I dare you
I have a huge two volume dictionary; The New Century Dictionary, copyright 1944. It is just full of illustrations. Nearly every page has not one but three or more beautiful little pictures. It has many many birds and winged insects and lots of fish among other things. And millions of words to play with.
I think I will go down this path for a while. This path where I play with words and illustrations and collage them into another little book about words and illustrations.
I dare you.
To do it too.
Here is my art-at-the-desk from yesterday as promised. I have to tell you, I'm not crazy about the turn out. It is the colors that I don't like. But I brought limited stuff in my art-to-go bag and so that was the challenge. It is the grungy that I'm not liking.
I think I will try it again. Friday afternoon art-at-the-desk. A good thing if you can get by with it.
See ya tomorrow,

Another Sisters Reunion.
On this day they talked about one of their favorite games and decided to go to the garden and play.
She always got to be the leader but that was OK, they loved her for that.
They dreamed so many dreams while in the gardens. I guess that is why their dreams are always right there just like a beautiful butterfly flitting about and landing on their sleeve.
One more thing. About the little queen, well one of her fondest memories from home was always dreaming about growing up to be a queen or a princess at the very least. She was always pretending.

The finished is a scan. And I like to show it at the beginning of the post and at the end. I don't know...I just do. Have you noticed that when you post your art, you can scrutinize it and see where you want to add a stroke here or there? I see several places and I forgot to finish the little bird. It's not a "little" bird, is it? It is way out of scale but I don't care. I like it anyway. So, I guess it is not finished after all. But for today.....enough.
Today, I'm working on a small sisters painting and showing a little progress to the right.
Today, I received the latest Cloth Paper Scissors. OK, simply put, I will never get use to seeing my art published. It is so very thrilling!
Another tea party piece is going to be featured as an Cloth Paper Scissors online extra. And it is the tea party that has not been shown here at All Norah'S Art. They don't have it up yet, I will keep you posted on that.
Now, back to today's painting.

Mr Murphy's visit
Now, who pray tell sent Mr Murphy for a visit when I was at the end of the project? You know, that Mr Murphy with all the laws about stuff going wrong and all that $#!+.
Well if you didn't, who did? Because let me tell you, he was there and I did not invite him.
And I know it is just not in Norah'S nature to sabotage. She only gives conflict with offering so many different ideas all at once. And we all know she can't spell.
But about Mr Murphy, he showed up with a most evil evil tool when I was ready to punch and put together the project. You know the tool (crop-a-dile) that will punch and set two different size holes. EVIL!
After practicing on an old book cover and deciding the small hole would be best, I marked and punched the first hole. Then when I punched the second hole (on the front cover), guided my Mr Murphy, no doubt, I punched a big hole instead of a little hole. Staying cool calm and collected, I remember my Daddy telling me I could do anything I thought I could do.

Peep at this

I found another little sketch to work from too. Wanna see?
Isn't she cute? I dated that one. I try really hard to date all my sketches but sometimes I just doesn't happen.
Anyway, I'm having fun working on a "big project" and using my old sketches for inspiration.
One more thing. Thank you to Marilyn for the Brilliante Weblog Award. I thank you so much for the recognition and I apologize that I am so terrible at picking up awards. Time just seems to get away from me. There have been others that I am ashamed to say, time passed by so far that I didn't feel worthy; nevertheless, they were appreciated so much. Thank you.
More later cause I'm going to paint,
