The Heavenly Tenants by William Maxwell and
one of my favorite illustrators : Ilonka Karasz
Ilonka: isn't she beautiful?
picture found via: we too were children, Mr. Barrie
A vain confession:
I want to have portraits like this taken of myself oneday... :]
I especially love the placement of her hands and her gaze...
but I am most exceptionally excited for Enchanting Modern to come, a book about her life.
Lastly, my sweet friend Emily had some ladies over last night for dinner and then to decorate canvases. It was her Christmas present to all of us. She provided the canvases as well as magazines and books for everyone to tear up and mod podge till our hearts delight. It was so much fun, and such a creative way to bring ladies together. * she got the books at the thrift store. So smart she is!
Here is my little canvas...I made it for Jesse. :)
Clearly I am not the best with mod podge... :-[) heheheh lol ...
so if I was to do it again, I would stick with rubber cement...keeps the bubbles from forming...
