Wire Drawing #11, "Highest Power"
"Highest Power" 7" x 10" ink drawing on paper, $75
I'm still catching up after a whirlwind of trips that were back to back. I did this wire drawing while I was on the plane to Florida. It grabbed the attention of the lady next to me on the plane. She was asking me all kinds of questions about the process. I used Faber Castell permanent markers, because they are archival AND they don't smell. I could never use anything that smelled on a plane. Just another example of time on a plane that is not wasted. I used to do collages, using a glue stick and magazines for collage. That worked really well too, but this is so much easier! I also painted an acrylic painting using this as my study, and I'll post that one tomorrow.
