“A drawing is simply a line going for a walk.” – Paul Klee
I love the way Paul Klee relates the act of drawing to going for a walk: Sometimes we walk because we want to reach a specific destination, or to complete some task; sometimes we walk to get out of the house, to go someplace fresh, to see something a little different. There are as many reasons to start a drawing as there are to take a walk.
Each drawing is a journey. Some journeys are arduous; others are less so. Some take forever and seemingly go nowhere. Others are over in a flash. At the end, we have a drawing, a finished piece that is a record of the journey we took in thought and imagination.
Here you will find a record of my journeys, a collection of drawings that reflect places I’ve been, things I’ve seen, people I’ve known, thoughts I’ve pondered. Perhaps you will be inspired by what you see here. If so, I hope you pick up a pencil of your own and go take a line for a walk.
