Starting Anna’s book
I’m keeping true to my word and showing a preview of page 1, which is far from completion. Monday afternoon I finally sat down and started sketching in Anna’s book. Many months have passed since it’s arrival to Oregon. Several subject matters to tie into her ‘Circle of Life’ have come and gone. I actually started on a different idea today and erased it. Currently, we have brightly blooming cactus in numerous rooms of our home. The oldest of the plants I received almost 36 years ago from my brother Tom. The plant was gifted to me inside a white bag that my brother had added several colored pencil drawings to the outside. I probably still have his drawings somewhere. Now it’s my turn to do a little sketching to pass it’s history along. So far, I’m just getting a rough idea of what I want to do (placement and size). Colored pencil work to come Tuesday.
I’ve also started sketching the full page spread (as seen below). This is it’s second reincarnation already, which might actually stick this time. There will be another flower view. Or leaves. Or something. Time will tell.
Amazing what can finally be done when push comes to shove. Deadlines are a good thing in this household.
And yes, I’ll post Tuesday’s work as it comes together.
