It’s been a couple of weeks since I made any art, because I’ve been trying to get ready for the new semester of teaching, but that is a whole different topic for another post… let’s talk inspiration for this development instead.

See T’Hed Eighteen for previous progressions…

First, I found a small stack of white card stock: 8″ x 8″ (20cm x 20cm)and just knew I needed to continue this exploration on them. The big question was what media to use. Since I’ve been steeped in lesson planning considerations on Cubism lately, and my favourite Picasso quote paraphrased it’s way through my thoughts:

my mind has started looking at challenges in terms of guiding questions and the following questions came to me: “It took me four years to paint like Raphael, but a lifetime to paint like a child.” The meaning of this changes for me every few years… right now it helped me formulate the following intention of inquiry for this exploration: Can I make mature art using materials usually reserved to children? In this case, wax crayons. Why not try with T’Hed, as I’ve allowed myself to let go of perfection and pursue experience instead?

Let’s see where this goes…
