drawing a day - week 3


drawing a day - week 3 Originally uploaded by dressform.

it's funny how crucial your relationship to color is. duh. i knew that, but it kicked me hard under the table this week. i like this brown, but it was much harder to think of what to do... it is so much more subtle than red or orange. when i was photographing them the brown actually cast a yellow hue on the paper! i am really happy with the blue one, though. the one where i made holes in the paper and blanket stitched around them. i think that one [like the doily ones] has a lot of potential to go further. we shall see.

the katrina quilt is coming along great! it's very exciting!

oh! the cozy tree from a few posts ago ... charlene from ursonate thought that it was by Rebecca Vaughan. I think she's right [esp. since i think ms. vaughan lives in ohio!]. i can't seem to find any good images on the world wide... i'm still hunting her down though. i need to know more! if anyone has any good leads, i'd be obliged [maybe someone knows her???]

I hope you'll find her...there are so many questions to ask! How long it took and how people reacted when they saw her crocheting away high up in the branches...:)

Your work is wonderful as always...I sometimes picture a huge white room with all your 'drawings a day' on display - there would be so much to look at and enjoy.

something about the simplicity of the lines of these drawings... so lovely. though I love them all, I am most drawn to the top middle one.
