working big

If you've seen my website and been following my blog, you've probably noticed how much I love to draw hands. I just think they're beautiful and so full of subtle communication. They're also difficult to draw, so a major reason I've been doing it is for practice. 

Some of the best advice I was ever given by a teacher was to stop painting and start drawing. He didn't mean that painting was bad. he meant that I was always so excited to paint that I wasn't preparing a strong foundation for my pieces. He assured me that after I focused further on drawing, if I really loved painting it would find its way back into my work. 

Working abstractly with traditional materials is one of the most freeing activities in the world.
