Vintage plastic apes from Tara inspire a drawing.

Two giant ladies emerging from the archives. A larger than life self portrait drawing I did five years ago. These giantesses have been dancing / fighting with each other on the wall of my parent's basement for a while. Always interesting to revisit our past selves.

speaking of swimming pools...

Here's a pool collage drawing.

Geronimo! Mystery diver.

swimming pools

 I used to house sit for my friends the Coverdales and the pool in their back yard reminded me of David Hockney's swimming pool paintings. Inspired by his work, I did a swimming pool project with a group of 5-8 year olds. I love the wandering lines in their paintings, suggesting light reflecting and refracting. Float on little people!
