How Would You Walk a Tightrope?




Direct from the pages of my sketchbook, here are a few ways one might tiptoe, dance, scoot or leap across a tightrope.  Which one might be you?

My plan is to do a series of five little paintings on 5 x 5 canvas with collage under paintings. 



That's all I have for now, dear readers.

I like the one that looks like she's ice-skating! Fun : ) They're going to be great - love the backgrounds already.

Thanks so much lilasvb and Kim. I'll show more when I got them put on the canvases.

I'd be the one dangling by my hands with the wide-open freaked-out eyes and the scream coming out of my mouth... oh wait, I didn't see that example in your drawings... :-) These are fun. Great job.

I love your concept and seeing your sketchbook. The process of developing a painting an idea is my favorite part. For me, I am often just as happy with the "sketches" as I am the finished product. Can't wait to see these!

These are fantastic and I, like the others who have commented, cannot wait to see they finished products. It seems you have a little birdie muse, whispering in your ear. Maybe it is one of our ancestors, like Evelyn! Love you.
