Etch A Sketch
We have all played with an Etch A Sketch and tried to make a picture. The painting above shows what is possible when you reduce our three dimensional world to a single line. With an Etch A Sketch you can cross, double back and re-trace lines you have already created. The challenge is to make what seems impossible possible; create an image from a single line without crossing, doubling back or re-tracing any lines.
This is the beauty of Jonathan's ability to see our complex world as a single continuous line. As you follow the line from START to END, you discover a hidden joy. The purpose of art is to make people feel. When you find art that gives you joy as you re-trace a simple line it is truly unforgetable.
The piece above was commissioned by the homeowner to depict his house as a oneLINE inside an Etch A Sketch. The result is a demonstration of Jonathan's talent with both watercolor and ink. We hope the piece above adds a new twist to old adage "the Joy of home ownership".
