safe-place

This is my safe place for mind and art. In this place, nothing invades unless I allow.

Understand?

What a perfect Sunday to paint and draw. The dog is by my feet, the bagels are in my stomach and the nap was excellent.

Inner Workings B

This is what the inner workings of an instructional manual looks like to me. Every one of them. One might as well blur it as well, because I can’t see the directions, fathom A. to B., and certainly can’t insert figure 1 into 5.

I am a “man-thing failure” and am okay with that.

Imagine little time to sketch, but long on desire. That’s what I had to work with.

Love it!

I sketched fast, smart and with dispatch as Captain Picard would have said.

Sitting in front of me, I heard the whisper, the call. Draw us.

Cha-Cha.

pots and pans

Challenged by a friend to draw the inside of a cabinet, I reluctantly opened several for “that cool perspective”. However, none really made me happy, until I started cooking dinner.

Voila!

Inside the cupboard was a masterpiece, several hanging precariously unbalanced. This was the last place I wanted to look and the first, worthy of sketching.

I used to have neighbors who banged their pots and pots on New Year’s Eve. Mmmmm, I think I’ll draw.

kojirushi

This is my Zojirushi coffee maker. It is slow and it makes my morning cup very much like a pour over. The big difference is that it warms the water.

I don’t.

There is something about the perfect cup of coffee any time of the day. It is the embodiment of good memories, a comfortable mind and all that is well.
