Arting for 365 Day 41: Order

Day 41 (6/8/12): Order

21 x 26″ Ink on paper

Goal: To create one work of art each day for 365 consecutive days

You may or may not remember this, but last week I determined Fridays were destined to become “Coaster Fridays.” Well, I was wrong. Instead of designing a resting spot for a beer, I spent yesterday finishing up this big daddy of a drawing.

The design stemmed from my recent thoughts on order and organization – two things I struggle with and don’t really love. What I do love is being outside to enjoy nature, and so I began comparing the two. I recognized that the reason I like getting outdoors, beyond blowing the stink off of me, is that it seems open and free and somewhat random.  But as I thought about it more carefully, I realized that so much in nature is actually pretty structured too.  I decided I would create something to reflect the organization and patterns in the natural world.

The resulting piece is a juxtaposition of precise patterning created from less precise, “Micah-like” designs that give the work character beyond its structure.
