Organic Escapes… my pencil drawings. I am sooo fond of them. I still truly love them. I love that they existed for me. I love that they are. I began creating them more than 20 years ago while in college. The beginning came from a stone lithography independent study. I stared at this rock slab and found myself getting kind of lost in the grain. So that is where I began. As they developed over the next 20 years, I found pencil to be my favorite method of creating them. I described the process of creating them as escaping into the worlds that I was creating… existing in the place where my pencil point was. It has been a while since I have sat and focused enough to complete one. It is hard for me to know if that is because I no longer need to escape or something else. I am curious to see if I escape into another one again sometime or if that phase has passed.
