|Coffee Conversation No. 2, 6 x 6 inches mounted|
it's an accomplishment.
I like this group of people, they share a common story (they like coffee).
It all started with a trip to the coffee shop one very hot day this past summer (coffee drinkers without AC need to travel for their morning cup). I brought my sketchbook of course and spent more time drawing than drinking. My experience is, no one notices.
Later I chose the ones I was most intrigued with and drew them again, this time with a big black crayon, one of my favorite tools (no erasing there). I had used my acute eavesdropping skills to flesh out the stories of these people...with a bit of poetic license of course.
|oh those 3/4 faces in weaving, so tricky when small...|
I have to say my first was one of my favorites, this woman ordered iced coffee to go. Trust me, it was hot outside.

The final piece in the series of 5 came back to wedge weave (yes indeed Connie Lippert). There was a lot of action that day, the perfect opportunity for a bit of wedge weave.
I used to do far more tiny faces years ago and it was such a pleasure to return to that practice. The connection to my drawing makes it even better, the stories of each person a bit richer.
Winter is a few months away. I wonder what a trip to the coffee shop will look like then?
