Sketchy thoughts...

I did not actually think I could feel worse than I felt yesterday, but I was wrong. I am trying to do more than just lie around, though, so am doing little things. I printed out the entry form for the Enchanted Pathways exhibit, and filled all out except title and size of the piece, as it is not only not yet woven, but not yet conceived! Must get to that soon, I guess.

I'm posting this little sketch I did of my grand-daughter watching Sesame Street the other day. I am keeping the sketches in the new sketchbook intentionally simple. I like this one because, though it is very simply executed, I did capture her pose, so could use that for a painting or tapestry later on. I didn't have time to get the camera, so am pretty proud of my attempt to catch her relaxed concentration quickly, before she moved. (I added the color and the SS logo in PhotoShop.)

I am going to look over my images from Maine to see if I can get inspired for something for the small tapestry exhibit. I hate to send it in 'Untitled'!
