A New Big Piece and Friday the 13th!
I think I mentioned a few days back..that I was wanting my artwork to follow its path..that my muse was encouraging...ok bugging the crap out of me LOL to Let Fly with whatever came to me...so I did. This picture has been floating around in my head since it was mentioned that the little sea gardens would make lovely fabric. Sometimes that is all it takes ..a little acorn of an idea. So here is where my head went. This piece is by far the largest drawing I have done for a bit..11" x 14". It is not completely inked yet and much of the small detail is incomplete also. But..what you can't see is that her feet are in the water and the bitsy critters and fish are flowing right off her dress into the pond...I do so love a bit of magic!
So my head is already here..in the Fall. A week back I was mourning the loss of summer..it was really short here as June was very cool. My pumpkin vines are a 1/4 of the size they were last year! I do have few bitsy tomatoes though and we managed a handful of raspberries..they were a surprise...love those!! So..as the new school year starts and I am interviewing prospective parents and kiddos..my head has already left the summer and is moving on. I do so love the Fall!
As I have said a bit of late...I will be 50 this October..and ya know I am really good with that. I loved turning 30 and I feel much the same about 50! I like the idea of being this age...I thank goodness that I am a bit smarter and wiser than I was at 30..is a blessing. So I am welcoming this too..along with the changing of the seasons!
Happy Friday the 13th..may it be a lucky day for you!!! I am not much for superstitions!!! It is Friday and this is a good thing!!
