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.
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
A closer look at the same pose. I notice that #art is a lot like writing. The rough sketch is the idea. The second sketch is like the initial edit. The more I draw the same #sketch the more solid the ideas become. I bet the pros know this, but I am just discovering the power of a redraw. #art #artist #sketchbook #drawingvia Instagram
