She decided to knit herself a cocoon, to shelter herself from the harshness of life.
Cocoon is the Illustration Friday topic, so I am posting this digital image I have done of a French woman knitting, while she waits for a train.
On a totally non-related topic, I painted at the Blue Pig Gallery yesterday with Travis Jardon's guidance. He is a wonderful landscape painter, and landscape is a real weakness for me. Below is the first painting I did. The second one we just began, as he is showing the method he uses for layered painting, which is something I really want to learn, as I paint everything pretty much alla prima. But, obviously, we will not finish it until the first layer dries. It did inspire me to try more landscapes, although I doubt that I will ever become a 'Landscape Painter.'
