Sitting on the bank of the river, Pip confesses more of his true feelings to Biddy about his life in the forge. He asks Biddy if he’d have been good enough for her? She replies, ” Yes, I am not over-particular.” This is a stab at him because he is unintentionally hurting her feelings by implying that she is not good enough for him. He doesn’t see this because he is so smitten with Estella. He admits to Biddy that he wants to be a gentleman FOR Estella.
I created this black and white sketch also on a board book page. (It is attached to the previous day’s art on a board book. So I guess I am making another Altered Book piece of art!) The silver charm in his right eye has LOVE carved into it. He’s blinded by love and can’t see how Biddy feels for him or how he’s hurting her. I don’t feel so sorry for Pip any more!
My next piece will be on DAY 100!
