another turn of the page....
I would love to make a graphic novel. It would take me a very very long time, at the rate I draw and paint. For example, this little number was a two-hour (plus, probably) stint. I guess that includes picture-taking, checking on the home made bread, doctoring my (EXTREMELY PAINFUL) wasp sting, sketching, taking the bread out and eating the warm crunchy heels with pesto (o my god), penning, watercoloring, penning again......yeah I guess that is about right.
I also love the times when I sit down in a creative flurry and draw stuff that's really loose and it comes together BAM! That shines through too. Well there are days and then there are days, eh?
Also - it is officially still my weekend, as it's extended by a couple days this week, and I promised I would endeavor to find those pictures that are hanging in my kitchen, the ones that Jacque and I did together in December 2002. So, and here:
The background is a huge painting, by Jacque. Isn't it incredible? We didn't plan it like this, but the pictures and what we were messing around doing synched up so well with her artwork.
bon soir mes amis!
