Pilchuck Madness #6
Slept in this morning until 11:30, which was GREAT!!! Got up, took a shower, did some laundry, and it was suddenly time for lunch. After lunch I was in the print shop all afternoon and had a really fun time. Don't have any images of what I've been working on, but they are inspired by things I was doing a few years ago, such as the red/black acrylic painting at the top and the oil pastel drawing below it.
It seems like ever since I went back to school I've been so focused on design that I've really moved to working with grids and straight lines and don't very often do projects that aren't somewhat rigid. I was hoping that my time here would let me develop more fluidity and introduce some organic elements into my work. If I'm able to successfully combine my art and design, I think I'll be there.
Also, we had a slide show tonight by the de la Torre Brothers (Einar and Jamex) that was really cool. Their website is also super slick, although it has less work on it than we saw earlier. I'm so excited to be surrounded by such great artists, both teachers and students!
