The South Orange Maplewood Artists Studio Tour is a little over a week away and I am just starting to organize and prepare some of the pieces that I will have on display. In addition to drawings completed over the past year, I will also have current works in progress, giclée prints of many of my drawings, and an assortment of my sketchbook drawings. Here are a few of my recently completed Strange Tales sketchbook drawings:
Strange Tale #37: Theodora kept her wicked words precariously balanced at the tip of her tongue
Pencil on Moleskine sketch paper, 5.25 x 3 inches (For the flickr view click here.)
Strange Tale #38: She Could Think of Ten Reasons to Celebrate
Pencil and glass beads on Moleskine sketchbook paper, stitched onto Arches hot press paper, 8.75 x 8.75 inches. (For the flickr view click here.)
This drawing will be part of TEN: The Soul of SOMA, a group installation piece by artists who have participated in the South Orange & Maplewood studio tour. This will be on display at the Pierro Gallery in South Orange as part of SOMA: Engaging Art, which runs from May 23 – June 22. The gallery opening for this event is this evening, Thursday, May 23, from 7 - 9 PM.
Strange Tale #39: The Death of an Artist (for A.)
Pencil and glass beads on Moleskine sketchbook paper, stitched onto Arches hot press, 14 x 12 inches. (For the flickr view click here.)
