Phantom Faces...



Well, I am seeing phantoms again.  Here I have uploaded two of my recent works created on fabric using colored pencils and Pitt artist pens.  In case you are wondering, I did find the pattern in the fabric and used that as the foundation for the faces.  The Pitt pens are used to do the black areas and I use a brown one to add darker areas too.  This first piece I call Hair Fire.

This one is inspired by two faces that I saw.  I call it dual personality as it represents our common self and the idea of a higher or more spiritual side.  The fabric was some hand dyed I received in a swap a number of years back.  I wish I could remember whose fabric this is as it is really beautiful.  

On a related note, this process is giving me more of a push to do some drawing again.  I find this type of work a little bit of cheating since I already have the beginning of it provided for me.  I just go in and fill in the blanks and add the details.  But, seeing my doodles again made me realize how much I miss the process of drawing.  It is funny how drawing, sculpting and painting all have very blissful feelings for me.  It is a good thing.
