Morning Glass of Water

On to morning steps with a glass of water. 
And the realization I have been doing this drawing-a-day for over 6 months now.  I could quit and feel a goal accomplished.  I think I will keep at it.  It is very sustaining.  I enjoy it and am still hoping it will unblock something in me.

Green Socks

Eventually one gets dressed.  If that involves lime green socks, it can be a very happy experience.

Once one is up, one might as well start the day.  Here is washing face.   (Not sure about using colored pencils on such a rough surface.  Maybe an extra watercolor wash would help.  But no time.)

Getting Up

Drawing on everyday life:  The daily victory: getting up!  (A theme I explored many years ago in many drawings and paintings.)

Marching Fool

The fool knows best:  keep going, no matter what.  A good weekend of rest will help!

A Tower to Climb

Playing with scale and the column becomes a Tower.

Dots and Stripes

For this 8th version of the 4 Trees, I chose some colored pencils that fell off my  pencil drawer.  A happy accidental color combination, I thought.

Walking Figure

Last weekend at Storm King, there were a few marching or walking figures.   The theme inspired me.

Leaning Columns

Leaning on loved ones gives strength.  With columns, with people.

Column Family

Good to take a long weekend off.  And good to be back too.  Here is a little variation on my columns.  Reminds me of playing with blocks!  Which was so much fun both as a child and as a parent.

Gathering Chi

Inspired from my very low-key and relaxing Tai-Chi class.  Just breathing and lifting the arms up sometimes help feel so much better.

4 Trees # 7

Another version of the 4 trees.   Drawing from my collection of found papers.  (I love finding a pattern or color I do not have yet on the inside of no-see-through envelops.)

Dancing Queen

After months and months of waiting, I finally have a go-ahead on some work.  I feel like dancing!

Strange and Spiny

A strange and spiny thing.  Not sure what I had in mind was quite like this.

3 Hairy Trees

At Omi recently, enjoyed many pieces.  Among them 2 groupings of 3 trees.  One  of them 3 black burned trunks.  The other 3 trees made of layers of flat strips, one white, one blue and one red.  I like groupings of 3.

Precarious Balance

Columns again.  Standing tall.  Some more stable than others.

3 Columns

I love columns.  I would love to see an installation with whimsical columns filling the woods (at OMI for instance.)   Some in groups, some solitary.  As with people.

Yellow Tower

I often find houses or buildings representative of the mind with their many rooms, nooks and crannies, hidden passages, bridges.  Why such an inaccessible door in this one is a bit of a mystery.
