Odd Little Things
Today the humidity and temperature both dropped to below 80! In celebration of the lovely cool dryness, I drew a bunch of little things that live in our house and have done so for years and years. On the right at the top, a glazed ceramic head fashioned by my son David when he was around 8 years old. Below that is a very rough bisque-fired porcelain head that I made long ago. It has an open head in which I put business cards.
On the left at the top is a bisque-fired bird's head. I think it was meant to be a whistle, but it doesn't actually whistle. On the bottom is an exquisite pair of tiny hands meant to be children's hands, made by a friend. I keep them in a small match box on a shelf. On the right, a papier mache doll that was made in Mexico but which I bought in Austin, TX, when I was there for a conference that happily spanned Day of the Dead and thus involved some out-of-conference activities
