Oh My Gosh Is He Just To Cute!
He came so easy to sketch, as I have mentioned many times my characters come from people I may know! He is no exception! When I was way little, there was a boy named Bobby, (fictitious name to protect the innocent) “I have always wanted to say that.” He was scruffy, smart and wore glasses and oh sooo cute! I had a little crush on this guy; unfortunately one did not share in those days. Then again I was only 8 years old! We made mud pies, collected worms; the worst was when we dug up all the vegetable in his parent’s garden to make a pretend vegetable soup! That did not go over well, but we survived it. Eventually he moved away. Remembering those warm hot summers, when you needed to be in when the street lights came on, building forts in the woods, smell of fresh cut grass, windows were flung open (most of us did not have air condoning), barbeques and swimming pools. Summers were simpler then, sharing adventures with friends and many of those friends stayed in my heart forever!
I have many scraps of paper with all different shades of hues that I have made. Loving the color on my grandmother’s teacup, I got busy trying to recreate it. Searching my scrap draw like a squirrel burying in nuts in the ground for winter, pulling out a few here and there, I read my paint recipes as if they were novels. The blue was bits of this and bits of that, Always aware how easy it is to produce mud looking wash with watercolor! Happy with what I have produced, my scrap bit finds it rightful place in the draw…

Ohhh how I loved paper dolls when I was little! Do you want to know a secret I still do! Years ago before personal computers were even a thought: there were paper dolls. Sitting on a floor cutting out my paper Barbie with her beautiful full dresses and pencil skirts, and let me not forget my National Velvet cut out doll. She had a strong resemblance to Elizabeth Taylor who played in the movie when she was a young girl.
A few years later I would still be on the floor but cutting out my own handmade Paper dolls. I would sketch out the beautiful ladies that graced the Sears and J.C. Penny catalogs and created my own dresses with color pencils and paint.
Nothing has really changed I still have a major infatuation with paper and paint that has brought me delight in each and every project I complete.
