Don’t Just Do Something, Sit There!

nostalgiablog.jpgNostalgia is what I called the wistful dreamer in this piece. Homage to the days of staring out the window in history class, wishing you could be anywhere else.

Replacing the verb ” to do ” with the verb ” to be “. Not an easy thing for denizens of the 21st Century. Not when you can’t sit still long enough to create a shadow! Just a reminder that it’s ok sometimes to just sit there and not do anything.

Audience participation is appreciated now. Offer up a suggestion of what she might be waiting for and if it’s better than what I can think of ( as yet, nada ) I may include it in the painting. Seems there’s a theme here of sitting on one’s duff. Aha- the perfect bloggers position.

    I sense skepticism. She’s skeptical of some other person trying in vain to do her mastered skill. The craft: Pottery.

    She is waiting for the Bush Adminstration to leave Wshington. Brava!

    Judith- so far, yours is the winner. I’d need the Sistene Chapel to paint that big an epic. It made me laugh!

    she’s at ease with herself. she’s sitting because the next thing to do hasn’t presented itself. she’s completely comfortable sitting until it does. she doesn’t appear to be “waiting” so much as just “being.”

    The bus.

    I know her! I was trying to register our car. I was #27, they were on #12. I had already heard “we no take checks, no credit cards, just cash or certified check” at least ten times. Judge Judy was on the 10″ TV. It was hot and the benches were killing me. I organized my purse, tried to program the speed dials on my phone, borrowed someones newspaper. She was just “waiting” and was “waiting” when I left.

    If Leonardo had pastels you COULD be accused of being derivative. But he didn’t and you are not!! Boy your work is evolving…….
