Jordan is in town




It's always nice to see Jordan although she is a waif of a being. She encompasses beauty and effort both. I stepped out of norm again and brought earthtone chalks with me to session. Noticed them in storage last night when looking for brayer for inking plates to print. Didn't find the brayer, but thought these would refresh and hone some skill while teaching perspective in Saturday's Art Smart class by adding some color to our buildings imagined. The colors were a bit dark, but I felt sucessful, although my CD player went on the fritz this evening and part of the evening we listened to classical opera via radio. There were chuckles and friendship going on with that! Somehow it accepted Celtic Women, A New Journey and then fritzed again, as if it was going to choose the evenings music. Must be that full moon eclipse going on.

I did a double take at the drawings.. the earthtones threw me off.. It's good to shake up the troops Doris!

Glad to see you experimenting and pushing your creative limits. Earthtones can be muddy but you've added such a wonderful glow to them. I hope to maybe make that next life drawing class at Tall Grass. It's been many years such I've done life drawing, but maybe it's time to push myself as well. Jordan may be a waif, but your creative perception invokes much health and vitality into her. Great work, as always!

Your colors are beautiful; the highlights and the shadows. And the aura around her adding a little mystery with this full moon week.
