Woven

abstract pencil drawing woven artist janine aykens
"Woven" Pencil 6" x 4"
From the sketchbook, titled as the forms seemed to weave themselves together.

Some interesting results from my sketches lately; I will have to play with some image transfers to create some larger, finished work...

Reedscape

abstract pencil drawing reedscape artist janine aykens

Something from the sketchbook, just a random little pencil sketch.  The vertical forms started looking like reeds to me, hence the title.

"Pear Pair II" Pastel 4" x 6"

Three works from a still life series inspired by a lovely box of pears we received as a gift from our realtor.  I guess that's why I haven't had a new post in a while; too busy wheeling and dealing real estate!

Soft pastel on Richeson paper.

Some Pig

some pig pastel barnyard animal artist janine aykens
"Some Pig" Pastel, 11" x 8.5"
This is "Some Pig"...not in the Charlotte's Web sense, but rather, it started out as a very different piece.  The reference photo was Canada Geese having a swim, if you can believe that, but after fussing and fighting it and not getting anywhere, I turned it upside-down and just started blocking in areas of color, and it turned into...some pig.
