happy houndstooth


when it came time to start drawing in my new catalog, i knew exactly what my first entry would be......my houndstooth reading glasses!  they are they first thing i look for when i walk into my studio, and they're the last thing i put down when i leave.  on my list of happy-art-stuff, they rank numero uno because when it comes to creating, they see so much better than i ever could......






and they really are an art-girl's best friend!!


{this catalog page was created using micron pens, 
derwent watercolor pencils, koi watercolor, 3B graphite pencil.}

Lori, How true! I couldn't create without my readers!!! They sure are numero uno! Love, love "your" houndstooth. They are such fun too. What another great journal this will be. Best, Jeanette

Must admit to admiring your glasses for a long time! I have to take my glasses off when I'm crafting. They varifocals and the long distance is fine but I do need my prescription changed for the close work. At the moment I'm sticking to them as they are, I'd sooner spend the money on craft :o)

How I love your glasses. Whenever I see a peek of them on your blog .... I think that's Lori!! I love the idea of this little journal and it is very appropriate to have the glasses at the beginning. I know for myself (midlife) that I can't see worth a darn without my reading glasses!
