Now that I've sort of recovered from Christmas, my thoughts have been multiplying and colliding in the anteroom to 2007. I've got so many ideas about what I want to do with my art next year, and my life, too. I'll be posting about all of that on Sunday. In the meantime, I've made a few sketches and here they are. First, a giant whirligig on the grounds at Fearrington.
Then, a Kaimeri brush penned sketch of a tree bedecked with twiggy globes, also at Fearrington. I guess they're a cliché now, but I still love to see those lacy orbs all lit up against the night sky. Or bare and black, as here, in the late afternoon.
Yesterday, I asked our son L (I've been so lucky to have been his stepmother since he was 10) to sit for a sketch and he did. He's one of the wittiest and nicest people I've ever known. And patient, too, like his father.
On Saturday, I'll post the last drawings of this year and will review and assess my 2006 Art Plan, before embarking on another. See you then!
