I set this up before I left for Arkansas, about a week ago. Yesterday, I was anxious to go and get my eye surgery, and wanting something to occupy a few hours. I started this, no drawing at all, just began with my brush, locating areas of extreme light and dark, and letting the image just emerge. I started to see a shoe there, ( these are very old, and worn, from an antique sale... ) and I just kept refining. It was kinda fun, no hassle or pressure. The little quilt is one I made for my granddaughter for her baby dolls, out of left over fabric from a baby quilt I recently completed. All in all, I like the results, because they truly are looser than my usual paintings. Since these could have actually been 'baby boomer ' shoes, I named it "Naptime, circa 1950", with the help of my daughter...

Tracey is in school in Fayetteville Arkansas, and will graduate with a masters degree in English education this semester. She's worked so hard and this degree will compliment her photo-journalism degree from MU. She got to reconnect with her old buddy this year, which is a joy that most people don't get to do.
We're so proud of you, Buffy !
Tomorrow I'll re-evaluate and maybe put a few finishing touches on this !

I've seen this woman walking before, with her yellow hat... well, this time I stopped, and asked her for a few pictures, and she graciously obliged. Something about that hat !
