The charm bracelet painting I am working on is not coming along swimmingly. So in the meantime here is a charcoal drawing of Stardust–the best cat in the world–who belongs to Jill next door. Sweet, sweet kitty. She lets us pretend that she’s our kitty too. And we let her pretend that she owns our yard, the back porch, the bird feeders and all the birds.
I had this postcard (top) of Marc Chagall’s “Homage to Gogol”, which I used as an idea for a birthday card for Spencer. Chagall’s art has a strange, dreamlike quality to it, often with floating, sinuous figures. How did he come up with this stuff? Anyway, I thought I’d try my own version of it. He used gouache and pencil on paper. Mine is collage and watercolor, pencil and pen on paper. This was a fun little project and wacky enough to suit Spence. He says that’s just what he looks like walking to classes.
