On the Phone

Many years ago I caught my wife off guard by taking a random photo while she was minding her own business talking on the phone. I loved her smile and decided to do a drawing. I post this now because January 27 would have been our 49th anniversary.

8 Days 9 Flames

My first idea for doing a Hanukkah image was to try something a little different; something I hadn’t done in many years: paint with bleach onto construction paper. It sounded intriguing to create the flames as the bleach bled into the soft paper. Then I wondered what it would look like on black mat board. After I was all set up to paint I discovered I had no bleach!

But I found a very old bleach pen. The liquid came out rather bubbly and just sat there. Not what I had hoped for. While it was drying (it took a long time) I painted the Menorah flames using acrylic on another piece of mat board (Happy Hanukkah!).

Even though I think real bleach on actual construction paper would have been more fun I think this came out nicely unusual.
