Our modern technology is great for us, but not always so great for the next guy!
I love making up conversations for the people I am drawing when I am out and about!
I mean really! Doesn't she LOOK like Annie?
These two women were obviously busy and not with each other so were enjoying a quiet moment!
This answers to the Prompt in Every Day in October: "Children's Literature". I love this book I found for free at the folk festival last week. It's all about Yiddish, stories set in Chelm using Yiddish words with explanations. My late uncle Harry LOVED the Yiddish Language and would have loved this book. Unfortunately, I found it the week after he died. I was able, however, to read it to one of my grand daughters. The family tradition continues!
We sat outside at Bernardo's in Davis, CA for lunch. It was a bit breezy and peoples napkins were blowing away all over the place! My husband, being the nice guy he is, was getting up and picking them up and throwing them away!
Boy, it was busy at Starbucks on Saturday! I could have drawn line after line like this. I thought it would never end! A good thing for an artist at work!
Sometimes, I get inside peoples heads and "read" their thoughts!
Another prompt for EDiOctober: "Beached" I copied this off of a drawing done recently by Tommy Kane, one of my favorite teachers in Sketchbook Skool. He always gave us permission "to steal", so I felt okay stealing from him. He saw this on Facebook and left me a comment saying: "Damn good!"
Boy, did that ever make MY DAY!
As a marriage, family therapist I have actually had couples in trouble for this very problem. So it's no wonder it has finally shown up in my art! (I do NOT KNOW these people).
These young kids were oh so laid back! I am sure this is the way they were talking even though I couldn't hear them from my spot clear across the room!
Sometimes friendships are difficult! Modern technology doesn't exactly help either!
I figured she was doing some online shopping. When I posted it on Facebook there was all sorts of speculation as to what she was buying. Feel free to put your 2 cents worth into the conversation!
"Polaroid" was another prompt for EDiOctober. So I drew Mr. Land and his camera upgrade in '72.
Often times people come and go so quickly that I give first arrive-ers' new friends, even after they have left the territory!
See what I mean? Again, friendships are being given the short end of the stick to someone's
Virtual Reality Life!
And once again I draw half of a couple (woman in white) while she waited for her guy to come out of the restroom. I had hoped to draw him and his long ponytail too, but they left immediately! Just grabbed their drinks and split the scene. So instead, I drew the gal in pink in a different part of the room. Why do women think it's okay to have their underwear showing under their shirts now? Am I just being OLD fashioned?
The prompt for today, Oct 7, was "Frida Kahlo". I drew two new ones. I have five I think all together now. Maybe I'll add a collage of them.
The one above is from her painting called "Roots" 1943. I loved the bright colors and imagery.
This is copied from her "Self Portrait With Monkey" 1945
It was fun doing it with black ink and black marker.
I enjoy drawing from one of the books I have of her art
called Frida Kahlo The Paintings Hayden Herrera 1991
