The Waiting Room

Please click on photos and drawings

While my dining room is becoming a catch-all for our furniture as we WAIT for our builder to start our two-room addition



and as my creative tendencies impatiently churn, chipping off white paint from a vintage mirror we bought in Boston



the ARTIST WANNABE in me asks



If Marie Antoinette


lived and walked








in today's world, what would she wear?



With colored pencils in hand I say, "Maybe a strapless TURQUOISE velvet gown, pooling to the floor



dripping over matching blue boots?



Or, how about





wearing pink tulle and a tan



with glittered silver pumps finished off with a velvet bow



to make her midnight run


through the enchanted streets of PARIS



back to her hUmBle cottage


more fitting for today's PRINCESS on the RUN.


Now in this frock, Snow White would appear a bit garish


But a more subtle TEXTURE like BLACK VELVET and RAVEN LOCKS would highlight that alabaster skin.


So my friends, as I bide my time in THE WAITING ROOM OF LIFE, I am discovering my childhood pass-time of illustrating once again, while I look forward to a new white settee




to grace my studio where reflections of white


beckon me to rest

and patiently WAIT.

WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?

Rediscover your childhood dreams while YOU wait for that special something. And to see how my HERO Ruben, is going back in time as well, visit his blog, RATTUS SCRIBUS. We are having to go out and buy more sketch pads....
