Cartoon

A sketch of this has been in my sketchbook for years, but last week while sitting in waiting rooms, I worked on it some more. It may or may not become a woven piece, but the cartoon is ready and is hanging on a door in the studio with masking tape behind the corners.

Several years ago I bought a roll of vellum that has a grid of 4 squares per inch. I tried to draw what I had sketched out and then drawn on 10 squares per inch graph paper. If you look at the close-up, it’s not pretty. You can see where I had to draw over lines with white poster paint, trying to block some earlier lines out.

The numbers are for me to count sections which will become the colors I plan to use. Those colors are will include some of the ones below, plus a few extras. On the left, will be some blue/violet combinations. On the right, the pale colors will be deleted and the oranges will move to yellow. I’ll live with the cartoon for a while and dye the needed yarns in the meantime. Orange_to_purple

Friday and Saturday were all about appliances—deliveries and installation. You know what it’s like waiting for people to come and do things in the house? That’s what I did—wait and wait. But the new fridge is great and a kitchen stove that actually has a timer that works? Lights that indicate it’s on? Heaven! My old one was over 30 years old, so I guess it was about time, right? And finding a refrigerator without all those water/ice things on the outside took a bit of shopping. Now, we can just hope that everything will last another 30 years!

    So far it hasn’t been a big problem. Probably more than the white that was there previously. Originally, I was thinking stainless, but went with black. I was afraid the black would be overwhelming, but I love the way it looks. The new dishwasher that will be installed in January, will also be black.
