ARTWORKS TWO: MICHAEL BURNS

In posting these drawings, I had forgotten how much I love drawing…
painting really is only drawing with color.

It would excite and entertain me for hours on end in the imaginings of these drwings, they become their own reality, relating emotions and thoughts that are not readily on the page.

I have thousands of drawings, and I am a consummate risk taker, when I draw.
I love learning of a new ways to draw or sketch. I draw with pencil, charcoal. i draw in ink and silver point. With anything nd I also looking for new ways to make marks on a surface. I have drawn with red wine out of glass.

Inventing new media to draw with is quite exciting.
I have even used a copper penny on a specially prepared ground to create an image.

It inspired my love for the slow and meditative art of silver point drawing. Which I still do.

The works below are variety of things done. A lot of drawings and a few paintings thrown in.
