Art du Jour 68

image
This is what happens when you take a photo in low light at the end of the day and your pencils cast shadows on the white page. As if you would ever wonder about that. Just saying, now you don’t have to.

This morning I went grocery shopping. On my return, I immediately made myself a very creamy cup of coffee with my stockpile of coffee cream.  Running out of cream was more brutal than anticipated.  This is how you learn how addicted you are to something.  Shopping before coffee sure speeds up the process but doesn’t necessarily make it pleasant.

The day turned out to be very hot and I turned out to be very lethargic. But it finally cooled off enough for me to draw something once the light was more or less useless for art.

Considering how little time I spent on this, I’m very happy with it.  My mind might change with the daylight.

This is the start of Canada Day long weekend!   Flags are flying.  Hope you have a good one.

My Baby Face

Long ago my mother had a camera without a flash.  She was always moving people into the bright sunshine to snap a picture.  There is nothing on my brothers face here except a big dollop of extremely bright light.  Some spots are over exposed and some are left in the shadows.

Mom always told me I was a very content and happy baby.  I liked to eat and sleep and laugh.  Not much has changed, really. But this picture is proof that even the happiest baby can raise a little hell.  Man, what a face.
