 you never know were   blog hopping will take you.

 i read this blog, tall tales from kansas







which led me to lisa hoffman.  the two friends got together and 

 drew pictures of each in their journals.  






well, lisa mentioned emily sebald.  emily is a swedish singer, artist 

and gallery owner in new york.  of course i then i got distracted with 

thoughts of  being a young swedish up and coming artist.  getting back to 

the blog hopping adventure,  one of her emily's images with  bring red 

in the background stood out cuz i rarely,

well, come to think of it...i have never done a red background.






so  when i met my friend lorraine at the french  market cafe in venice

to journal and also  get into the mood for my upcoming trip

to france.  we decided to do blind contour drawings of 

each other and then color them in.  






my pot of red acrylic was dried out so i used inktense color block crayons

and came as close as i could and just had fun!




linking with the gang  paint party friday
thanks to eva and kristin for the weekly gathering
and paintings #3 and 4 of 29 faces
