Time Out for Art: Does a Magic Carpet Need an Anchor?

Z, of Zeebra Designs and Destinations, took a bunch of us on a magic carpet ride during the full moon earlier this week.  And that got me to wondering if a magic carpet ever needs an anchor?  Just in case, here is one, drawn in charcoal pencil, as my submission for this week’s pencil drawings.  You can see the other entries here.

This style of anchor is called a plow, and is good for anchoring in sand, rocky bottoms, weeds, or grass, but it does not do well in soft bottoms.

  1. I’ve been working on a new area of the bodega floor and just stopped for a lunch break. of course i scanned the inbox and saw the title of your post — and i laughed!

    GREAT POST, amiga!!! yes, i think we should always take that anchor just in case we get caught in a crosswind from a comet or something!
