another pear

still left handed; what a pain


Tuesday, December 29, 2009


Thought it best to name this.
Only two more days of be left handed. Might be interesting to revisit some of these ideas right handed. Might be sorely disappointed.

boxing day, #555

these little one handed flossers are pretty useless. takes 5 or 6 of them to floss. hmmmm....maybe i am a little heavy handed, but still thats a lot of thingies at a time.
i often see them discarded on the sidewalk. odd. i never thought people in general were that much into dental hygiene. definitely better than discarded condoms. eeeyyew!

left handed bouquet

one week since shoulder surgery. I can take a full shower tomorrow!
No more paperwhites...they all croked while I was trying to get up the energy to draw.
This is left handed, and will be for a while.turns your brain inside out.

The paperwhites are starting to go by... those long leaves are beginning to droop.

Ha! The paperwhite flowers are starting to die. Am I ungrateful to the god of paperwhites if I rejoice, just a little?
My arm hurts like bloody hell. Two more days until I go to the body shop and get repaired.

The Ides of December. Slightly diminished photo... must be the color of the paper throwing things off.

Yea! another material to fiddle around with: Conte crayons in white, bistre and sepia. A real blast from the past.

This is the Yupo fragment of the larger page, but the most successful part.

paperwhite 34

Oops! missed two days. I shall not obsess. I shall not obsess. I shall not obsess.
An interpretation of the root system. Im not OCD enough to map out the real thing.
One week to go until shoulder repair day (a bicep tenonesis). I shall be left handed for a while. Left handed and loopy on pain meds. A potentially interesting combination.

Will this get to #50? Will I survive it? Certainly learning a lot, and isnt that the point?
Misery of a rainy, spitting snow day. And then it gets dark early. Fabulous!

My glorious pink poinsettia turned up today, so while I still did the everlovin' paperwhite, the pp (pink poinsettia) is the star of the show in my house.

paperwhite 30

Wow! Thirty days of paperwhites. And a partridge in a pear tree.
Lightly drawn with a sharpie and then Elmer's Glue. If this ever dries, within my lifetime, I wonder how it will take to gouache?

#27! I think Im finding more and more in these paperwhites. But the flip side is that it's a chore.
This is free hand gouache with a water brush.
Im going to repair my shoulder in a little bit. Do I take an hiatus from this? And chance not getting restarted? Bank a bunch of daily drawings; but is that honest? Try to do it with my "off" hand? That might prove to be interesting.

Back to flatness. Hmmmm.
I like the velvety quality of the water wash over the water soluble crayon.
