This morning when I started my Mac I was greeted by a blue screen. Nothing chills a Mac owner more than the blue screen. Well, good news, the smart people at the "hospital" believe she'll be all right and I'll get her back tomorrow. (All the machines I love are inexplicably female to me). I am writing from a borrowed computer (one I have no particular affection for, so it is genderless). For today's post, in honor of "blue" I'm reposting an entry from 2009 .............about a blue sketch.
It is raining today. I still had a pile of blue on my palette from the last time I painted and I had an idea for a "waiting in the rain" image--I just dashed it out as a rough idea. I didn't really intend for it to look so completely despondent...but sometimes things happen that I almost don't have any control over. In the end it reminded me of a Edward Gorey illustration...just not as whimsical. The umbrella looks like a bat and the blue with no relief (like another color) certainly looks ... lonely! I doubt that I'll take the idea any further..but there is no denying that it is interesting.... just as it is!
