Newsflash: I got to meet her ! !

Carla Sonheim is a Seattle artist whose playful approach to the creative process sheds formal artistic mores and succumbs instead to the raw joy of experimenting ‘sans’ expectations. Last night she had a book signing at one of Seattle’s great brick+mortar book stores, Third Place Books, promoting her just-released volume, Drawing and Painting Imaginary Animals.

Imaginary Animals

My own “play” this last three months is a direct result of her tutorials. What a thrill to meet her face-to-face! And, she’s local! (and she autographed my copy–with a critter!)

This is my sketch from her “hands on” assignment at last night’s event.

  1. That’s just how I feel after a long exhausting day.
    Nicely evocative of surrender verging on collapse.
