The Oracle today was short and sweet.
wander into this sea-leaving
let the soul walk a spiral path
be the seed of moonlight
tendriled between secret vines
A couple of dancers. The second one is my daughter who would only hold the pose for two seconds.
A couple of family portraits. This first one is me and my daughter.
Husband sat for me. I think this looks like him although a bit gaunt. I’m limited right now to drawing/colored pencil but last night at Staples found some skin tone drawing pens.
A couple of quick drawings.
A dream drawing.
And some magnetic poetry.
All in all a pretty productive weekend.
A WordPress tradition. Here’s my rendition of one of my favorite birds, the owl.
And just because he/she appeared next door, here’s a shot of a turkey vulture eating some squirrel sushi.
Not a drawing but too good not to share. Have a great weekend!
A Florida boyhood. My great-nephew walking down a wooded path. He’s a cute little guy even from the rear.
ProCreate sketch printed and then drawn over. I’m still not set up for painting so this little trick is good. I especially like the sky in this one. That’s all ProCreate. The more I do it the better I get. Still not really scratching the surface; this app is huge.
Warmer today in NJ and hope it stays that way.
The Wonder Bread factory in Paterson. When they baked you could smell the aroma across town. Schools used to tour the factory and they’d give you a mini loaf.
The ProCreate version. Printed out on paper and messed with.
Girl playing the guitar on ProCreate and then printed and messed with. That is a pretty good replacement right now for now having a spot to paint.
Fooling around more with ProCreate. This one I did, printed it out in color and drew over it.
A sketch of some dancers out on a lawn.
A cold but welcome weekend here in Northern NJ. And as a bonus the sun is shining–always good.
Yesterday’s drawing colored in. I guess it’s why coloring books were invented.
Quick landscape (for Kerfe) in calligraphy pen, colored pencil and other stuff at hand. I’m still not set up to paint and I’m a bit frustrated. But sketching, especially if I can manage it every day, will give me painting material when I am set up!
Sketch just in calligraphy pen.
Pouring rain here in NJ, dog looking balefully at me. I’m not walking him right now. Peace out!
I started doodling with a ballpoint pen. I know artists have done some great drawings with ballpoints. Red tailed hawks are always a good subject.
Then I tried my calligraphy pen. I just got back into that due to doing a coworker’s wedding invitations. I was scratching around trying to get it to work; it finally did and I drew over/around/through it.
Doodle in fine line felt tip.
I still don’t have a painting spot set up. We’re shuffling things around in the house. I know I could theoretically paint at the kitchen table. Anyway, may put some color(ed pencil) on these.
Nina and I consulted the Oracle together this week. We did our art independently, but the Oracle is always watching.
Now out to look at the blood moon!
Diamond rain crushing
the sky with shadow wind,
bitter like an ache–
Blood singing of moon storms–
languid music so still…
I want an enchanted garden
of madness and mist
to whisper through beauty–
