Speaking of happy, I am very happy to report that my computer has been brought back to life by the fine people at Power MacPac. While I stood waiting for the service guy to retrieve my beloved machine, I looked up to see several "Think Different" posters hung high near the ceiling. I know that those posters were produced in the late 1990's and they still look great...a fine testament of good design.
When I sketched this teapot..I confess I was chatting and not really paying proper attention to the subject. It was my little joke to myself to add a smiley face right just as I was "losing" it. (Well, face it, a smile makes everything look better, even a poorly drafted pot). This seems a perfect time to provide a link to my artist friend Annie Salness who had a stroke in 2010. It floors me that Annie can draw and paint so well with her non-dominant (left) hand! Perhaps I should take a chapter from Annie's book and draw the pot with my left hand...(but I know I wouldn't even get close.. I don't know how Annie does it!)
