Inktober: Bear Dancer

life in balance

I lost my rhythm for doing an ink drawing a day 
for Inktober

life sometimes has a different plan
nice to be sketching again

    The balance in life ...
    Wonderful metaphor, wonderful drawing.
    A hug, dear Tammie.

  2. Just wonderful, I need some of that balance just now! Hugs, Valerie

  3. I love that! So cute!

  4. I do like the friendly smiling bear and the heart shaped leaves, beautiful delicate art.

  5. nice drawing, very cute :)

    sometime we just need a break from drawing and making any art, and the break can do good thing for our creativity :)

  6. I would been the same, I don't think it's easy to create every single day but missing a day or two is no big deal.

    cute drawing!

    have a lovely day.

  7. I LOVE this drawing VERY MUCH!!!


    Beautiful you make a new ink-drawing after some interruption coming from living life :)

    A question: Do you make these drawings directly - or do you first make them with pencil? I guess you make them directly with ink, but it's nearly impossible to find such balanced lines without making some "mistakes" or black spots...

  8. hello Dori,

    Thank you for your message, visit and question.
    Occasionally I do draw straight with ink.
    But most of these I have been doing with pencil first and there is plenty of erasing ;-)
    Some times i still make lines off the pencil guide that i wish i could change, but i figure that is just life, let it be, share anyway.

    wishing you a lovely night of sleep!

  9. Hello All,

    @ Eider: so glad you enjoyed and thank you for mentioning the metaphor.

    @ Valerie, wishing you balance.

    @Laura and Sheila, thank you.

    @Jennifer Rose, yes, sometimes a break happens and it is fine to go with what is.

    @ Lissa, thank you for the no big deal. I was fine with it, but was energized by manifesting art daily.

  10. A wonderful drawing.
    Your bear is amazing.
    I love the tree too!

  11. Ha Tammie, what nice if your life is in balance !!!
