I have a friend who loves sunflowers and see them while walking my neighborhood with Ozzy. While his leg is in a perpetual state of lift, my eyes are always observing and wondering how to illustrate.
They are in my mind’s eye.
They are tall, don’t think they have a scent and, complicated. Next time, I will concentrate on the intricate center, the heart of the beast. I may try a gouache for a more opaque, graphic background.
We turn around and find pinholes,
water streams of light,
and took our lives.
With sounds of snorts
am I searching,
in this season of
upon them long
that stole our loves –
Give back our dreamers.
Lend to us more – for years

… I’m drawing chairs (deck chairs) tonight. That’s a good thing, because I haven’t in a month or two.
Ashley posted her interpretation earlier – (https://syncopatedeyeball.wordpress.com/2015/03/17/pretty-maids-all-in-a-row/) and have to say; I like.
It’s Spring, I hope. The one thing on my mind is getting out there, and getting busy. There are plants to bloom, grass soon to mow and dead leaves piled up in clusters.
I’m tired of winter and am celebrating Spring with a reminder that nature finds a way to live, to find joy in a simple bloom.
Okay, I am sketching more bananas. What are you going to do about it? This little baby was on it way to the garbage, when I decided to make some use of it. After an initial sketch, I peeled and then bit. Nasty sweet and not my style. I like them a bit on the green side. Anyway, I promise, no more bananas.
Apples are wonderful to sketch and turn me on. Their shapes are elusive and nothing is exact about the color, line or especially, the interior. They are another one of nature’s natural chameleons. Look closely. See. Taste.
