I love listening to Blondie and drawing… the band gives me energy and takes me back. If I go too far, all I see are colors and waves of sounds. Sketched with pen, refined in pen, washed her and then poked some Prismacolor in her eyes.

COOL

The wind is stirring my dirt, with rain and scents in crisped and brown. You are here, time wound, now sprung. Floating delivery, you brought me here.

A happy warmth along my lips

Tick tock, tick tock… I get up at 05:00 each morning with a passion for coffee. Even my cup is precious, and wear this routine year-round.

I could say that my cup and drink are a happy warmth along my lips. I’ll leave it a that.

Dancing in the alley

Early in the morning, flowers dance in the alleys and know the sun is coming. It is toward their end this year. They know it, I know it and my dog knows its.

As usual, we are walking with somewhat different priorities. However, Ozzy (Australian Cattle Dog) knows that I like to sketch as much as he well… whatever he does and thinks. One thing is certain, the scents are attractive to both of us.

This is my second painting in my birthday book of handmade paper. It certainly slows me down, but it yields great fortunes and merry discovery. Each shadow I see reveals its own dimension. Do you see the pages and how they reveal themselves at the bottom?

Impressions

Often when I paint, I am reminded or hear music that felt good at one time or another. Today was no different and felt the hands and motion of Julee Cruise (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uKDetywgLb4). She is ethereal personified when her voice lilts down and over.

This triptych becomes inconsequential compared to Julee’s sky writing voice.

Not Sure

I’m uncertain about this image. It was painted on deeply pocked handmade paper from India. But, it was a much appreciated birthday gift from my best friend and wanted to try it out for size.

The image got ahead of me really fast with motion upon motion and deep swirls. Maybe if I look at it more, it will grow on m.
