Exploring Drawing Class

The first day in life drawing class was a eye opener. I had always used drawing as a method of expression and spent many hours as a child at the practice.  Being confronted with a live model and new materials created a shift in my thinking about representation.  
The game had changed and the comfort zone that allowed some level of success was pushed aside. The lid was off the box. The preciousness of previous work disappeared and new work became more interesting. Making the work became most important, the subject secondary. In the rush I reached to anything at hand.
A kerosine lamp and camp stove served as drawing subjects. 
While exploring different materials and forms of representation pots and pans, cookie jars  and tea cups were readily available and quickly adopted as subject material.
