Work in progress - abstract


After a week or so of a lot of internet problems - I'm finally able to get online and stay there for awhile (I think).  So - I'm posting the beginning of a larger abstract on which I'm working.  This is the bare beginning - it is acrylic on paper - and is composed of many many dots.    I will keep updating this as it progresses!   Its intriguing - and a times - it feels like it may never get finished!

Unfolding ....

Unfolding,  8x8" graphite on clayboard
©2010, Helen Read 
Ready to mat and frame 

This is one of the things I've been working on in the last few weeks.  There is something so interesting in the way a rose is arranged ... and as it unfolds revealing more and more of itself, it is almost like a metaphor for life!      I enjoy working with graphite ~ in its time consuming way.  And I especially enjoy working with graphite on clayboard.
