And this was kind of unique. It's a picture of a sewer along the curbing with a tennis shoe stuck in it. I was going to draw it and started on it. But as a drawing it was hard to tell exactly what it was and it just didn't make sense.
I have some other pictures from that area but I don't like any of them enough to draw. I think between the smell and and loss there's just nothing to get too excited over.
I am working on another drawing though, again it's different than a portrait. So I'll be posting an update soon. I'm not sure how it's going to turn out yet, but I'm liking it so far ;)

The idea behind it is breaking free from old patterns and exploring bigger and better things. Not being held prisoner to the past and finding your light. That's the idea behind it anyway. Now finding a reference photo for it was my challenge. Because we all know I have to have a reference photo. I'm not one to just sit down and draw a hand, I have to see it in front of me. That's something else I have to work on I guess.
The creative thought was there, I could see the picture in my mind. All I needed was handcuffs and 2 guys ( I know it sounds pretty kinky). So in comes my family, the handcuffs were easy. I called my daughter and asked if she had any. Well, she had a set but they were pink and furry. She knew someone who had some I could borrow though. Now the hard part, convincing my husband and son to be hand models, one of them had to put the cuffs on, but only on one wrist. There was no doubt that Ed was going to be "God". My son reluctantly gave in out of respect for his dad ;) This was decided after an hour or two of convincing them to even pose for it. They both decide they would knowing I wasn't going to leave them alone and they both like the fact I cook for them. The universe of course had to be just out of my head.
So, that's the story behind this ;) It's 12" X 12" on black art paper.
I'm open for suggestions on the title.

I've reached a goal too, I'm in a size 8 :) Who needs "the biggest loser"? I did it all by myself with no gyms or coaches. I'm not finished yet, actually I'm kind of getting into working out, it's tough getting started but once I'm into it, it feels good. Nothing like a sweaty body. I still haven't mastered "Chicometrics" though, oh my gosh that's tough. Chico and I have a love hate relationship.
I've also started "The Master Key System". So far that seems interesting. I love things like that. And the artwork is still coming along well. There's changes to come along there too.
