Loobylu has started a "Friday Archives" meme. I really like this idea, after going through the trauma of losing most of my artwork from uni, high school and earlier in a flood, it gives me an excuse to dig out the stuff that survived. Looking around the kitchen I saw this drawing of my old cat "Rastus" circa 91. My first ever gift from Mr.BJ was a gorgeous wooden boxed set of coloured Derwents. (Now you know why I married him!) This is the first thing I drew with these beloved pencils.And I had totally forgotten about this ugly mug oil painting by a Frank Salisbury, which was under my "Rastus" picture in its frame.I always check under pictures in old frames to see if there is a masterpiece hiding underneath. So far, no luck! But I have "scored" really well a few times at the odd op shop.
