|Red No. 18|
I am going on an art retreat with the NW Collage Society this weekend. I plan on working on the new Red Series there. I have the substrates cut and gessoed. I have a pile of papers for the background all ready to go. I guess I will be seeing red this weekend! :-)
As mentioned in a previous blog posting I am reading Eleanor and Hick. It is quite a good read and yesterday as I read I found a little anecdote that I particularly liked. Eleanor, Franklin, Hick, and more of the Roosevelt family attended the World Series between the New York Yankees and the Chicago Cubs. Both Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig played that game. Babe Ruth was famous for defining right where the baseball would fly when he hit the ball. Eleanor was fast asleep and missed all the excitement when, yes, indeed, Babe Ruth hit a home run right where he said he would. I guess Eleanor was not much of a baseball fan!
