This is the first time I’ve sent away one of my drawings to someone I didn’t know. This 4.5″ x 6.5″ piece of paper is making its way to the MacRostie Art Center in Grand Rapids Minnesota.
Often people compare sending their art away to sending their children away and it seems fitting at this time of year to send somebody off into the world to make their own way since none of my children are quite ready for that yet.
I have entitled this piece “Self Desk Portrait” and it is one in a number of pieces of varying sizes which portray random items from my desk crammed together. These works also must include a bit of my computer which is on my desk. Computers are so necessary to modern art but how often do they appear in our art?
