9"x12' pen and ink drawings that were not related to each other but turned out quite suitable for this triptych. This is Summer from the Seasons Series.
Aaaahhh! I am mentally exhausted from my work week and have to do my cleaning and laundry chores this weekend, so there will be no drawing or painting for me. I had to search my files for something that will work for Illustration Friday's prompt - LOST.
Okay, so here it is. These women love to collect Fiesta dishes. One day a burglar went to their respective homes and stole their precious collectible carafes, the first Post 86 productions. They reported it to the police, of course, but the investigation had to be put on hold because of budget cuts to the city's police force due to a financial crisis. The overall poor economic conditions and the rising costs of pensions and retirement benefits for local government workers may compel the city to file for bankruptcy.
Well, these women are friends, you see, and they decided to take matters into their own hands and find the stolen carafes and perhaps make a citizen's arrest. These women have black belts in karate and one of them used to be a marine and another is a bonsai artist. As for the occupation of the two other women, I don't have that information. The women were told by Bernice, the manicurist from the nail salon that the burglar was seen running towards the creek just outside town and may live in that area.
The women decided to meet in front of the dry cleaner's store and jog sixteen miles towards the creek. Yes, they are very fit and healthy. Well, it has been a very hot summer and even though a man driving in a truck offered them a lift, they refused because the man had no front teeth and that frightened one of the women named Caleche' who I later found out is a piano teacher, a mime and an emergency and trauma nurse.
By the time they got to the creek, they were so tired, hot and thirsty that they decided to take a dip in the cool stream. Caleche' was so tired she decided to take a nap. They have not found the carafes yet, but they are close. Can you find the carafes?
Oh! The fourth woman, I found out is a children's book illustrator and is married to the CEO of the tea company. I also found out that the bonsai artist filed for divorce from her husband after she caught him in bed with Bernice's cousin Olivia who is a pastry and donut designer. Yes, Virginia, there is such an occupation.
