Bellarific Friday Andy Warhol style
It time for another Bellarific Friday challenge and this sketch was brought to us by the uber talented Paula. Leave it to her to give us something to really made us think! Now, I'll admit that I really didn't think about it too long because if it has four squares it screams Andy Warhol. So keeping with that theme I got to work and stamped Anise Ketto's flowers onto four scraps of white paper with memento black ink. Then I punched them out into circles. Each 'background' was colored solid (yes...NO shading!!!) with copic markers and the flowers were all colored the same. Next, I punched out four squares and mounted a flower on each one. If you are familiar with Andy Warhol's work, it is typically very vibrant so I thought the life is too short for beige sentiment was very appropriate. Because the sentiment was so long I did have to improvise a bit on the sketch and move it down. Now hop on over to the Bella Blog later today because I'm sure you will find some inspiring work over there!
And a little Bessie update! The little pooch is doing well, however, she is having difficulty adjusting to the lifestyle changes that she must endure for the next 4-6 weeks. She DOES NOT like being confined in the kitchen...NOT AT ALL...and it's not like I'm leaving her in there all alone, I'm with her...but she stands there and whines and cries and desperately wants to perch herself on the back of the couch like she is used to. I won't let her do that, but I will let her on the couch if she is supervised so she won't jump off. I tell ya, it's more work than a baby! But it is forcing me to relax a bit myself so that is probably a good thing.
Have a wonderful weekend everyone...It is the Cancer Relay for Life here in Chatham tonight so I'll be getting up extra early to volunteer in the food tent! Hopefully it won't rain too bad on the those who are walking tonight.
