Musical of the Universe


born
with music in the pores of her skin
within her bones
&
even the threads of her hair 
are held the songs of the universe

4 inktense watercolor pencils
and an ink pen
~

the baby humming birds are growing up
their nest is stretching
due to the gossamer spider webs
it is made of:

absolutely brilliant!

Sage & Sepia


the magical realm of summer 
of nature
a glimpse
~

first i painted the page a light sage green
let it dry
drew a border in sepia ink, with a dip pen

drew the picture with masking fluid
let it dry
painted over the mask with a light wash of the sepia ink
then peeled the mask away

~
the two little hummingbirds are growing up
eyes still closed

and look the photo is in sage and sepia colors:

~

Kristin,

DC: Gossamer


in her dreams
the veil was open
she spoke with angels 

as the nights went on
her days became ethereal
and even her skin
radiated like gossamer silk
~

Thank you for joining in for our Drawing Challenge this week. 
participants will be sharing on their blogs
something inspired by the word:
gossamer

please visit:
My friend Annie found a hummingbird nest in her tree!
mamma hummer made the nest of lichen and gossamer spider webs
it is SO tiny



and look, two eggs



i read that they are made with gossamer spider webs
so that the web can stretch larger as the babies grow

now that is some smart engineering!
~
I hope you all enjoy a wonderful weekend
perhaps sprinkled with gossamer dreams
