Art too big for my scanner, so I threw it on the floor and snapped a photo to show you where I am going with the colored pencil work for the top of the red flag. (Yes, I should have waited to photograph this outside in daylight as my camera’s flash kind of washed it out and did a number on the color.) I’m not sure if I’m going to use it… quite frankly, I was at a bit of a loss staring at a big blank 9×12 sheet of Bristol, not sure of what to draw.
Part of me thinks that I should have stopped sooner… or walked away at different times. Oh, I can tell what areas were done on different days or in different moods. I purposely stopped drawing on a day when a visitor to our communal yard crossed the line from tipsy chess player to obnoxious drunk vulgarly ranting objections to the “watch the language around small children” rule as the mounting tension was entering the art. Can you tell where?
Since this is photo day, here’s a couple more… snapped these the other day when photographing the mayor’s rock. This is the “Our Lady of the Garden” finally outdoors after being moved three times. Right now, she is more of a Lady in Waiting as the roots planted show no signs of life. Some of the seeds have sprouted bits of green. We may not have flowers until Labor Day. Oh well… next year, we’ll seed early.
She’s in the narrow side yard. The window next to her is the same type and size as the window that will get the stained glass on the other side of the building come this winter. I hate those black cable cords snaking around all over everywhere… if this wasn’t a rental property, I’d rip them all down.
In case you are wondering about the chalk scribbles, they use the brick wall as a score board for Ringers, a game played like horseshoes only they toss 3″ metal washers at cut sections of plastic drain pipes stuck in the earth.
Well, thanks for viewing my art & photos! And if you are a daddy viewing this on Sunday, Happy Father’s Day!
