Two years ago today, I posted three pieces of my artwork and I’m sharing them again now for Fandango’s Friday Flashback. I’m already getting inspired just looking at my old work…
I realized that one of the topics I haven’t covered here on my blog is my love of art. Gasp! How could I forget to mention that?
To that end, today I’m posting three of my recent artworks. These are all done with mixed media, by which I mean some combination of permanent marker and pen with watercolor, brush pens, or colored markers. This style is one that I’ve been developing over the past four or five years at least, and one that is largely inspired by my need to doodle. Doodling helps me concentrate and provides relief from my anxiety. For a lot of the work I do, I derive inspiration from Zentangle patterns. Often I’ll start with a pattern and over time morph it into my own pattern, which then appears over and over in my drawings.
Here are three of my pieces, titled “Twilight Bloom,” “Enchanted Jewels,” and “Delicate Decrescendo,” respectively.
