Except there's no SCENE yet... everything is in transitional or embryonic phase. It's like the new moon around here... you can't see it yet, but it's there.
Under these conditions, a couple of peeks at my journal can provide evidence of continued life on my planet.
I'm still having lots of fun with the Koh-i-noor magical pencils. I've expanded my holdings to include all of the colorways the Magic Pencils come in, as well as the entire range of their triangular Tri-tone pencils, shipped all the way from Poland! (Gulp, why did I not notice the shipping charges when I ordered them!! Do NOT try this at home. Still, in a couple of years, I'm *sure* I'll forget the pain.)
Getting into the swing of things for my fall show on a floral/plant/garden theme, I'm pulling out all my supplies and trying everything to see what feels right. The Koh-i-noor Tri-tone pencils worked pretty well on an acrylic-painted journal page!
And finally, another pencil piece... a quick sketch of our dear friend Neil, made with a Koh-i-noor Progresso pencil (and maybe a white conté pencil, too... can't remember what I used) on toned paper.
I'm leaving for Italy two weeks from today, on a several days' birthday trip for my wonderful husband, to stay with dear friends in the Veneto. More about that very soon. But before then, will be working, working, working in the studio to get things accomplished for my show! Wish me luck, if you please!
