a couple of drawings

In the studio there's always a stack of off white paper cut into 6" x 6" squares sitting on the edge of my drawing table ready to go.  I like them because they aren't fussy, just predictable and familiar surfaces for me to work out ideas on.  As a matter of fact, the title drawing and text to this blog was drawn on one of these little squares.  Once a pile gets going I flip through them like a deck of cards, or sometimes pin a bunch on the wall to see what's happening as a whole in that particular stream of consciousness.  Every once in awhile they'll evolve into a painting, but mostly I just borrow elements.  

These two are a couple I did this week with water color pencils, my current favorite art supply product.  I'm thinking a lot these days about nestling shapes.
