Belles of the night :: Les belles de la nuit

“No artist is pleased. There is only a queer divine dissatisfaction, a blessed unrest that keeps us marching and makes us more alive than the others.” (Martha Graham)

Today was a difficult day at school and I needed to calm my nerves and spirit… Putting my head in the fridge, I could not find a potential fruit/vegetable that I felt like drawing tonight… until my eyes turned and saw these three bananas lying there, waiting to be the belles of the night. I wanted to mention that for those of you who are interested in the subject of art, painting, tips and books there is a fabulous website that I refer to very often, and where I have bought books from. Gurney Journey’s website is amazing and is well worth perusing.

Aujourd’hui a été une journée difficile à l’école et j’avais besoin de me détendre et calmer mes nerfs et mon esprit… En mettant la tête dans le frigo, je ne pouvais trouver un fruits/légumes que je voulais dessiner … jusqu’à ce que mes yeux se tournent et voient ces trois bananes qui attendaient d’être les belles de la nuit. Si le sujet de l’art, peinture, trucs, livres, etc. vous intéresse, le site de Gurney Journey est incroyable.
