Recently, I decided to draw and paint some of my mother’s china patterns. The china has already been commandeered by various family members but I wanted to create some memory of it, the fine dinner parties and the good company for my mother. Here is the first attempt at one of her pieces using a process approach. Most of you know I’m not what I would call a “perfectionistic” or “fussy” artist. I barely look at the page when I draw, trying to trust my eye to send the proper messages back to my visual cortex and hope that it all transfers through to the motor cortex properly! I hardly ever erase so what I see is what you get. Enjoy, have a root through your family things and see what you can make of it and, as always, keep making art.
