Let's start my week with a contribution to Inktober prompt "Lost", also posted in "I Love Creative Lettering", showing, admitting to my being directionally challenged, which I am!
I love this quote! Because I've been guilty of doing the crying, but am getting better at enjoying the moment and trusting that there will be more moments ... And enjoying the other moments in between even if I find myself enjoying them by myself!
A very fun day full of moments, musical moments and moments full of drawing opportunities, happened last Saturday when we went to the annual El Cerrito Free Folk Festival.
This guy wound up sitting next to me when he got done performing on the open mike stage and he SAW THAT I WAS DRAWING HIM, yep, got caught in the act. Well, he loved it! He asked if he could photograph it! I gave him one of my new artist cards I told about in last week's post. He agreed to sign this drawing. It was an exciting moment for me. Then I drew the next guy singing and Shawn's woman friend said "It's awesome!" It's nice to get positive feedback about what we are doing in life.
Here's another story for you. I drew the lady in the yellow dress at one workshop, then wound up sitting next to her at the end of the day at the last singing event we went to, which happened to be Shawn again singing in a trio. Suddenly this women looking down at my feet exclaimed "My God, you have tiny feet!" I was a little taken aback as I'm not used to people exclaiming over the size of my feet.
Later, after we were walking back to our car there she was again staring at my feet. To tell you the truth her feet didn't look that much larger than mine. But I guess she found mine to be unique. (They are small, my husband calls them hooves!) tee hee.
I love this woman. I see her at all the music festivals we go to. She has the sweetest smile I've ever seen! Her eyes twinkle when she smiles. It's a joy to see. I enjoyed drawing her.
It was fun listening and learning about songs in Yiddish.
My dear late uncle Harry loved the Yiddish language, so of course I thought about him while listening to this music.
Some was in Ladino from Sephardic Judaism.
It was a great day full of great moments.
Hopefully we'll go again next year.
Then I continued my drawing in coffee cafes.
And I continue drawing for I Love Creative Lettering ...
And Inktober, prompt "Jump" ...
Drawn from Sktchy photo.
And I'm back to Sktchy site drawing portraits from photos and I used it for Inktober "Worried".
Sktchy and Inktober "Scared"
And for "I Love Creative Lettering".
And finally done today at Starbucks, two guys I've drawn numerous times before ...
... Two new guys talking in American Sign Language ... I wish I'd remembered more of what I'd learned a few years ago, not that I wanted to eves drop on their conversation, but it would have been fun to recognize some signs I'd learned.
And lastly, a lady in pink!
It was a good week full of good moments. I hope yours was too.
Now let's head out to another Creative week!
Happy Paint Party Friday
Thanks for stopping by and for your comments, as they keep me drawing!
