these are the clouds of Michelangelo

Today I just needed something to get lost in.

Andrea, there certainly is lots going on in this drawing! For some reason, I thought of the painting of God creating Adams, reaching down to touch his hand... The mind is a strange thing, eh? I always look forward to your drawings.

You've gone blue! This is like a lovely Delftware pattern, I do like the way it flows over the page.

Name this one "Lost and Lovely" Love all the details and flow.

awesome work, as usual. and it makes me think of my mother's voice, who would be saying something like: "you should be washing those instead of rawing them." and I would be trying to ignore her voice. how long did you get lost for?

Amazing. It's laundry and you STILL made it look awesome!

Jason Das said...

Beautiful! And I love the way you signed it...

Gosh, how can you turn laundry into poetry?
What a beautiful piece, Andrea, just beautiful.

Wendee said...

Wonderful! I especially love the wayward socks!

Gillian said...

This is very organic. A fascinating take on a hum-drum subject. Beautiful!

Jess said...

Wonderful drawing and movement - So clever!

Your talent is amazing, Andrea, as is your delightful sense of whimsy! Always a pleasure to visit your blog.
(BTW, the whole time I was drawing the child's rain cape, which was actually much much more detailed than I drew it, I kept thinking...."Andrea Joseph should be doing this....)

Thank you everyone.

Once again, I am really surprised by the response to this one. Pleasantly surprised, of course. You can't really go wrong with an all blue drawing though.

Glassgirl, I got lost for quite a while. About 3 or 4 hours....maybe more.

Sherry, thank you for inspiring the title.

Cheers folks!

Oh Andrea, the way you make even laundry compelling is such an inspiration. I just love getting lost in your world...

Jenny said...

You have beautiful laundry. I'm always amazed with your ability to handle detail.

Awesome to be able to create an ambiguous Michaelangelo with the week's washing! I wouldn't have imagined in a thousand years that drawing the family's clothes in heaps would be drawable!

Love your clouds of michealangelo! that is how I feel sometimes with laundry, but unfortunately, mine doesn't look(or sound) so poetic!
I also enjoyed your cases drawings, with your socks in the corner(where you spilled) sort of the start of your clouds!

Cheers guys, I'm glad you liked it. I was unsure about this one at first but it's growing on me.

Thank you all.
