Governor Wentworth Arts Council is pleased to announce "Daily Musings" by member artist Becky Bense.
From the Artist:
"Neurographic art is a form of meditative art often used in conjunction with therapy. These pieces were done in the style of neurographic art combined with a creative twist and a daily practice of painting.
Here is how I do it. I pick an idea from the things I see, read, hear, or wonder about. This becomes the title.
First, I take a minute or two and think about a subject. Then I put the pen to the paper with the idea of just letting it go where it may. Think of pushing a marble across the page with your pen, letting go of the outcome and creating lines that are seemingly nonsensical and not repeating. The next step is to go back in and “round” the intersections of these lines. Then I examine what happened and see if anything presents itself, like a crane or a human, adding more lines to make what I see more obvious and so hopefully you can see it, too! Next comes the paint and occasionally there is some back and forth between the paint and the ink.
Thank you for taking your time to check out my art. These are for sale, and you can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org"
