The joy of human interaction with nature is the idea behind the project I've been working on for some time. The visual narrative, sketched out almost a year ago then brewed on the back burner, is now pushing itself into bloom. I'm working full steam ahead on developed drawings and some color sketches, like this one.
"Pages 6 & 7" is about 4 x 10 inches.
Going to school can be a big job, so sometimes you need big tools! The whimsy of this image attracted me. Believe it or not, this pencil is a real object in our house. It was made by a 9th grade student several years ago in my art class, then graciously gifted to me. (Thank you, Dara!) The amount of fun this object brings is a gift that just keeps on giving.
"Big Pencil" is 5 x 5 inches.
I met this Zinnia along the Pennypack Trail yesterday morning. The sun was shining and I was getting some long awaited exercise while the kids were at their first day of school. I love zinnias...especially this time of year when they are one of the most colorful flowers left blossoming.
