In a couple more months I’ll be sharing the results of work on the big painting commission I mention in the recent WordPress Photo Challenge: PLACE IN THE WORLD
Last weekend I collaborated with my multi-talented friend, Annie – WordPress blog: CURIOUS MIND GARDEN
Annie recently took an online poetry class. The final project required collaboration with another artist. She wrote a poem from SUNDAY BRUNCH – a gouache painting in my website Gallery – and I made the following painting from one of her new poems: “Self Portrait as Plate Spinner”
It’s 8 x 10″, using gouache (“goowash”, an opaque watercolor) & Prismacolor pencils. I work things out in stages on tracing paper – first pencil, then committing to the lines by inking over them with a Micron pen – transferring images to the final paper using a light table, so I’m not having to sketch over and over and erase directly on the final paper.
Have a great weekend and week ahead…involving a collaboration?! ~ Pierr

I grew up in Seattle in the trees…
…observing birds and critters, making meals for fairies with maple seeds and berries. If I could have finagled it, I would have lived inside a tree. Our family house was big, but the eight of us filled it to capacity. I spent most of my time in this gazebo on the hillside. Every place I’ve lived since has had a cozy bird’s nest feel. Even now in Spokane.
Here’s where I communicate.
Here’s where I make jewelry stands for my Etsy shop.
I’m also working on a huge painting commission that’s taking up my entire drawing table (and can’t be shared till it’s done), so I created an area where I paint in small sections, easier to manage……with a view to what’s going on outside my PLACE IN THE WORLD.
Have a wonderful week in your place! xo ~ Pierr
