February was about jumping in and getting my feet messy. Now I'm ready to get my clothes paint splattered and charcoal covered, and from this mess, to see what arises from within. This month is about trying to find my voice. I'm taking a figurative drawing class entitled "Catalytic Drawing: Finding Your Own Voice" and an abstract painting class taught by Frank O'Cain, who "gives his students a point of departure that enables them to push their work toward a personal, abstract expression." I have high expectations based on the titles and descriptions of these courses. This photograph from my sculpture deconstruction photo shoot will act as my totem.
