Nadine Wendell-Mojica: 'Post No Bills' Over This Beauty!

I'm continually impressed and inspired by Nadine's character studies... her latest gift to me was no exception:

Nadine admirably finds reason to detail the people and characters that she comes in contact with or with whom she interacts on a daily basis.  In this respect, she is no less of an artist than a photo documentarian.  I wish I had that kind of inspiration--to think that intrepidly about my fellow human beings through the meditation of drawing them.  It is all most of us can do to go to a figure drawing studio once in a blue moon to practice our craft and focus on the beauty of one model.  Nadine finds the time to "discover" people throughout her day, and I'm betting that such a meditation gives her a unique perspective on the beauty inherent in everyday people and their everyday lives, their everyday struggles, celebrations, fears, endurances--a perspective on the real human condition.

I so love getting your miniature meditations, Nadine!  Thank you!

Also included in Nadine's envelope package was a little prize ticket... everyone ought to be awarded one of these!!!

Thom -- do you know the 'eats shoots and leaves' thingy? Val

Really? They look so heavy lidded and deeeeeep! I wonder if this piece is referring to the end of a prison visit, they look so full of pathos.

Val, that's like the overdone joke in the U.S. about yellow diamond-shaped traffic signs around school zones that read "SLOW CHILDREN"... They tragically are not punctuated grammatically, thus countless comics retort, "That's not very politically correct calling those children 'slow.'

Isn't that cool, Vizma? That is just the shading that Nadine did--a real trompe l'oeil effect!

Great art!

(There is a sign in the UK that reads 'Bill Stickers Prohibited'. The response to this -- often in the form of a small bill stuck to it, ha, ha -- is, 'Why? What has Bill Stickers done now?')

Are the eyes cut out? They look like they have shadows on the eyeballs! Love this!
