new socks



My daughter walked through the heels of her shoes, and while we were out buying new sneakers we got four pairs of white socks as well. So clean, so new. (For now.)

I drew this pair with a white china marker on the white page, a tactic which forces me not to be fussy, as the line is nearly invisible. Then I add washes of color to find the shape on the page where the marked line resists the paint.


I also see a map here -- (earth, water, isthmus of sock, -- a satellite view). Elizabeth, you are the cartographer of the household, everyday things. Thank you for your discoveries!

I have seen you use this marker before, your description of the way it works, this time, has me intrigued...I like the drawing

Love this--and love Richard's comment about the isthmus of sock and you being a cartographer of the everyday!
