I am constantly thinking in metaphors. I am never sure if it is a gift or a curse. I found my 8x5 sketchbook and browsed through lots of pictures of faucets. If I ever put together an allegorical piece it would include a faucet of some kind.
A faucet could represent a lot of things. It could be the beginning of a flow, or the source of nurturing waters. It could be the means to which something is retrieved. In my case it could be all of those things and a representative of the last name Faucett which is my maiden name.
I am not sure if I will ever do an allegorical piece. For now, I am just making a collection of ideas that might support it.
Toxic - This is a journal entry before words are added.The topic of toxic people has been coming up in many discussions lately. This is how I think it would look if you could make a visual image. This started as a simple form study and ended up as this. #journal #art #artjournal #selfcare #toxicpeople #getitoutofmyhead
Eternal Wait - I finally quit fidgeting with this one. It is #graphite on 8.5x11 smooth bristol board. It is nice to get something to a finish. No matter where I roam in media, graphite will always be my true love. I will be taking this to #Shakedown3 this weekend if you want to see it in person. #art #artist #drawingvia Instagram
Number 3 in my quest to complete #inktober2017 I started with an ink wash and then used my Microns to accent the details. This is definitely an experiment worth repeating. It reminds me of the interior illustrations in books when I was a kid It is #ink on #watercolorpostcard #art #artist #drawing #illustrationvia Instagram
