This months topic:
"A peek inside your sketchbook"
I've had a number of sketchbooks throughout the years. I've sketched ideas that came to me as a gush of wind, ideas that came in my dreams, I've sketched by or for inspiration, to find a form or just for plain fun. I usually draw something and write notes on the side. I've sketched many times without writing anything because I thought it was too obvious and came later and had no idea what in the world I had in mind when I drew it. I have sketched and completed many ideas, but have sketched even more ideas that I never completed...perhaps I will some day...or not. I've drawn shapes that I've used later in some way or another. I may draw directly from nature, using photos, or from my head.
|These are sketches for recycled sterling sliver blobs I flattened with my rolling mill. I am happy to say that I ended up finishing most of these *almost* as I had originally designed them.|
|I designed and made this one for a dear friend of mine.|
|In process pieces made from the sketches above. I later changed the background color.|
|I often change ideas as I work along pieces.|
|This is an exercise I like to do to find interesting shapes. Very intuitive, spontaneous and random.|

|This and the following sketches are from a car trip I made last year to another Province in Argentina.|
