Sunset, May 17


Sunset, May 17, originally uploaded by graphicartepsi.

Last night was the open house at my friends Susan and Jytte's shop, Scandinavian Country--or so I thought. I got all dressed up, hopped in the Jeep, and found all the lights out and the door locked. Um...where WAS that invitation....??

So I came back home, called Susan's house, and found out it was tonight...which suited me just FINE. It was a gorgeous evening, I got back into my comfies and headed out to the deck with my sketchbook, paints, a drink and my lovely chiminea.

I love sunset from my back yard...it paints the wooded hill behind my house with warm, stained-glass hues and it was satisfying trying to capture that. I've been in a marvelous mood lately, no idea why, but I'm taking full advantage of it! Lovely, lovely, lovely...

Oh! Kate! I love this. I think it'd make a deevine framed piece. If you ever consider selling it ... :)
It's in my handbound journal, sweetie, sorry!

wow that's a lovely drawing!
Thank you! I really like that pen--it's Micron Pigma's Brown, 05 size.

Ooh, I want to be there! Sorry about the date confusion, but look at what you managed instead. Sounds like you had a lovely time, and your painting is beautiful.

Thank you, Jenny! I'm seldom sorry to "have to" stay home!
This has to be my favourite drawing of yours that I've seen. Really delicate, with beautiful lighting.
Well, thank you E-J!! I was pleased with it too...an enjoyable evening.

So graceful and lovely. I especially like the way the brown ink of drawn and written lines knits together the whole piece. And, oh, that dusky light! A simple, small sketch of genius.
Xoxo,

Thank you, sweet Xoxa! I'm honored...and I WAS happy with that warm glowing color!
