What do my two new abstract drawings have in common? They are all about flowing lines. Indeed, you could say that about most of my abstract, pattern/line work—I guess I’m a sucker for curving, flowing shapes. Here are two new ones that I just posted in my shop:


“Fan,” 5 x 7 inches, pen and ink


“Chitarra,” 5 x 7 inches, pen and ink

For those who don’t know, the second piece name “Chitarra” is the Italian word for guitar, pronounced key-tar-rah. Yes, “ch” in Italian is pronounced like “k.” Confusing, but it makes this word beautiful. I’m not trying to be snobbish and artsy by naming pieces with Italian words—I am half Italian, and so sometimes I think of Italian words, and they seem more appropriate than the English version.

I did not start out trying to draw anything in particular with this, but I felt like the final shape looked like a musical instrument to me, and then I started to like the idea of this abstract flowing instrument, and so I made it a stand. Perhaps I’ll start a series! Who knows what tomorrow may bring! Happy creating!

    Kaefka, thank you for your comment! That is meant to be a stand, and I see what you mean that “Fan” has a part that looks like the underside of a mushroom. Thanks for looking!
