Oh the irony. Also I learned something yesterday

Well, I’m closing in on the end of my autumn picture. As there is snow blowing past my window. See, this is one of the unfortunate things about the fact that most images take me a couple of days to do. When I started it was all colorful outside. But, alas, my art can’t keep up with the changing of the seasons. Isn’t that a flattering thought.

But if it is any consolation to… myself I guess, I have also started that other idea I talked about yesterday. I don’t know if it’s a keeper yet, but at least the eye looks great.

On a different note, I read a magazine artical on Lloyd Alexander. Apparently he died in 2007. I didn’t know that. One of my favorite authors died and I didn’t know it. The same thing happened with Dianna Wynne Jones. But it was lovely reading about him. And, as always, looking at his face. It is the very picture of Fflewddur Flam. Which is quite the accomplishment, I know of only very few faces that remind me of fictional characters whom I have never seen before. In fact, I’m pretty sure his is the only one. Anyway, I enjoy Lloyd’s books, particularly the Prydain Chronicles. I’m still waiting for somebody to make a live action movie adaption. That would be pretty great. After all, there have been live action adaptions of The Lord of the Rings and Narnia books, so the Prydain Chroncicles ought to be next right? Cheers for high fantasy literature.
