Everyday in May - 4 and 5
I did another 2 page journal spread in my House series for my sketches yesterday and today. My father built this house with the help of my mother's brothers and some friends - in a rural community approximately 20 miles from New York City. We moved in one week after I finished 3rd grade and I lived there until I graduated from high school - plus 4 college summers. As I was writing this I realized that I have lived in my NYC apartment longer than I lived in my childhood home - a surprising realization.
I left out the trees on the front lawn because it wasn't possible to see the house. Maybe next winter I'll resketch this house from a winter photo and add the bare trees. Snow and trees are still challenges for me!
Next I plan to sketch the college dorm where I lived for 2 of my 4 years.
