Cubic Self-Portrait in My Dreams

Cubic Me is an empirical fantasy of a splendid day.

I was drawing portraits and saw a photograph of Lady Gaga. Soon I was blurring reality in juxtaposition.

I was studying Cubism. My first attempt at Cubism was a self-portrait,  titled Modular Me.

Since I enjoy geometric prints and adored geometry in high school,  Cubism promises to be a natural for me, but I have some work to do.

It’s fun to re-composite an image in geometric shapes, but more challenging is to imagine a flat object from different viewpoints and to create that final image with differing viewpoints and on different planes, which is pure Cubism.

I am at an impasse. Cubism is analytical art from different viewpoints, but my images are from a single viewpoint.

In Cubist artwork, objects are analyzed, broken up, and reassembled to represent the subject in a greater context. In contrast, my images simply celebrate perspective, form, and color.

I’ve posted a new line drawing to color and doodle. It’s an illustration by Darrell Wiskur for a children’s journal and activity book titled, Mommy’s Days, written by our daughter Wendy O’Dell.

I had fun coloring the drawing on the iPad, and thought you might like to as well.

My love for art comes from years in the studio of Wiskur Productions, with my husband, Darrell Wiskur, a designer and photographer. Also, I was an editor and photographer in the real world for 17 years ... all the while, thankful for an artful life and cherished memories. Photos are ©2019 Darrell D. Wiskur
