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.

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?

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

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

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...

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!

Thank you all.
