Jutta and Heidi then took me to their Faire where they picked out a costume for me to wear and I beamed myself magically into their picture.
(Again, I drew, colored, cut and pasted myself, a la Jonathan Twingley, in the center of their Faire scene)
Collaborative drawing is a lot of fun and can be done between folks all over the world no matter where YOU are! If you want to draw with me send me your email address and we'll set up a time.
My next destination is Copenhagen, to meet up with yet another Sketchbook Skool friend. Or maybe I met her through the Every Day in June group. I don't remember now for sure.
Meanwhile, back in California, I make my usual weekly forays to Starbucks where I draw the people there!
I love giving them things to talk about ...
I don't know "George" but he is there regularly and has a whole group of friends and possibly family who meet him there as often as we go there. This day we got there early and he was waiting for his group to form. It did eventually.
This week held other adventures for us personally. My DH had to have some work done at the hospital and I spent my WAITING TIME drawing all the people in the waiting rooms with me. They changed out from time to time, as various patients were admitted into the surgery room, or doctors came out to tell families how their loved ones were doing.
I sat across from these folks while waiting to be let into the room pre-procedure to see my husband and talk to his cardiologist beforehand.
The doctor turned out to be a cool dude we both felt comfortable with. He told us what to expect.
It was going to be a long day.
This woman didn't have to wait long it seemed. The doctor came out to tell her something and she got up and left the room. Probably to go be with someone behind the big doors.
I continued to wait with these folks in the big room again.
Well we did NOT get to go home by noontime, or one or two o'clock either. They finally came and got me and let me go into the post op room. I guess they had cleared out a lot of patients, as my DH was almost the only one still there. They were waiting for his vitals to stabilize.
The nurses were really nice. I got some cranberry juice and some canned peaches to eat. I was so hungry by then anything was appreciated. Next time I will bring a picnic basket of food!
They made us wait until six thirty to be released. Then I had the fun of going to find my car in the parking garage and figuring out how to find my husband at the side of the hospital. I did it, but it was not easy.
Two tired people finally got to drive home.
It's nice this story has a happy ending! Color me RELIEVED!!! Drawing while waiting really helped too!
I continued to draw all week in Every Day in June:
This one was really fitting after my ordeal getting lost in the parking garage at the hospital. I know the floor and stall number, but they were not easy to find. Lots of walking later, I did! No one had stolen my car after all.
But I am terribly directionally challenged!
I stole the cover I had made for one of my Travel Art Journals from our trip to Europe last fall for the prompt "Transportation". I just drew the same things again, including us with back packs climbing the mountain! Now I think we will be able to do this again!
Here's to good health!
Wellness Wishes for all!
Have a creative week!
