Bad Hair Day

Or Medusa turned upon herself.  Last week had many days of enemy-thinking.  Exhausting.

Letting the pen go freely on good watercolor paper.  Nothing in mind.   The pleasure of the pen scratching the paper, back and forth from green to brown.  The result reminds me of the underwater vegetation observed recently at Moreau Lake on a lazy afternoon.

Fool's Balancing Act

The Queen, the Fool, they are all doing it.  The ground may not be far but it is still a precarious balance.

Juggling Act

After the balancing act of last week, now comes the juggling!  Too many birds sometimes.

Little House on Hill

Another Little House.  Maybe prompted by my love of being home, happily occupied in daily activities.

Life: a balancing act.  The thing is to keep one's equilibrium.

Friend's Advice

I have such a good friend.   And I know to listen to her advice.  Sometimes.  Thank you, Laura.

Little House

I used to love drawing houses as a kid.  I still do.  Houses with trees.  And clouds and flowers.

Bat on Head

Here is Man with Bat on his Head.   Inspired by Edward Gorey via Gene's new tie.

The black birds are like so many little insecurities hiding everywhere.   And the garden grows regardless.

Demon of Fear

Meet Demon of Fear who can be hard to shake.  Fear of the unknown, fear of the future, fear of failure, fear for loved ones.

Demon of Anxiety

I love to draw monsters and demons.  It gives me an edge over them.  Anxiety was tough last week, though.

Flying Child

The child is on her way abroad.  With all the possible excitements and falls that entails.  Got to keep breathing...

The child is packed!  One check-in, one carry-on and one personal.  Made it.   They didn't count the birds.
