WHY DO THESE PERSPECTIVE STUDIES MAKE ME THINK OF SONGS?


Engine Engine Number 9
Coming down that railroad line
How much farther back did she get off?
Old brown suitcase that she carried
I've looked for it everywhere
It's just not here among the rest 
And I'm a little upset, yes...

Roger Miller

Don't know why this one turned out so yellow!



Little boxes on the hillside
Little boxes made of ticky tacky
Little boxes on the hillside
Little boxes all the same...

I've got a cold - it came on Sunday evening.  I'm tired and fuzzy-headed, but will go to class today and try to learn - and try to keep this cold to myself and not give it to others.  Glad I went - we were introduced to some new concepts and the first lessons on drawing portraits and how to measure by putting the head "in a box" and working from there.  It will be interesting to try this - maybe when my head is clearer.

Hi Rhonda,
You just need a visit to a sunny and warm place. Easy for me to say, but I know it would make that cold fly away.
Hope you're better soon!
Sincerely,
Gary.

You are doing beautifully with perspective, Rhonda. I love everything you've done since you started studying this.

Ah, yes, warm, sunny days and sandy beaches - you lucky dog!!!

Sherry, thanks so much. I know I'm just taking baby steps right now but I'll be able to do more than toddle around running into things soon - I hope!

Rhonda - so sorry about your cold - hurry up and get better soon. Your perspectives teamed with the songs made me chuckle. Take care.

I'm singing help me Rhonda and you're singing your songs about your drawings. Cool.

I took a two day perspective workshop. it was fun and interesting. I love your rail road tracks.

Now for some Johnny Cash: "I hear the train a comin' It's rollin' 'round the bend, And I ain't seen the sunshine, Since, I don't know when..."

Hope you feel better soon.

I am in awe of your discipline in these perspective exercises. They look brilliant.

Thanks, Debbie and Carol (I do like Johnny Cash - "I don't care if I do die do die do die!!!")
Thanks, Vandy. I keep trying to get better with everything I do - hope it's working.
