Rebecca Payne an Artist of Many Passions
Hi, my name is Rebecca Payne and for years I wanted a blog to be a kind of portfolio of my work. I have been drawing and making art since I was short; over 30 years.
I studied at Louisiana State University but mostly developed on my own. I have had many commissions and I enjoy all kinds of portraits, still life and cityscapes. Keeping sketchbooks and recording everyday life in them is one of my passions; I enjoy sketch outings. I recently moved to Atlanta, GA from Detroit, MI and I am looking forward to drawing the local sites.
Lines of Expression
I struggled with the name of the blog because I know that I have several passions I may want to blog about. After thinking about it for too long, I chose the name Lines of Expression since it would fit anything that I might create, not just drawings.
- Drawing is my first passion. I enjoy inks, watercolor, water soluble crayons, and colored pencils. This will be the main theme of the blog, but I may also include posts about any number of other passions.
- Natural hair is another passion of mine. There will be many drawings of this, and I will post them as they develop.
- Knitting and crocheting is another passion I have that has been passed down from my elders. I haven’t done either in awhile, but occasionally I may post about a project that I am working on. This passion is currently on the back burner, but it may pop up in the future.
- Collage is another passion that I am prone to occasionally work on and there may be occasional posts on this topic too.
I will be posting once or twice a week until I can get a working rhythm mastered and then it may increase.
It has been surprising how much work it is to maintain a blog. I heard that it is way better than having a website, so far I have found that this is true. It is certainly easier to connect with other artists. It would be amazing to build an army of artist friends so that we can motivate each other.
