Ok, back to lamps. This jewel is a floor lamp which stands about 5’8″ tall. I only drew the top half of it since I started it too big and the paper wasn’t long enough. The base of it has a CHERUB holding it up. It’s all painted gold and ivory and looks like it belongs in the Sun King’s court at Versailles. Or a funeral parlor. Or a New Orleans brothel. And actually it came to me via my brother’s son-in-law who was working in a nursing home. I think they were redecorating and decided to chuck the baroque lamp. My sister-in-law didn’t want it in her house because she has more sense than I do. But I am attracted to weird, funky things whether or not I have room for them or they look good in my house. (No offense, honey.)
This lamp lives in our dining room by a window and next to the rattan drinks cart which is chock full of bottles and a plant. And no, I’m NOT a HOARDER. A few people have mentioned those shows to me. Just in passing. I’m trying to be more selective about things I bring home these days, I swear.
Anyway, once I draw the cherub base I’ll post it. You are going to want it.
Did you draw that today? Its as fun to read the post as seeing the art!
No, it was probably a year ago or more but I came across the sketch rolled up on a shelf a few days ago and figured I should scan it and post it. Thanks!
Wow, this is utterly great! That lamp just goes on and on. Nice detail.
Thanks Adam! Thanks for taking time to peruse my site.
