drawing a day ~ week 14


drawing a day ~ week14 Originally uploaded by dressform.

the green the green.... i'm really liking the map related one [top row middle].... i could do that one over and over... in different ways.... different colors.... hmmmm

so... if any of you are headed to miami.... some of my work will be at the aqua art miami fair Dec. 1-4.... i wonder if i can experience the sun and fun my work will by proxy? mr. winter has decided to come around... brrr [and no - it's not snowing so yes i am a wimp about cold].... but it's kind of nice to wear a sweater and a scarf. i'm really wanting to make some fingerless glove arm warmer type things.... but i need time to knit [oh and i need to be a better knitter!that goes without saying]. when it gets dark so early i dream about curling up and drinking tea and nesting.... i have to get back on the tea horse... more tea more tea!! hopefully the countess will bottle some sun up and send it to me [i don't have to wear a bikini right??]. i can only hope.... actually she could substitute for the sunshine... that would suit me just fine!

i was going to make a list but it will have to wait until morrow.... i want to squeeze in a tad of work before i hit the hay

what a contrast: from lovely art/gifts from friends like Natalie to "lazy" students who seem uninspired despite your best efforts! A teacher who is as engaged as you are hopes that all students will respond with enthusiasm to one's efforts. But the reality is that one must accept it when a small number of them do. In fact, it is best to be grateful for those few for whom we have made a difference!

i'm loving these dragings a day more than any of the previous ones, and i've loved them all. these are especially great. i love the map one too and the one to it's right reminds me of an ink drawing i used to do quite similar to this...sort of klimty with tentacles!

How about me sending you a skein of alpaca yarn for those fingerless gloves you need to make? Your hands will be toasty warm!

LOVE the green on white...probably because it also reminds me of spring. The birds and the ones with the squares are my favourites I think.
How cold does it get in your area? And isn't sunshine in a bottle a fabulous thing? (Even so I usually call it self tanning lotion...) :)

can't WAIT to get a closer look at the drawings on flickr. I think I already know which one I like best.

and miami? forget about it. I'm begging for a reason to go down to miami. I've only been there once (july, the hottest time of year) and loved it... all the deco, the colors, the cuban influences... the turquoise ocean. LOVED it. and now you've got some work down there? I'm dying to go.

congrats on the Miami show, i would kill for some sunshine just now...

and I love your drawings a day series (you know i love your work!) the variety between the images each week and the step through the colour spectrum...This week does have a real map/aerial view feel to them
