“Live with Intention” Maryann Radmacher

About the artist:

Brenda Gordon has lived in the Northwest her entire life, However, growing up in Portland gave her many opportunities to spend time on the Oregon Coast… it is there, on retreat and rejuvenation, that she has visited to gather inspiration for her art.  Back in her studio, that energy, potential, beauty and possibility have continued and intentionally impacted her creative work no matter the medium.

Create.  Potential. Intention.

“All three of those words have informed my life of creativity.  From the time I was a child with less resources to now, paper, pen or pencil were a grounding force. Always drawing something, doodling, making paper, sewing with paper– seeing and exploring potential in various mediums with paper…and now, after years of doodling and drawing with pen and paper in many books, I bring you quotes  to reflect upon, perhaps, embrace along with drawings of said pen on paper.”   Brenda Gordon.

 

 

When I was at your gallery recently, you asked if I would send you some of my pen and ink drawings for the gallery.   This is my first experience selling through a gallery.   Thank you so much for your help.  I am looking forward to working with you and sharing my mandala  art work with quotes. Peace~  Brenda Gordon 

 

 

 

 

Q: What is a mandala, you ask?

A: A mandala is a complex abstract design that is usually circular in form. In fact, “mandala” is a Sanskrit word that means “circle”. Mandalas generally have one identifiable center point, from which emanates an array of symbols, shapes and forms.

Q: What are pen and ink drawings, you ask?

A:  Pen and ink drawing describes the process of using pens to apply ink to a surface. Drawing with pen and ink allows the artist to create strong areas of contrast. Most ink drawings are completed using black inks on white surfaces which leads to heavy contrast in value.

A: It is the design and execution of lettering with a broad tip instrument pen, ink brush, or other writing instruments. Calligraphy pens are a special class of fountain pen.
