"Time Travel" ©Sandra Jessop, Watercolor&Ink 6x8"
I admit, I had trouble with such a broad topic and didn't like any of my initial ideas. I even asked my son for help, hoping for inspiration. I kept thinking of The Time Machine, Dr. Who, and Back to the Future. I couldn't figure out how to make it my own.
One night as I tried to fall asleep, this image started swirling around in my mind. I was both thrilled and annoyed. I was happy I finally had an idea I liked, but irritated at the timing because I was exhausted and just wanted to fall asleep. However, I did not get out of bed to draw it, but determined I would remember.
I'd say I'm pretty happy with the finished piece, if I ignore my super critical inner voice. (She's so picky.) The steam punk vibe is not something I've tried before, but I might try again. The research was fun anyway.
