Passing time

It is beautiful outside, I'm about to eat delicious bagels with shmear, and I'm waiting for mr. Ulliman. What more could I ask for on a summer morning? It's so lame but I actually just want to look like I'm doing something while I wait. So an update about the summer, my current project is painting Nancy's loom with all kinds of symbolic and meaningful imagery. I have preliminary sketches done which I might post but I should be able to start paining in the next few days which is pretty exciting. Other summer jobs will be painting vines and other foliage on the front of our shed-my moms doing-and hopefully calvins cello case. I do commissions, please let me know if you are interested! adoersch@c.ringling.edu

More to come soon wheeeee

A couple projects for fun of my favorite. Acrylic on bristol, and then watercolor and ink on paper for the other.

8” x 10”. Acrylic on illustration board. Final for Ill, create a single image children's book illustration on a given poem/rhyme.

`Ducks’ Ditty.’

All along the backwater,
Through the rushes tall,
Ducks are a-dabbling,
Up tails all!

Ducks’ tails, drakes’ tails,
Yellow feet a-quiver,
Yellow bills all out of sight
Busy in the river!

Slushy green undergrowth
Where the roach swim—
Here we keep our larder,
Cool and full and dim.

Everyone for what he likes!
WE like to be
Heads down, tails up,
Dabbling free!

High in the blue above
Swifts whirl and call—
WE are down a-dabbling
Up tails all!
