Years ago, my mom gave me a little black drawing book. I think it’s about 5″ x 5″ filled with a wonderful black card-like paper just perfect for soft pastels. I’ve returned to swiping the luscious colors around on these pages and thought I’d share a few. These two are from Piano lessons. Not my lessons, but Maddie’s. Every week I get to sit out in their “outdoor room”…a wonderful open space so comfortable for sitting and viewing their backyard. So while Maddie plays piano and learns from Ms. Randi…I get to draw and paint! Come to think of it…I’ve made a good many drawings from this little outdoor space, here and here and here! Perhaps I shall make copies to put in a little book to give to them.
I’ll share some of the other drawings in my little black book soon. Several of them are of “My Field”. I may be pairing them with poems I’ve written, both recent and from a couple of years ago. I have a serious backlog of stuff I want to share with you, so please do come back and visit soon! I just love it when you do!
