Illustration Friday - TRAIN

 
"Be quiet.  I lost my TRAIN of thought."

I know I can't be the only one that seems to regularly forget what I was thinking just the moment before.  The worst part is when I walk with a purpose directly to a cabinet or drawer and then for the life of me can't remember why I am there.  That's when I make the above face - where you try looking back into your brain for the answer. It isn't until I've gone back to where I started that eventually I remember again what it was that I needed, sigh. . .
Started with some pretty junk papers and sketched a girl and fingerpainted her face.  Look closely at my newest favorite paint stick (from Kim - thanks!!) - SHARPIE Mean Streak.  It is labeled as a waterproof permanent marking stick that can mark on wet or dry surfaces and is fade resistent, nontoxic and dries within minutes.

My train of thought derailed and crashed years ago. Beautiful work! :)

You might have lost your train of thought but you still created a wonderful piece of art. And thanks for the tip about the new Sharpie.
