After beginning in June 2012, Nancy continues to draw.
and I continue to stitch,
though some of her more recent drawings are too line intensive.
But not to worry
cause I have ideas.
We brought home 470 more drawings
after an all too short visit with her last week.
Nancy makes this shape in many of her drawings:
I call it a vessel.
Sometimes she arranges them
in a specific way on the page.
Sometimes they are part of the overall design.
Sometimes she fills them.
And sometimes she spills them.
Most of the time, Nancy’s drawings are non-representational,
an expression of her emotional climate,
an expression of how she’s feeling
and her response to what’s happening around her.
people see shapes they recognize.
I always enjoy hearing what people see
or how Nancy’s drawings make them feel
or what they think about when they gaze upon her drawings.
Usually I like her drawings for the color choices she makes
or the intensity
or the movement.
But two of her most recent drawings made me wonder
if she was drawing a palm tree
perhaps the one that’s at the front door
of the ARC where she spends her days.
And a pumpkin
an artsy pumpkin.
And, well, this one tickles me
because I see an entire story.
Or at least a vignette.
Do you see it, too?
