Sometimes I make drawings

During the last week of my residency at the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts, I started a series of little black and white drawings using black chalkboard paint on paper. I was surprised and delighted to find out that when you draw with a graphite pencil on the painted surface, the lines appear silver! I also used overlays of Mylar, a translucent acetate, which I both cut through and drew on as well. This technique relates to my recent paintings which employ layers of acrylic matte medium to create a similarly translucent, waxy surface.

Here are three of the 12 little drawings. They will be on exhibit this summer at the Groton Public Library and also at the Bromfield Gallery's drawing exhibit this July.
