News & Opinion: Twitter gifts
And then it happens. While skimming the tweets, something will jump out at me. This morning, @davidzinger wrote: Elizabeth Perry offers a 5 second tea break by looking at her drawing. I took the bait and clicked. And oh! I had started the day out exhausted from being up all night with my sick 4-year old, just longing for that first (and more) cup of coffee to give a little umph to my day. But all I really needed was looking at Elizabeth Perry's drawings to totally change my mood. Her sketch-book drawings are minimalist, sometimes just a couple of lines artfully drawn, but they are also evocative and lovely. @davidzinger had given me a Twitter gift, one that deserves to be re-gifted. Enjoy!
Elizabeth Perry's site, woolgathering, can be enjoyed here.
I particularly enjoyed her point of view with this drawing titled Folder, about which she writes: "Or mountain? I had some proofreading to do tonight, so it all depends on the point of view."
