Large Artist Sketchbook 2021 Pages 9 and 10

Here’s another one of my artist sketchbooks for you to see. It was finished in May of 2021 but the artworks were done over the previous year or so, I guess. I’ll be showing you page spreads, one each week, for as long as the book goes on.

As you know, I make these books for my own enjoyment. I work on a page as the inclination strikes me and I never have a plan for the book or for the artwork that goes into it. There is no theme, no meaning, other than what each image shows the viewer and the viewer takes away from the experience.

In this book I did artwork on the front and back of each page. There’s nothing written associated with the images, and the images paired in each page spread do not relate to each other in any way except for being side by side.

I hope you enjoy looking at this book!

Here is the page spread for today:

And here are the individual pages.

      Thank you. I like trees and being outside in winter. And this is the right time to view the trees in their most revealing state. I used magazine papers and paint with a roller here, I think. I like the effect.

      Thank you. I find I like a grid or circles, arranged or not, and over the years I return to these two forms again and again (no idea why except that it feels nice to use them…)

          Oh yes, I think I’ve done people in that manner especially in collage and fabric. I think when I first got the courage to try to depict people I used geometric shapes and built up the figures. And in clay, people have referred to some of the people figures with that word. Funny, I never focus ed on this until now.
