“The Labyrinth of My Mind”

by Ruth Francis

You are invited
FEATURED ARTIST’S SHOW & RECEPTION
Free Event

“The ‘Labyrinth’ of one’s mind is a journey.  It is a path that can offer valued lessons and assist in addressing challenges.  So as to my art, I hold no restrictions.  I do not restrict my mind to follow any regulated pattern.  I follow a path to where my creativity takes me.
It is a wonderful venture.  One of many colors, temperatures, textures and values.”

Silverpoint is one of the oldest art mediums.  It was the primary medium for sketching by artists before the invention of the graphite pencil and was favored by master artists like da Vinci, Durer, Rembrandt, Raphael, and van Eyck. 
It is only done with lines and cannot create shading or smudging.  It therefore requires advanced drawing skills.  Silverpoint will produce a shining glow at first, but it will oxidize and tarnish over time, creating a warm patina that no other medium can produce.
