Yesterday, I spent the better part of the morning having a love affair with my new tripod (now, now, don’t even picture those dirty things!). Truly, I am having so much fun. To prepare for tomorrow’s class, I made a new felt hut and documented as I went. A total first stab at a still-life tutorial — here. It runs just shy of a minute, so I hope you can take a peek. Criticism welcome.
Meanwhile, the moon has been peeking in my window. This is roughly the view from my bed. Aspidistra and beech limbs talking in lines while the moon makes an illuminated beauty spot, a little like Peppy Miller, and her “little something extra”, in the movie ‘The Artist’.
Digging up and documenting and noodling. Part of my gift to C. for his quickly approaching 18th birthday, is a collection of journal entries about him (I am already way behind schedule!) The picture below goes back much further, however, to a batch of illustrations created for book of poems written as a freshman in college (1975). I’ll spare you the poetry.
