Charcoal Pencil Ink

drawing with whatever is at hand

on my mark ...

When I first started my formal training at FSU I realized my hands were even more clunky with the black brittle charcoal, as they were with ivory rhythmic keys; often declaring: My hands are bricks. Thankfully there is the concept of gesture drawing or visual expression in time and flow with the environment.

My out of bounds sketches progressed to two handed, hands and knees on the stage, drawing the band in time, emotional portrait explosions. (bad word - The Explosions are literally their own series.)

My scaling up and speed caused disenchantment with the standardized selection in the stores--- so out into the environment I went, on a date with Mother Necessity. I hiked National Forest controlled burn areas and collided paper with 20' tall living sticks of charcoal. A perfect solution: I had become the table and the tree a Warhol "Superstar".
