pairing

sept12 pairing

left: metro shoes
right: fieldwork shoes

still
looking down.

i was
inspired
to sketch
shoes
by
this drawing.
i have
been trying
to do a
drawing.a.day
like
lisa did.
maybe i should
pair my daily
polaroids
with sketches...

i have
been thinking
about pairings.
some of
my favorites:
3191
summer polaroid project
2 views
documentry project

. . . . .

it was
a beautiful
day
so i sat
outside
eating
my green bean,
blue cheese,
and
walnut salad
while
sketching.
i
was distracted
by an ant
carrying
off
a large piece
of blue cheese.

Reacquainting oneself with a pencil, a drawing a day... sounds wonderful! And I love your last line "wonder how
the colony
liked it?"
... sounds like a great title for a work to me!
take care, g xo

Love your pairings, I definitely vote for more sketches and polaroid combos! How sweet of you to notice the ant who carried away a piece of blue cheese then, honoring him with a sketch whilst thinking about the colony :) No one else but you could have documented better.

Polaroids and sketches sound wonderful. But you're a busy gal, so maybe they could be a special treat. :) And that ant - gotta love 'em. Such good movers and doers.
