For Wordle: NINTH, I chose the ninth story from A Thousand and One Arabian Nights. In that story a porter follows the lady of the house through the marketplace and carries all the goods she purchased (which I drew, above). No shopping carts in those days, I guess.
I didn’t remember any dreams so I painted the beautiful Great Blue Heron I saw at Point Isabel today.
I was so happy with the first page and so unhappy with the second one. I spent a lot of time on the drawing of the complicated apple slices in the slicer and then totally messed up the painting. I tried to “fix” it but on Hobonichi Tomoe River paper you really have to get the painting in one shot. Fixing rarely works.
