“I love deadlines. I love the whooshing noise they make as they go by.”
I have not read Mr. (now deceased) Adams' books but I really related to his quote above. In fact, I always feel that if a project is not complete before a deadline then I am really totally behind. Makes no sense, it's just how I am.
To that end I am thrilled to hear the whooshing noise of a deadline go by as I finalize the last of several paintings and drawings I am doing for a friend's book on Marrakech, Morocco. Not stealing her thunder nor revealing the gist until she (and others) hear their deadlines whoosh into publication, I nevertheless less will share some of the pieces I've sent.
grinding argon nuts in the Atlas Mountains, oil
camel waiting for a rider, pen and ink
mint tea service, oil
Mosque entrance, w/c in sketchbook
the rug souk, oil
pen and ink, portal
conundrum: I like the unfinished nature
of this piece so it is resting.
As the "real deadline" is actually another week away I
have time to tweak and cogitate...
WHOOSH........love that sound.
Next on the list.
COLORFULLY ON SCHEDULE,
