Lisa Wilson left a comment on my posting of a few days ago referring to a children’s book by Peter Reynolds entitled, Ish (sorry…I have no link to Lisa as she didn’t leave one). Upon Googling Ish, it turns out the book can be read online, or rather, it’s read to YOU online! I won’t give the plot away, I’ll just say it’s a story encouraging creativity and to not allow criticism–from others or self–to get in our way. So here’s the link to read Ish and I hope you enjoy it, too.
Thanks, Lisa, for reminding me of Peter and the reference to his book, Ish!
Men & Mules—Done!
I finished the piece that included the men and mules so thought I’d post it along with the rough…and maybe a close-up.
Close-up of mules:
I’m satisfied with the results, however there’s something about the roughs I do that I find more interesting than the actual final pieces. It’s a fine line to keep a piece looking and feeling fresh and not overworking it in some respect. Hard to explain but I think y’all know what I’m saying.
