there's little i control

drawing a day ~ week 43 Originally uploaded by dressform.

i'm in another state - another state of mind... i wish that i could be there right next to her.... name that tune - anyone??

for me maybe the her is time. can i sidle up to her and seduce her? can i make her perform a trick or two [perhaps slowing down or extending]?? no such luck i'm afraid, but....

say goodbye to purples in the drawings - pink is on the way. my favorite this week is the bird-cagey one - although they aren't really bird cages or anything - i just like the spacing in that one. and the colors. like candy. speaking of which i had a cinnamon fire-ball today and remembered how much i LOVE that candy.

my brain is a scattered mess... so polaroids....
3 watering cans

roses in the dark

and a link to amy's quilt monday which just knocked me over. it's AMAZING. and which also reminds me that i need to carve out a day to see the gee's bend quilts at the de young . thank god that show is up until the end of december!

i will try to be more cohesive next time... promise!

    those are like candy! i know what song that is, but i cheated by looking it up on google, so i won't ruin it for the other guessers...

    this road leads to this,
    this one leads to that...

    know how you feel...
    time is getting
    away from me-
    45 days until
    my exam!
    girl, you have
    eclectic taste...
    from stereo total
    to this!

    (wow there is only single digits left with the weeks of drawing a day!)

    Hi Lisa,
    The polaroid is the perfect medium for those scattered days. I particularly enjoyed the watering can pic.
    Cheers, LJ

    Love the drawing reminiscent of hybrid bird cages. The shapes remind me of the netted forms you put over cakes and edible sweets to keep the flies at bay... or of obscure jelly moulds. Perhaps I'm just feeling peckish.
    Hello pink!
    cheers, gracia

    I really like the drawing on the top left, the first one. I looked at it and immediately thought of party lights. And when did we all become so stretched to the limits timewise? (Its happening here too, where is summer going?) xo

    I also love the bird cagey drawing - reminds me of jelly fish!
    The polaroid of the watering cans makes me think of tanks lined up ready to fire..interesting why im thinking that!?!?!

    oh such lovely drawings. lisa, you provide me with such inspiration! i adore your you have a polaroid gallery on flickr? it would be fun to see them all together. roses in the! xo, shari

    Delicious little drawings. The last one is delicate and beautiful. And I know what you mean about time - she's so fleeting and elusive!  

  12. # Anonymous maditi

    your brain may be a scattered mess, but your post is beautiful :)
    lovely drawings and photos - looking forward to more pink!!

    Are we all in the same state in blogland? Time, she is not my friend right now. She is constantly running from me and I am exhausted with trying to catch up! I wish I could have at least a couple of 48 hour days right now...  

  14. # Blogger eireann

    yes, loving the watercans and the 'birdcages.'

    keep breathing!
