Morning, friends! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and were able to get some creative time into your life.
I was watching the Wizard of Oz last night and decided to do some sketching at the same time. I drew a few Dorothy and Toto sketches but nothing too exciting so I put down my sketchbook and really enjoyed myself watching one of my all time favorite movies.
I woke up this morning and drew this. I will be making her into a stamp (I promise she will be in one piece, I ran out of paper!)
I cant even tell you how many times I have seen it. I have been watching it since 2 years old. The first time I saw the wicked witch I ran behind the couch! She still freaks me out with that big green laughing close up scary face in the crystal ball! Holy crap!
Every time I see it I see something new, a background I never noticed or a bird moving around in a tree or a part of a costume I had never seen before.
I think I can recite the whole movie and all of the songs in my sleep I have seen it so much. But the best memory is watching it with my Dad. He passed away in 1994 on October 14 which is why I think about him so much this time of year. It is one of my most happy memories with him!
I hope you love it as much as I do. My favorite line of all is when the Wizard is giving the Tin Man his heart and says, "A heart is not judged by how much you love, but by how much you are loved by others." I am getting teary eyed, I just love that line so much, its so beautiful.
I would love to hear your favorite part or line in the Wizard of Oz. Do you love it like I do?
