This is our living room lamp, sitting on my grandmother's table next to the tv. The Pittsburgh Pens got knocked out of the Stanley Cup playoffs, my life must go on, so I drew it on a piece of scrap paper on June 8 while watching the Blackhawks battling the LA Kings. I watercolored it and pondered its significance (zilch) the next day.
Why on earth did I then draw a ladybug? I'd never drawn one before and I was sitting next to Charlie on the floor, watching the above-mentioned hockey game. Despite the neck-and-neck battle for the Western championship, my husband fell asleep in his chair, the house was quiet, except for thousands of screaming fans, loud announcers and piercing sirens, and my team wasn't playing. I drew the ladybug and water-colored it the next day. Why? I haven't the foggiest.
Happy weekend from Louise!
