on a blue background.
How have I put white into this tiny piece?
Let's see: the birds are transferred
typo film. The mosaic pattern is tiny
Oh yeah; I cut through the blue background
to make the strigil designs up top.
A little colored pencil colors the top bird and triangle below him.
About 6 x 4.5 inches.

carries a lot of color
I just turned it into a landscape
by adding a sun-ball and leaves.
He is content with his roll across the sky.
Acrylic and pencil on collaged
scans of antique tile.
Typo film for bright lettering.

ALL STAGE SOUNDS
have stopped unexpectedly
Brunhilde storms out of rehearsal!
Who will replace the diva? Who? WHO? WHOOOOO?
ILLUSTRATION FRIDAY's word is "SILENT."
Drew this today....in Painter 12.
Remember : EGOMANIACS are easier to draw when they've huffed off-stage!

this week's word is 'stripes.'
She could not change her spots, and had been assured
by her friends (principally the zebra and bumblebee) that all males
"Doesn't it make me look, err, heavy?"
The bee and zebra eyed each other's forms.
The buzzing friend's eyes were inscrutable,
but the zebra spat out a large mouthful of grass

Yves and Alan
have a great garden.
There are all sorts of well-loved
and well-placed plants
in the deep, long lot.
Even water lilies!
We strolled over with our cocktails to join them there.
Alan had suspended scores (!) of tiny votive lamps
among the shadows. Bewitching!
Some final sunbeams on the glossy leaves
were easily confused with the tiny flames.
Mike the sproodle guards the beaujolaise.

of the neat options in Painter
is a 'mirror' drawing tool.
The face structure
radiating leaves are drawn with it.
You can position an axis point
(or multiple points!)
in the composition and rotate its angle.
I dragged it off the picture
to finish the lettering, etc.

is the word of the week from
'Drew this, this morning in Painter
'cause I'm on vacation.
Pinata Spiders are great:
you can play with them or eat them.
But I think little bunny boy
was hoping for candy corn.

This guy was a quick doodle attached to a note.

The week's word is
Anything that is tagged with that derogatory moniker
usually flies and is new-fangled.
But if you're a kid in your yard in
your best bet to fly is a cardboard box.
The colander helmet: optional.
