someone cute came up for a mini art retreat on my birthday.
one of my presents. accepted with glee!
just a few of pam's pages below. some she did here, some from before.
i saw her bag and immediatly wanted to draw/paint it.
so i did. and also copied some flowers from her sketchbook.
i drew/painted 2 bags on facing pages, but detested the final outcome. the pattern is way too bold to live easily next to each other. i did what any rational person would do and cut it out. and threw it away.
our sketchbooks were spread out all over drying. guess what we had for lunch?
i'm going to start "styling" all my photos with either pizza or cat boxes. what do you think?
this is ONE of my birthday presents.
starting to work on the bag sketch. i didn't notice till later that the handles looked like banana peels. sketching is hilarious. a total mood enhancer.
fly swatters also work well for unstyled photos. what do you think? someone told me once that my wooden angel head i lugged back from san miguel de allende 12 years ago looked like bill clinton.
ever since then it's all i see when i look at it.
good thing i'm a fan.
bill's been hanging around my kitchen for a dozen years.
but he's only been tilted for the last 6 or 7.
