Living With Lisa's Moly.

Lisa was one of my first online buddies, so I was very excited to receive her moly from Robert last week. I've admired her work for a long time, I think since I saw her Nutcracker Christmas card of a few years past. Let me tell you people, looking at it online is nothing like seeing it in person. There are so many layers of color and fantastic ink work. Robert's work is just as impressive! I can't paint my kids at all, let alone with watercolor in a slick little moly.

It's been sitting up on my shelf, safe from little hands, lonely and forlorn, wondering if I was ever going to get over my idiotic fear. Sigh. The scary thing is I had an idea right away, but I didn't want to screw it up. Today I had a break between kids and design work and decided it was time. I'm not sure if I'm happy with it and since I have time, I'm going to live with it for a bit, but here it is — natural man-made container. I'm a dork, aren't I?

Megan's Moly

Yay!! I finally have Megan's moly ready to ship off to Robert... I was hoping to work in all the molys at my home over my vacation...but that obviously didn't happen. Shane's moly will be coming to you next Robert... I have been toying with what to do for the past few days and think I have the concept down.

BTW that is a sea shell she is handing off to you, so good luck!!! :)

Lisa's Moly

Here's my contribution to Lisa's Moly.
Three weeks ago I had three Molys kicking around my house. After Monday I'll have zero!

The Child Picasso

I added the ink lines to my entry in Karen's Moly this morning, so I will be able to send it on to Shane tomorrow.

The drawing is a combination of Picasso's portrait of his son (at least, I think it is his son, but I couldn't find out on line) and Karen's children's art supplies. See for a picture of the portrait: http://i107.photobucket.com/albums/m305/llort_2006/picasso_Portrait_Paul_picasso_1923.jpg

My addition to Shane's Moleskine

I'll leave everyone in suspense as to the placement and the size, for now ;p Definitely my own style, but taking hints from Shane's more geometric designs. This was fun - my first drawing on someone else's Moleskine!
