After a week of having Top Son Luke at home
and doing no arting, I enjoyed having a play in
conservatory studio last night.
I made two skully postcards.
"In the end we are all the same" is my nod
to Halloween. The background is very cool skull
paper tape which I found in Paperchase this week.
It will have limited use, I guess, but I liked it!
"Life is but a dream for the Dead" is my nod to
The Day of the Dead festivities. I was really inspired
by the fabulous opening scene of the new James Bond
film, Spectre, which Family Urbani saw last week.
The background is paper tape which was in the
same pack as the skulls. When I gessoed over it
I was a bit disappointed to find that it scratched
off really easily, but I just changed my
original plans and simply scratched out
We all really enjoyed Spectre.
The opening Day of the Dead procession scene
is wonderfully over the top, as only done by 007 films!
It has to be said that Daniel Craig is still really rather hot.
James Bond is a load of bunkum, but very entertaining.
Luke has now returned to Uni in Plymouth,
taking with him a suitcase full of clean and ironed clothing,
freshly baked muffins and cakes (for him and his friends)
and a new pair of snuggly slippers (he would never think
to get himself some winter slippers).
It was great to have him at home, despite the chaos he brings with him.
Peace and order has now returned to the Urbani household.
Have a great weekend!
