Stopping by to say hello —
we’ve had lots of rain here lately,
but today brought such lovely sunshine and
happily a chance to work in the garden among the flowers.
Hope you have sunshine or rain, whichever you need.
(still doodling with my Copic markers — wait till you see what’s up!)
Just a little doodling to play with my Copic markers.
Last week, during our family Thanksgiving celebration, a friend in Germany emailed me some surprising news. He’d been involved in my painting years there and wanted to alert me. An old 1981 exhibition catalog from a group art show called “American Artists in Berlin” (Amerikanische Künstler in Berlin) was being auctioned on eBay. That show had featured 6 young American artists then living in Berlin, including Lynn Bowers, Jimmy Clark, Gary Rieveschl, John Schuetz, Christina Viera, and me. In the eBay bidding window was a two-page spread from the catalog, showing Jimmy Clark’s pottery and one of my paintings (both a bit cut off).
A come-as-you-are “self-portrait in a bathroom mirror” photo, complete with bad lighting and bad focus, to mark 60+ days till my 66th birthday. (At least I’m IN the photo, which was no easy task.)
Passports are fun reminders of where we’ve been. In one old passport, I’m pictured with a tired and none-too-happy infant in my arms on my way to live in Germany. This is my passport photo from my early 30’s, when I was on my way to live in the Middle East with three little kids.
