Happy Monday everyone! I hope you had a great weekend!
Mr. G and i went to Harrison Hotsprings to celebrate his grandson Leium’s 7th birthday with his son. They were camping at a lovely Provincial campground. But since Mr. G has a bad back and has difficulty climbing out of a tent we decided to stay at a small local motel. It was cloudy and rained part of the time but we still managed to have fun taking advantage of a local pool fed by the Hot springs.
I brought along some drawing supplies – pad of paper, pens and pencils. While sitting on the edge of the bed in our motel room i began to draw some faces…..just because. I think drawing brings back happy memories of camping with my family and teaching my little sister Linda how to draw cartoons. Back then I was teaching her in our large 9 x 12 canvas tent which we loved! Our inspiration back then was mostly Archie Comic books.
I didn’t know where i was going with the faces but after a bit I received an image in my head of multiple faces on a page together. Last night while watching TV I continued on with my face project.
This morning while cutting the faces out and gluing them to a grey background they began speaking to me and telling stories. So i wrote down what the people were thinking. Of course my inner critic began chiming in telling me some of the sayings were stupid. I persisted however and ended up putting down what the faces were telling me.
Here is yours truly at the front of the motel with a giant elk statue that caught my attention.
I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw a fully functioning telephone booth by the Motel sign. I had to wade my way through spider webs to get to the phone though .
Well that’s it for today. Hope you are having a lovely day!
Love, Violette xo
