calligraphy, desert landscapes, odd animal portraits

May 17-23, 2021

week 3, Santa Rosa, CA

Here I am in bed in the guest room at mimi’s house, resting and drawing; or walker-ing to the bathroom, or the breakfast room, to the couch to watch movies, or out to the garden. Mimi likes to take care of us–and Art gets a break from running up and down the house bringing me things.

Did I mention I got x-rays? oy.

We are the Wholeness. Love, Beauty, Creativity.

CoQ10, Vitamin C, homeopathy.

I asked Mimi for some toys to draw, so she put them all over my bed. I drew the Japanese porcelain cat, the longy-leggy doll, and the bendy frog with Derwent watercolor pencils, in the messy, wrinkly, spiral bound sketchbook. So fun to draw in..

My Instructor KW suggested the Brementown Stuffies should play instruments, so I drew up Alliger pretending to trumpet like a cartoon elephant, and added watercolor, brush pen, white signo pen.

Kids books have alligators.

Here are some Richard Scarry illustrations from, I think, 1951?

Books and toys from Mimi’s collection, except for Aliger, from my imagination.
