Sharing my art is very hard for me, as it is for many people, because I am friends with what I call “real artists,” whose work is far and away better than mine; I try to remember that they are further along their life path as artists–for personal reasons, I never made much art as a child or young adult, and my energies are so dispersed with things like poetry, sewing, needlework, etc. that I really could be using my practice time more effectively. So.
But a few people (one of whom is an artist I deeply admire, as well as a good friend) have asked to see some things I’ve done. I am having a bit of trouble photographing some of the paintings because I use dark, tonal work a lot, and that’s not showing up very well, even with a flash to show the brushstrokes and things. But until I can get that going on, at least here are a couple of gluebook pages, an artistamp, and an Everyday Matters sketch:
