EDM 108 lightbulb


EDM 108 lightbulb
Originally uploaded by linfrye.
I spent yesterday's beautiful day in a conference room learning to creat pod and video casts -- fun, but I sure missed the sunshine.

This smokey lightbulb is the EDM 108 challenge, and I sketched it on the night of the lunar eclipse - viewed from my French door window, looking at the moon fade into dark, brighten with orange as it reemerged and then bright light after the event.

It reminded me how grateful I am for light -- incandescent as well as sun!

This si done really well! I missed the exclipse and am still kicking myself. Other things distracted me, like my hubby coming home! Enjoyed looking through your blog. Beautiful work.

Neat story WITH your painting, Lin--I'm grateful for light, too. Nice job!

And rats, I missed the eclipse, as well, though I think it was cloudy here...

Wonderful light bulb and perfect timing to go along with the eclipse which I also managed to miss.

Nice light bulb. I was irritated because we missed the eclipse.

I love when people add wording around their artwork, especially in a sketchbook. It really adds so much. Can become almost a diary.

Really nice use of the watercolour on this, Lin.
