My son, Joe, drew these. The three directly above this text, he drew when he was in high school. When I think of him during those years, I see him hunched over his drawing table, absorbed in his work. I guess you can see why. (Remember, you can click on the drawings to get a better viewing). He’s created and drawn his own characters for … Continue reading joerhoney.com
I’ve been writing this blog – ziggyseamstress – since December 2009 (off and on, anyway) but really got started in March of 2011 and as best I can remember, I’ve only written one post that included anything at all about sewing – Dom’s ‘rainbow dress’ in the ‘Family Time in the Wild Olde West’ post. So here’s a little something about sewing. Since I’ve been … Continue reading Suede Lampshade
FrankenFoot! It’s kinda hard to get a good picture of it. Just can’t get at the right angle. But suffice it to say my foot is the approximate shape of a brick….. with toes. BUT!!! I have a project, so I’m happy. I’m making piñatas for a Halloween party Mike’s school is throwing for the kids. So I’ve got all the supplies on … Continue reading Just in time for Halloween…..
Okay, now I’m addicted. I scrounged up a piece of plywood, painted it with some paint I’ve had around forever (it’s nice to finally use it up) et voilà, art for my own back yard! I suppose I’d’ve been smarter to hang it on the fence using something more tasteful than a couple of big ol’ screws, but I … Continue reading Addicted
So, in the mean time, I actually did do something. I finished the aubergine panel. I’m not super happy with it and I can’t really quite figure out why. I mean, it’s not horrible, but it’s just not what I was looking for, I guess. I think I keep comparing it with the original drawing I did which I really like. What do you think … Continue reading Aubergine
I’ve got to be honest – I’ve been a little moody and down lately. My art project seems to have come to a grinding halt. Still no dark green panels to paint on and I’ve sort of lost my steam, my enthusiasm for the project. I think I may have a case of Post-Artum Depression. Have I come up with a new phrase? I don’t … Continue reading Post-Artum Depression
Here she is – the “Great Big Fat Garlic Bulb”. All done. Now I’m just waiting for Mike to finish painting the last two panels the darker green and bring them to me so I can get started on my aubergine panel and….hhhmmm….haven’t quite decided what the last panel will be…. Miiiiikkkeeeeeeeeeeyyyy! Continue reading Garlic Bulb – Check
You remember Helpful Tip #1, right? – Use sticky notes while painting to remind yourself where NOT to paint. Now here’s Helpful Tip #2 – While painting, don’t have your paint pot and your cup of tea sitting right next to each other. Yeah, not a good idea…… Continue reading Helpful Tip #2
C’mon, c’mon, c’mon……get dark! I don’t know if I’ve ever been more anxious for night to fall as I was last night. Not even as a kid waiting for fireworks on the 4th of July. Yesterday afternoon I finally got together with Mike in regard to the garlic bulb panel. He’d said he wanted the little roots showing at the bottom of the bulb. In … Continue reading Garlic Bulb….A big fat one!
Yes, not much action the past few days. One ~ I’ve been struggling a bit with the drawing of the garlic bulb that Mike wants. He wants a “great big fat one” with the roots at the bottom. Being that the panels are square and the entire garlic plant is long and skinny, I’m just drawing the bottom bulb part. I’ve tried drawing the roots … Continue reading A delay in the action..
