Sticks and a red rock

Started working with the sticks I collected. Here's the result:

From Sources Nov 2009 / sticks & stuff

12x12, acrylic on canvas

Thinking about: space through warm/cool, thin/thick. Not using straight out of the tube colors -- picked a combination of two complements, blue/orange and red/green with some blue/green and yellow. Made sure I mixed up a warm and a cool neutral using the complements. Also thought about brush stroke - large/small; slow/fast.

Listening to Be Good Tanyas, Po' Girl, Michelle Shocked, and The Duhks.


  1. I really like this work. I can't wait to see it in person. Let's chat again soon!

  2. I love this Jill!! Thanks for that link about the graphite chick. It's very awesome to know that graphite is still out there :)

  3. Ooh this really has some nice space in it... It's funny, I think I'm going to steal your reading list for next semester... thinking a lot about the same stuff, even though our work is so different. I think despite the fact that you are feeling blocked, you're definitely getting somewhere. So exciting!
