I have been waiting for this Friday to come around, not that I wanted the week to go faster because they seem to go fast enough already. I was going to get up early and get this post out, but DiNozzo ate a piece of meat with a toothpick through it as
I was making jerky. I threw him into the SUV, grabbed my cell phone, (mind you I was in pajamas still at 6 AM) and headed to the vet. At the end of my driveway, he threw up the meat and his breakfast in my back seat, all over my rain coat. So I didn't have to embarrass myself at the vet's because I am a bad dog mom. The pajamas should have been evidence of my care and concern, right?
I will post the story of Frank in a separate post, it is like a tale of unbelievable proportions. Poor guy.
I displayed my Nudes Bathing for the first time in public at the Fiber Group meeting on Wed. They were well received and I got a lot of questions about making the leaves. Everyone loved their cute little butt cheeks! LOL. I got some suggestions about doing some shading on the butt cheeks, someone suggested make up (of which I have none) or a colored pencil (which I have somewhere around here......hmmm).
In my desire to create more nudes, I have put together a box, appropriately labeled NUDES. The paint pen I used has a large flat part to write with, and I was upset that the paint was runny. But look at it! I love the way it turned out! I don't' think I can do that again if I tried!
Anyway, I have started on several other nude ideas. Anne of Quilting in the Desert and I are going to make purses with Nudies on them! LOL. I think I shall start on that project.
Here is the new light box, a welcome change from what I have been doing on the window, the storm door, the light box Frank made. Have you ever tried to trace something from an iPad? Fun. The picture moves constantly. I was able to trace a nice nude, although need to work on a pen that has better results.
I can make several nudes and then create the backgrounds as I have inclinations. I keep thinking of situations that they could be in. Like if I had one sitting down, she could be sewing. Or jumping and playing basketball. Or at the beach. The ideas keep coming!
I will warn you, though, if you google "nudes playing basketball" you get some pretty wild stuff! LOL.
