one photo that i found on pinterest really struck my interest. something about it's simplicity fascinates me. the umbrella, the trench coat, the way she looks over her shoulder... love it! so i sketched the image, not in a way of recreating it accurately, but capturing what it says to me. i already know that i will spend more time with this image, sketching it and approaching it from different angles, sort of studying it. one of the things i've already been thinking about is trying out color schemes, such as this one that i had created a while ago:
unfortunately this color scheme and the post that went with it includes bad memories of losing a great quantity of my most important files on the computer. the initial response i get to admitting that it happened is: why didn't you back up? the thing is, i did. but a long list of human errors led to the unthinkable. they are gone. as gone as gone can be. gone in the sense that even the fbi couldn't recover them. no, worse: the csi miami guys wouldn't even be able to recover them!
that also means the little "folk art flower designs" are gone. sure, i could recreate them and i know i will at some point. but i was really far along with a project that involved these flowers and it took quite a number of weeks of my time to get this far. i had almost completed it. sooo frustrating.
have you also lost a major part of your work at any time? did it upset you a lot or where you able to keep your cool and quietly start over again?
