A prompt for U in Everyday in September was Uni. Of course Freda's Unibrow came into my mind immediately! This is maybe my 3rd time drawing her. Such an inspirational artist!
Last Saturday we went to the Free Folk Festival in El Cerrito, CA where we listened to musicians all day long ...
We listened and I drew as many of them as I could for 4 and half hours: total: 30!
2 braids, one long, one short
We knew some of the folks there going back to the 1970's when we first started going to folk festivals in the Bay Area. My husband sang a solo in the "Out of Harmony's Way" group in the afternoon, and he got his usual response: Amazement! And lots of YIPS!~
It was fun watching clothing too. There was floral and Tie-dyed, silks and linens, music note prints on socks and guitar printed shirts!
The age range was mostly older folks like ourselves, those old 1970's hippie types, but a few young people too. We sure hope this genre of music does not die out with our generation!
Afterwards, we went to my daughter's home for dinner. It's always fun being with our kids and grandkids!
I'm trying out some new art supplies here: A toned art journal, and "Generals" pastel pencils. I'm enjoying using them.
Here they are again, but on white paper!
The last prompt for Every Day in September was "The end of September, the road, of life as we know it ... be creative." I was going to make a collage of all the drawings I did for that challenge in September, but my computer program brought up all the art I've done since I started Sketchbook Skool in 2014 (April). It about knocked my socks off seeing how much I had drawn in all that time in one place!
And now we begin Every Day in October. The first prompt is "Pink Ribbon (for Breast Cancer Awareness Month)". We are to be creative. So I drew my best friend from childhood, Patty, who died from cancer two years ago (July). My tribute to my greatly missed best friend. I love you Patty.
I wish you a Creative Week! Enjoy whatever form that takes for you!
I finished another book. I read Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand. I am learning a lot about WWII, this time in the Pacific. It's a heavy read, but I couldn't put it down.
Thanks for coming by and for your comments that inspire me to keep drawing! I appreciate them so much.
