torn drawings



As I go through numerous life drawings from decades ago, the least favourite are being ripped up and put into the paper recycling bin. Today, I decided to rip these into even smaller pieces and feed them to the compost as carbon material to balance the current overload of nitrogen from lawn clippings. A few little pieces attracted me and I thought I’d scan them.

The first ones are reminding me too much of kitchen towels drying on the clothesline, maybe because I do have stuff on the line at present! The second set makes me think of ancient Greek or Roman fresco pieces, which is so much more artistic. What fun!
