Whee, we finally made it, or rather I finally made it, I was so far behind.
There’s nothing like a good architectural sketch, so I enjoyed all these. The salient memory for me is that I got to try out the new Noodler’s Blue Upon the Plains of Abraham ink in my Lamy Safari pen with the medium nib—I love that pen. Rose did two sketches for this week.
The thing about abstracts is that they are way more complicated and hard to arrange than one might think. The one Rose showed was a previous piece of art in a frame her late husband made; I thought this was special for that reason.
For this one Rose used a quote from Sylvia Plath’s book The Bell Jar, and I loved the detail in Bev’s of the incense burning in the background.
I loved sketching my rice milk box on a card table out on the lawn, and Rose was thinking out of the box, and Bev was rescuing kittens abandoned in cardboard.
Bev told me when she sent her picture that she had almost done a hermit crab but thought she should challenge herself more. Rose and I went with what we like to draw, hermit crabs!
So, that’s the wrap-up for this month. It seemed to fly by.
