Poise Rises from Within


 

He stands on his toes
Poise rises from within
Planted similar to a mushroom
Rooted in the earth
Crown nearing the heavens
Though he is an elf
His prayers are for all humans

Resting calm

 

Up on the blue mushroom she attracted a blue bird. 

As the sun set, the horizon turned a soft blue too. 

Flower buds folded their petals and lay their lovely heads to sleep for the night. 

All hearts in the land began to find a resting calm.

chestnut backed chickadee

Loving King

 

 

The king is thin due to sharing his food with the village people
His clothing worn and shoes with holes because they were not important or on his mind
He carried water from the well for those with thirst
He is a loving king that puts his people first, in every thought and every deed
Not only is this his duty, but also the beckoning of his heart
The task of a loving king is to be the best father possible 

To care for all his people
~


I have often wished that leaders of any kind put their people first, like the best father a person could dream of. I debated it being a queen or king an queen. But the first image that came to me was a king, so I went with it. 

There may be more on this theme to come.

Inner Realm


 she discovered

with her mind silent

body still

heart open

her inner universe 

opens to her

 I used Arches 140 HP paper

It was nice to paint on,

but the paper buckled. I will need to flatten it, which is fine. 

I do prefer paper that does not buckle.

Last Inktober piece


 

On Samhain he stepped into the woods to visit the tall cup fungi. 
Low and behold, a tiny fairy was there, tossing spores into the air.
 

 
 
It was fun to let Inktober inspire art.
I hope I am in a rhythm now and will continue creating.

I hope you all enjoyed Halloween 
and 
are embracing the shorter days 
colder weather
and lovely autumn light
 
I am

In Her Happy Place


 in her happy place

I couldn't get the scanner to get accurate colors with this painting.

A photo did better. 

It is in a art journal and I risked it and painted this on a page that I really like the painting on the other side.

Lucky that both pieces survived the wet watercolor layers. 

here it is before the painting:


~

Our autumn has turned snowy! 

With zero F this morning! 

3 weeks of glorious warm autumn days

and bam, autumn snow! 

It is quite beautiful!

I can feel the spirit of hibernation beginning to overtake me. 

I kind of like it.

Forest Bathing

 

Under the big round moon, cuddled up to the tree, she opened her energy to meld with forest and light. A peaceful and rooted stance, healing and vital.

Soul Witch

 

The broom flew all over the universe in search of it's soul witch. 

For a broom without a witch is a sad thing indeed. 

Perhaps you know a witch who has not found it's soul broom?
