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!
