Tough time with productivity lately.  Suzette on hold.  Concentrating on book projects.  Taking a little time for some experimenting.

Time Off

For a variety of reasons, Suzette will be taking some time off.  No clue when - or even if - she will be back.  I was hoping to add a few pages to, at least, reach a good stopping point, so I apologize to be taking off "mid-sentence".

Trial Over

BZZZT is the sound of a fast-forwarding tape or VCR.  Remember them?  (Note to self: need to update notation.  Again!)

Forced Smiles

Agreeable Suzette.  So quick to say yes!  So afraid of conflict.  Or even different opinions.  [micron + watercolor]

Imps HQ

Recognize that feeling, when a little too much of your mind real-estate is taken over by unwelcome tenants?   [watercolor and painful hand...]

Therapy is Tough

Had a hard time coming up with this page.  But here it is, still wet.  No time for details.  [micron + watercolor.]

From a fan

Pleading guilty here on charges of "got absorbed in a mystery novel and ignored her work."  To make up for lack of new page, here is a drawing from my favorite fan.

Good Will

As many of my followers have noticed, Suzette is full of good-will.  But she certainly lacks the ability to view beyond her side-ways nose!  Let's hope her critical thinking wakes up eventually!  [black ink + watercolor]

Hope Again

The collage table had been inactive for too long.  Such fun to pull out scraps of paper and glue again.  And for Suzette, Hope Springs Eternal.  [collage + ink + acrylics.]

Drawing furniture...  Not easy for me.  Took a while.  But here is my page with 2 therapists' offices.  [micron + watercolor.]

Suzette's Answer

Suzette's answer to Victor's offer for a "trial period".  Will this be a successful plan?  We'll see.  [micron + PS]

A Trial Period?

Sure, the whole mess is tough on Suzette, but a potential break-up is hard for the initiator too, I'm sure.

Suzette knew very well her thinking was off.  And yet logic can't always keep thoughts from going their disturbing way.  [black ink + PS.]

Surreal Routine

This weird disbelief that life goes on around us in spite of bad news, we've all had it.  (black ink + PS)

They didn't want to repeat their parents' stories.  Yet, there are many ways to err.  [micron + gouache.]

At the Bus Terminal

Late in the evening, at the bus Terminal, Victor comes home after a weekend in the city.  Something feels awkward.  [micron + colored pencils.]

Suzette and Yolita at the bus station, waiting for Victor.  The bus was late.  [acrylics on paper.]

And Another

Another design example from Suzette's knitting work.  [acrylics on paper.]

Design Sample

Here is a sample of Suzette's knitting designs from this period.  Suzette gets inspiration from nature although she doesn't like to copy it as is.  [acrylic on paper.]

Happy with Work

Suzette is feeling good with herself.  That's nice for a change!  [watercolor + colored pencils.]

Personal Pursuits

You may love your kids to pieces, it feels good to touch base with the adult world once in a while.  [micron + colored pencils.]

Dangers Everywhere

And the dangers, or potential dangers, become more and more complex over the years.  [micron + watercolor.]

Terra Cotta

Occasionally Victor would play with clay.  Suzette was very fond of this little family portrait.  [acrylic on paper/ thank you to Henri Moore.]

Personal note: feeling sluggish and repetitive.  May need a bit of time off.  Or a good refreshing weekend?

Expectations and Heartaches.

 Again, the stuff life is made of.  Emotions are always the same; the scenario changes a bit.  [watercolor.]

Letting Go

Was Suzette the only one with this very sedate dream?  [watercolor.]
If I had time, I would redo this picture with the pink cloud changed to a popping bubble.   But I can barely keep up this week.

Family Portrait

 Suzette, Victor and Yolita.  A family portrait by one of their friends, Paolo Pistachio, master embroiderer.  [acrylic on paper.]
