Because it was so beautiful out, I let Ebert's quivering nose guide us around and around and around in a local park, not caring that we were lingering forever in approxiamately the same 20 foot circle. I thought, it's as if I'm in a perpetual spirograph with him following the scent of squirrels and rabbits and birds that had frolicked here before him. It was o.k., though. I stared up at the deep blue sky, felt the breezes on my skin, smelled the fresh-cut grass, and let the earth's green seep into me as my feet followed an oval path of infinity.
Lordie, here's some Kenner Spirograph commercials from the '70's--they're just so GROOVY I couldn't decide which one to include--so here's two. Hilarious! O.K. now back out to this beautiful weather. I hope you had a wonderful summer, and I wish you an equally fabulous fall. (-:
I also loved Lite-Brite, Monopoly, Life, Rummy and Operation growing up, but that's another story. (-;
P.S. It's rare that I sketch things out anymore. I usually just start painting on the canvas, but for this one, I wasn't quite sure how to go about it. I actually first thought of this back in June (June 14th to be exact--on the first heavenly spirograph day), but put off doing until the last possible moment of summer for some reason. Here it is.
