Timeout for Art: Picking Up

Sometimes, marks on the page are just that.

Recording what is there, perhaps, whether the objects are worthy subject matter or not, but not to tell a story, and not to make “art” of it.

There are times when it’s not about art, at all.

Sometimes, it’s just that moment in time, marking tool in hand, present in the moment.

Sometimes, that’s enough.

About cindyricksgers

I am an artist. I live on an island in northern Lake Michigan, USA. I have two grown daughters, four strong, smart and handsome grandsons and one beautiful, intelligent and charming granddaughter. I live with two spoiled dogs. I love walking in the woods around my home, reading, writing and playing in my studio.

    • I like the softness about them, too. It’s a timid line, but that reflects how I feel, picking up a drawing tool after neglecting it for too long. It takes a while to get the confidence back!

  1. These drawings are beautiful, Cindy. I often look at objects in my house and think that I would like to sketch them. Which is amazing, since I have zero talent as a sketch artist. Thankfully, the urge passes and I go read a book.
