Green Hat

Pulled the gouache back out.  Here finding the "portrait" hiding in the shapes.  Something I used to do a lot with collage.

I love comics

What I wish I could do.  But realize is beyond my scope.  Still, it's fun to try.

Motherhood again

In honor of my dear daughter's birthday, a Mother and child from an early Flemish painting.   The original painting is so beautiful!

Blue World

Still playing with ordering the craziness of ink blobs.  Something seems to be happening here.   A real drama.

November Being

No thought in mind, this came out.  How November feels, often.   For the record, it felt cold and gloomy last week especially after the change of time.

Ink Blot Creatures

Last week it was doodles, today: ink blots.  The variations on the game are many.   This one adds the bonus of watching the ink spread on the paper.  So alive!

This is a game: finding the creatures hiding in random doodles.

Doodle Tree

Starting with a spiral (from Lynda Barrie's workshop) and going from there.  It's fun and relaxing.

When All Goes Well

Once in a while there is a day when all goes well.  Good sleep, good work, good news of Sam,  house clean and back not painful.  There was such a day last week, before lost package, bad sleep, worries about Sam, etc.  I'll look forward to next time.

To the Library

A happy moment of the day: the walk to the library.   Especially if a requested item is waiting for me.  So thankful for my library system.
