I’ve taken a few nights off of the painting to hang out with friends. But in the meantime, by popular demand, here is a picture of the Sterling Allen drawing referenced earlier. I’d never seen a drawing of his on this blue paper before, and I love it. And the subject matter makes me giggle every time I look at it. So thanks Sterling, and sorry for the unprofessional, poorly cropped photo.
That blue paper and this Eileen Maxson photograph (which I need to frame) are the inspirations for my color palette – blues, turqoises and oranges. (another apology to Eileen for the quality of the photograph of her photograph)
Luckily, I have lots of stuff that already fits into the color scheme. Like these orange coasters, these glasses, and lots of California pottery.
I have got to start taking better photos. Photography was my minor, after all.
