OK, so I had some friends over and had Carla Sohnheim’s 2 great books on the table. I showed everyone how to start a cranky birds. They cooperated, possibly thanks to good cheer, drinks, a beautiful day and lots of art supplies on the table. I want to forward them to Dar Hosta, http://darhosta.wordpress.com/cranky-birds/ but I need some help with sayings. Storyteller artist Don Cadoret turned me on to his friend Dar’s blog and it is so cool. Don’s work is really quite fabulous and he has an opening this Thursday of his new works in Bristol, RI. Check out his work for a real treat.
Everyone made something out of their blob but any and all suggestions for what each bird is saying would be greatly appreciated!!!
I’ll even send something good and fun and maybe drawn by me to the person who makes the best caption!
A wonderful painter, Don Cadoret, http://www.doncadoret.net/New_IMAGES.php sent me a link to a blog by a dear friend of his, Darla http://darhosta.wordpress.com/
She referenced a friend and artist Carla Sonheim who has written a new book ,
Drawing and Painting Imaginary Animals. http://carlasonheim.wordpress.com/
This book looks so cool and I am eager to see what creatures she has in there.
Well Darla asked people to follow the original instructions from Carla and put a blob of watercolor on paper and then play with it any way you want to create a Cranky bird. So in the free moments I had today I played with blobs and came up with a few sillies. One of the rules is there has to be some comment on the page. I am not used to letting go and just playing, but I did.
Here is what I came up with.
Help I’ve Fallen And I Can’t Get Up!
I never wanted to walk on stilts.
