on the southern Oregon coast, USA
and in Kiev, Ukraine
Emma had to give my new tools a sniff.
And she was incredibly patient
as the stream
I brought in sixteen feet of table space, which was barely enough. I loved lining up the pages, as the stream flowed out of my brushes, day after day.
With otters arriving from Kiev ...
... my work tables got pretty messy for a while.
Before long though, and once again, things began taking shape, this time with all the pieces coming together.
What a cool program.
If a being-silly self portrait seems odd or out of place to you, I refer you to Zach Helm's line in "Stranger than Fiction." where EmmaThompson's character Kay Eiffel puts Latiffa's Penny in her place. It's close to: 'That just shows how much you know about writing!'
(So you know, I am quoting with ear-to-ear grin here.)
Another otter, all cleaned up.
That eraser and brush come in handy.
some of Elena's tools
Elena gave so much attention to every otter.
Amd she produced every position, and stirred up every
emotion I requested.
