Work in Progress – morning drawing

Here’s the start of a new drawing I’m working on in the mornings. The shiny surface that you see is a layer of masking to help protect the black background while I’m working. “Riff” is the working title, though that may change. I went to a jazz concert at the Folly Theater about two weeks ago and sometimes these shapes look like jazz to me.

This piece is made of two seperate drawings (scroll down to an earlier progress post and you will see).

Not a wordsmith today. Here’s a little free association about what I’m thinking about here:  staccato motion, constant interuption, inability to move forward or move smoothly forward, one thing leads to another.
