|Who Will Run the Frog Hospital. 2009 (in progress). Graphite on paper.|
I've been working on this for a few years; it takes its title from the Lorrie Moore novel, inspired by a painting done by one of the two main characters, Sils, as described by her best friend Berie:
This could yield a series drawing from literature and fairy tales and my own life, especially childhood. In this piece Sils and Berie are played by me and my friend Donna, though the girls in the drawing are younger than the girls in the book, and Donna and I didn't know each other as young children.
A late night project that was just short of an all-nighter, the night before Janine's last weekday at MICA. The addition of colour always changes the game, and the peach Sharpie was intense–hello day at Rehoboth!–so I knocked it back with watered down gesso.

Space is an element I'm exploring in drawings; on a two-dimensional surface, it's really the illusion of space.
documenting drawings as I work on them will help me figure out what the balance should be.
