Little Brother

this one is still talking to me
why is there a little bear on her hand?

maybe because there is evidence of bears in our woods

yes, perhaps the little bear appeared in my art because they are
in my real life

DC: Dress

oh how i love dresses
they have tangible spirit
inspire movement, dance

i am a bit smitten 
with ink drawings too

to color 
or not to color
each time


this painting is reminding me of a time
when i hand washed my cashmere sweaters
and hung them in the woods

perhaps this is where the idea came from:

lovely Patrice is hosting DC this week
she chose the theme: dress
do visit her blog to find others inspired by dress

thank you Patrice!

What's Under a Witches Hat?

have you ever wondered
what is under that pointy hat
why does she wear 
a hat like that

well she is full
to overflowing
with the wonders of life
that is what tuning in is like
I think it might be good to ask for witches to remove their hats
so that the beauty within will rain down on us ;-)

it started with a page too big for my scanner of witches
in the bottom right corner this idea flowed in

and then the first sketch:

the owl is because of the owl that landed near my pond this week:

and then it jumped in!
So I continue to remember it's beautiful presence and it enters my art


I am sharing with Alexandra's Sunday Sketches

she knows who she is

this week i had a unique experience
i saw a big swoosh through the air, a great gray owl landed on a tree, then here on the ground, a second later it was in the pond, then up in the trees.... 
so cool to see it sitting on the ground and then jump in the water!
the photo was taken from inside and through a glass window:
