It’s Saturday night and I’m going to watch a movie with Steven. We went
to Sam Smith park by the lake today, and I took so many photos -- possible photo
reference for beautiful paintings in the coming months. It was a grey sky cloudy
day, but that seemed to make the vibrant coloured trees stand out even more.
It was so gorgeous, and I had to stop about 100 times on our walk to try
and grab a photo of another amazing scene.
This drawing like the one I showed you a few days ago was based on a beautiful
black-and-white photo by my father. I was really happy with the result. And I
love how it captures that total joy we sometimes feel as children.
So I’m showing it to you tonight because it stands out in my mind as one of the
drawings I’ve done that I really enjoyed both making, and then afterwords
looking at going "wow!" Do you do that? Do you talk to yourself, and when
you’ve made something you really like do you go "hey kid not bad!"
I feel lucky to be an artist, and I thank you so much for your support
and kindness. You really do make my day.
