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.


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....
