“Jutta and the Blue Tree”
Dinah at More Idle Thoughts is heading a great sketchbook exchange that is going around the world. 8 artists have created their own sketchbook, and each has been sent to the next artist in the exchange and so on. We each draw a page and attach it to the previous artist’s page. In the end, our own sketchbook comes back with 7 new pages each created by a different artist. It’s nearing the end of the exchange and here is my contribution to Frankie’s book.
For those of you in the exchange reading this, my order is a little off, I was to do Dinah’s before Frankie’s but had a little mishap with my page to her (a result of some overly aggressive penwork) so I’m redoing it. It’ll be the next one to post.
Jutta, in Estonian folklore is the queen of the birds. I’ve been doodling different versions of her lately. She fits in so nicely with my bird nerdiness, my love of mythology and my middle age need to explore my heritage.
