squashed tomatoes and stew

You know I should never ever mention anything I have lined up. It's it the kiss of death. This is not the exciting project update I mentioned in the last TWO posts. My excuse this time is that something else popped up. A birthday to be precise. My little old blog's birthday. Apparently this blog is actually five years old. Well, it was about two weeks ago. I forgot. Again. Which, my family and friends will tell you, is also very typical.

So I'd like to say a Happy belated Birthday to my blog and I. And, I'd like to say thanks. Thank you for all the visits and comments over the past five years and 568 (!) posts. I appreciate each and everyone of them.

My blog will be 5 in a couple of weeks.
I wish I could say it's also filled with great drawings, but, sadly...all I can come up with is a ratty little sketch today.
Thank goodness we all have you for inspiration! Squashed tomatoes to you, too, m'dear.

Happy birthday! I can relate to making announcements about things you are planning on doing. It has never worked out very well for me either. I think I'm learning to keep quiet until I'm ready to show what I've done. It keeps the pressure from building up so much. Good luck with your project. Take your time!

Hippo, birdie, two ewes ...

Thought these links might help on the inspiration not feeling isolated aspect of things:

Page at the Archives of American Art on the exhibition with some illustrations …

If you go to the front page of the Archives of American Art you will find a mass of other ‘stuff’ artists have left behind in their notes, papers and sketches.

Keep up the great work, Andrea.
