Laundry Day

“A mistake is simply another way of doing things.”
– Katharine Graham

Laundry Day – 4″ x 6″ Watercolor & Gouache

Okay…. I have not lost my mind and I have not started taking drugs.  he he  This was done in response to sundiver’s challenge for the WetCanvas WDE.  She challenged us to paint like Marc Chegall.  I know it’s lame, but I had fun anyway.  I used bits and pieces from six of Wendy’s reference photos.    I should not have used those two big flowers like that, but oh well.  🙂

About Katharine Graham

Katharine Graham, the publisher of The Washington Post, is considered one of her era’s most powerful women. She was born in 1917 in New York. After her father bought the newspaper, she joined the staff as a reporter. Her husband inherited the paper from her father, and Graham took it over when he died in 1963. During her tenure, the paper printed the controversial Pentagon Papers and uncovered the Watergate conspiracy. She won a Pulitzer Prize in 1988 for her autobiography, Personal History. She died in 2001.

    This is absolutely not lame. In fact, I think I’d like to see one such as this once a week. It tells a tale and that makes it ever so precious. How much better it takes on an air of whimsy and fantasy. You go girl! No better vacations than those we can take while creating our art. 🙂
