Boat woman.

I started drawing a boat in illustrator. I love the simple boat shape, the boat represents so much for me. When my family would visit Alligator Point for our summer vacations usually there was a boat pulled up on the beach. My sister, Helen and I would play with it in the water. We didn’t have a clue about the boat, about the plug in the back. I am laughing thinking about it filling up with water, with us inside it..and how I had to swim it back to shore. Anyhow, back to the drawing.

I was using the calligraphy pen to stroke the curving slats.Then I added perpendicular strokes and ended up with a leg shape. Then it took on a life of its own. I used the leg layer and repeated it. I warped it to look like an arm and then a breast. And finally the hair.

I rotated warped and spun the abstract woman. I duplicated her over and over again. I swirled her about and ended up with this creation. 

All the while listening to London Grammar- Jazz Festival 2014… She sings in a lovely clear soprano voice. The band never over powers her. I stumbled across her music.

That is all…Play your music, sashay to your beat, do every thing you do with passion…focus sooooo intensely that time disappears—THAT is living.
