Spread 0165 – Restless


Spread 0165 – Restless

28 March 2013

Vintage and personal images, found papers, tracing papers images, wallpapers, Nova Color paints, white gesso, Adirondack Spray Inks, matt medium, Sigano white gel pen, Micron black pen, Sharpie paint pens.

Long about this time of year it happens for me, a restlessness about spring and warm weather, and planting. It is also restlessness to work in my journal in my favorite space, my backyard. Stirrings in my soul. Do you feel it too?

    Brian ~ your work constantly pulls me in and begs me to sit and stay and wander around. Thank you for sharing your honesty and gorgeous talent!

    This image of the boy is “soul stirring”….influencing my mood. There is something about that boy that feels universal, something tender, and something harsh. Needy yet defiant. It’s rare that we can express our contradictions so genuinely like you did here. Noticed how the ‘boy’ springs out from the foggy background…Springs out..XOXO
    Your ‘boy’ is moving me…

    Everything about this spread is wonderful. The background supports the beautiful image so nicely. You were really able to express all your feelings.

    I’m so drawn to this figure you’ve created. the red details, his expression, the contouring of his shape…

    so expressive and wonderful. xo
