be filled in with an alternate image, that could either compliment or contrast with what was in their head.
The buoys looked like a group of giant Concord grapes left out in the sun to dry.
