Savor the Moment
This is just to say…buy some plums (or tomatoes, corn, or apples). Paint them. Eat them. And savor the moment.
Tips & Techniques- I realize that several of these plums look more like purple potatoes than plums, and you may have artwork that doesn’t quite turn out as you would like, too. One way to “save it” is with text that captures something of your experience. Another is to try again (this is my second attempt—my first had better plums but a less interesting layout). Another is to turn the page and be glad that you took the time to practice.
Eat, drink, sketch Life. Heart of poet.
… a poet 🙂 Shitty typer.
Deliciously beautiful, and very purple!
I know how much you love that color!
Love the plums & the layout & the poem = everything on these pages …
Thanks Sigrun! Appreciate it!
Now if I can just try to follow it myself!
Sketch – paint – eat – that’s got to be the perfect life…. I love your sketch, it’s beautiful and inspirational….
Thanks Evelyn! If only more days were filled that way!
sorry, I disagree. LOVE your plums! (and your lettering!)
Thank you! I was happier with the shadows than the plums, but it was good to experiment. I didn’t want to fuss too much, so in that sense, this was a success.
The perfect card n note.
Thanks…The phrase “This is just to say…” is a good one.
Great post! 😊
Thanks! Glad you liked it.
Ha, you are right but I didn’t notice until you pointed that out. I was looking at your beautiful handwriting and laughing about your note.
I love your commentary – so honest, and comfortable, if that makes sense. And this piece is full of charm and good feelings.
Thanks Lynn…I appreciate your regular comments!
