Wire Drawings with my family
I just returned from a trip to Spearfish, SD to visit my parents. My sister, Nancy, and niece, Janine, were also there visiting. One evening, I taught them how to do a wire drawing of a sewing machine. The plan is for Nancy to use one of the drawings for her new business card. Her business is Functional Art. Check it out! Great texture art for the home! To do a wire drawing, you must scribble, then do a contour drawing, and then link all the pieces. Kind of hard to explain without a visual. Someday I may do a video on it. Sorry I haven't posted for awhile. I'll catch up in the coming days, OK? It's been a very busy spell for me!
