As I recall, I was either calling this drawing, “Embracing My Inner Kitten” or “Portrait of the Artist as a Kitten”. Anyway, it is a drawing of a kitten. In a window. Here’s a work in progress:
It seems as if I was doing this back in the dark ages of my soul. Okay, no dark ages,really, I just liked the sound of it. I understand the drawing is a bit confusing, I’ll explain the idea at the end. Of course, I know where the kitten is, not sure if the viewer can. And that’s how it should be.
The dark ages? My off-the-web life has been busy. I started a new job, and I went to a women’s gathering in Kansas. I’m back now, and back to work.
Okay, I confess. I’m not the most tech savvy person there is. There was a time a long time ago, when I was ahead of the curve. Now, I’m panting, huffing puffing, trying to keep up with the pack.
Smartphones are a blessing and a curse.
Having moved out of my old abode, the camera I have on my smartphone is all I’ve got. And my laptop. So, how does a person take beautiful, accurate pictures of her artwork, when she doesn’t have a clue?
I practice. And I try. And I beg your (the reader) forgiveness in the meantime. Like all the old TV networks used to say “We are experiencing technical difficulties. Please stay tuned”.
So, I’m trying to give you a pic of the sketch of “Embracing My Inner Kitten”. This is the best I can do for now.
Here’s the aceo of my new work “Sentinel”. It’s based on the view out the staff cafeteria at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, which is where I work.
