And sometimes a bit heavy-handedly!
I woke this morning with an idea to create a frame for an art quote using some fo the fragment variations from the Fragments of Your Imagination Challenge. So I did. And here it is.
Some bits of the frame are a tad clunky, but overall I think it’s good enough.
The quote from Ruskin about art is one of my favourites. I don’t set out to create art with any kind of message that may change how people view aspects of the world/society we live in. I don’t set out to record my observations on life, to tell a story. My art is personal to me as I create drawings that contain patterns, line-shapes, motifs that make me smile inwardly. If I make any one other person smile, then my art has done it’s job.
I get a lot of pleasure, contentment, and peace from drawing. And I hope that comes across in my art. I want to draw designs that are pretty, interesting, intricate. Drawings that you have to stop and look carefully at to see all the different things within them.
