Sunshine (and some friends)

As I’ve been working from a table in the kitchen while waiting for the finish of the studio construction my art took a turn toward the small. blog sunburst © Lynne Medsker

Many pieces were created on scraps of wood collected from the building and some, like this sun, are on small 6×6″ wood panels. Painted backgrounds in various shades led me to create a variety of different images with torn book pages. Here are the beginning stages:

To see how this, and others progressed, here are additional images.

I like to add shading with charcoal or graphite before I do the outline & design work. It helps the pieces to seem more dimensional! The details are done with marker and ink. These are just a few of the pieces I made over the last few months. Some have found new homes during art shows and from galleries and a few are still keeping me company. I’ve even presented a couple of classes guiding others through the process, which was a lot of fun!

Keeping creative,

Lynne
