The color and pattern collages are still interesting to me. Composing with paper alone is so different than mixing color. I like the immediacy and freedom it offers. The tendency I have is to create an abstracted realism, so I'm focusing a bit more on abstraction. I always seesaw between these choices. I find the most freedom in pure abstract drawing in my sketchbooks. The drawing project is teaching me at least one thing very clearly: make at least one drawing every day no matter what. It's SO easy to find a reason not to draw! And they are valid, those reasons...but I find if I do it anyway I do get somewhere.
