Escapist Sketching

March 25, 2014 13 Comments

Hello. According to iPhone weather, there is a 50% chance that it will be snowing by the time I leave the studio this evening. And there is a 100% chance that I'll be angry about it. I think it is safe to say that we've all had it with this winter.

Let's just escape. Mentally. On the wings of this sketch. To a place where everyone wears cat eye sunglasses all the time. Where palm trees dot every street and every meal is eaten outdoors and accompanied by rosé.

Can you see it? The turquoise water glistening on the horizon past that line of chic black and white umbrellas outside that cafe? Meditate on the pastel, floral appliquéd sundresses and wicker purses... white linen blazers...and d'orsay strappy sandals. We should set this to sound of music favorite things tune.

If we believe it hard enough, maybe it will bring on the spring. Keep tuning out your canada goose jacket staring at you from the corner of your office and quietly chanting to yourself about scalloped shorts. Let's turn this season around!

I just keep reminding myself it’s going to be 61 degrees on Monday- there’s light at the end of the tunnel!

What a beautiful dress! I’m dreaming of a place where the words “wind chill” have no meaning at all!
