My camera and I keep capturing images that inspire my jewelry making. This time it’s about LINE!
My mother was an artist and a teacher. She taught me that line is the foundation of art and that there are unlimited kinds of lines. Some join to make a shape. Some intersect. Some wander. I learned about vanishing lines where the land meets the sky and you aren’t quite sure where.
Mother made line drawings of people that told wonderful stories. This is one I found in her sketchbook. This line drawing was made during a faculty meeting and I can imagine just what each person was saying or thinking. Bet you can too!
In one of my college art classes, we were to make 5 drawings using only line to depict recognizable objects without drawing an outline of the object. See if you can draw a broom using only parallel lines!
I’ve been thinking about lines and how we use them in our daily life. Think about and look for the lines in your life. I’d love to hear some of your experiences with daily lines. Leave a comment or send me an email and I’ll add yours to my list below.
