Here we are again with only two months and nine more pictures to go for the year!
I think we all enjoyed doing this one. Rose did a lovely inky sketch and poem with words coming from an obvious enjoyment of drawing with ink. I did my latest yummy ink, called Yama-Budo from Pilot Iroshizuku, and Bev did a beautiful tattoo. More amazement from all at our varied interpretations.
Who doesn’t love a radio? I grew up in a house where the radio was on softly all the time. It was great, a great background to life. Rose has a similar vibe going on with an old radio, the style of which she remembers, ouch! And Bev did a car radio from an old car of hers. My radio was taken from a newer radio made to look retro, but I blobbed my own decoration on.
I still have the radio on most days, only it’s tuned to jazz…jazz baby, the only way to go.
More strange and glorious interpretations. Rose did a sitar atop a photo of a local performer who had “buttery sounds.” Bev did yummy movie theatre popcorn, which reminds me of Saturday afternoons at the Odeon theatre I went to as a child, and I did an antique wooden butter mold.
Rose did a swishy dragonfly for this one, and I did a polymer clay pin. Bev did a “lubber” which is what some grasshoppers are called. I went to my big book on insects and see “lubber” all over the place in identification, and yet it never sunk in until Bev told me about this one. Isn’t that wonderful how a sketching project can teach you, can lead to awareness of things that have passed you by?
It’s a big, old, interesting world.
See you next month for various interpretations of Nutcracker, Chickasaw, Periscope, Quay and Cubism.
