A Dangerous Combination...

...for me, anyway! I know other artists that do quite well sketching and eating at the same time. Unfortunately, I can't say the same thing as this poor sketch proves:
Southwestern Soup
Ink and watercolor
5.5 x 5.5 inches
I would love to tell you it's a contour sketch, but it's not. It's just....sad.

This is what happens to me when I try to divide my attention between two masters—eating and sketching. You can easily tell who won this battle! All the same, I am happy to report that the green is spot on! I just purchased some new soup cups and that's really and truly their color—acid yellow-green!

Love that color!

Since tomorrow is Thanksgiving here in America, I would like to send to each of you a very grateful thanks for being a part of my life, the blogosphere and the Imaginary Realm. I can't imagine a world without you as you've touched my life and my heart in countless ways.

I hope you'll hug those around you that you're thankful for, smile at a stranger today as it may be the only kindness they will know this day, and tell those you love just how much you love them...this day, this hour, this moment, and take time to count the many blessings that fill your life.

Since I'll be putting down the paintbrush tomorrow (so as not to slaughter anymore unsuspecting food items), I will be picking up a pen to write a page of thanks—and you'll be at the top of my list!

Happy Thanksgiving!

  2. This is a memory sketch. So much of the time the pictures, and sketches, I make are substandard but I look at them and see the wonderful memories they evoke. They seem perfect seen through my memory.

  9. I love your quirky bowl! I can't divide my time well either but I bet quirks and all, you'll remember the whole scene when you look at this in the future.

    Happy Thanksgiving (late, sorry) to you too. I was so busy cooking I didn't have time for anything else but a few games and then caught a bug. Isn't that the way it happens when everyone gets together?! Ah well, we had a happy time and I hope your day went well too.
