Here we go – one more attempt to work on composition. This drawing was inspired by music and the fold at the top right of the drawing.  Last night I kept seeing the fold – a dark, thin strip folded sharply with the tales moving in opposite directions. As I worked on the drawing I integrated a swirling movement that made me think of a lilting, looping pattern of music. I felt like the “ribbon” was going to fly away if it wasn’t anchored somehow so I added the oval shape to tie it down. This was really fun and pushed me to think…

    Keep making beautiful drawings!!

    ps: and thumbs-up for watching Godfather, cool movie 😀

    • Thank you Gregor. I feel like I am in a period of thought. These small sketches, drawings, paintings – whatever – seem to be feeding my subconcious. I feel like a plant underground being nourished and getting ready to sprout. I am not prepared right now to take on a large scale painting so I am in meditation (?) mode. Probably more than you ever wanted to know.

    Very appealing! I love one and think you ought to do a series with this idea.

    I like the oval shape anchoring the ribbon. It looks like the ribbon will sway and move to the sound of the music.

  4. Hi Carol, I thought so too. And you know how I love my circles. After all an oval is just a circle that’s relaxed….right?

    Life unfolding. That was the thought that this inspired in me as I saw the oval as an egg. Neat idea!

    To me this looks rather like a music note. I love the movement and what you did with the light and shadow. Fun!
