All You Need Is a Pencil and a Scrap of Paper

I stood looking at my painting in progress, Ojo de Dios, and grabbed a pencil to capture a few of the shapes/symbols I saw there.

They are very rough looking (bottom section), but I could use them just like they are: cut out the symbols and collage them onto a piece or two of art. I enjoy a rough, hastily scribbled look.

As always, I love to keep playing, which yields ever more designs and symbols.

I’m sure you’ve noticed that I haven’t redrawn the God’s Eye yet.

About CarolWiebe

Art entices, inspires, and delights me. Art is a vehicle for laughter, tears, wonder, enlightenment--taking me on a constant path of discovery. You can't say that about housework (except, perhaps, for the crying part).

  1. I really like this exercise. It gets even more interesting when you compound the images by mirroring and tiling them. What a cool language you’ve developed here. There are so many places you can go with this!

      Thanks, Robin, and I really appreciate that you left a comment. Knowing what others are wondering helps me to shape what I say. I am a teacher at heart.
