Sailboat of the Day #2528

Tiny finger-lights surfaced from the mass of Things as we unpacked, so Laurel painted a lone sailboat drifting through a tiny sea. The night crowds in around its crew, but they are bright enough to light their way until morning.

I like the process through which people learn to draw with light – making quick sketches a few seconds at a time, adjusting their penmanship and learning to angle the lights to align the images and angle them toward the camera properly. Laurel had it immediately, drawing the boat with ease and writing her name (backwards from her perspective) on her first try.

We have lots of mirrors in this apartment – I wonder if we could do something with them…

why must you be so mean
