Breath of Life


she closed her eyes 
raised her hands to the sky 
began to sway
 feeling the breath of life

Tiny Houses


A tiny house
made in a porcini mushroom
perfect
for the wee folk

then 
watercolors

Remembering Summer

another piece for inktober

years ago a friend took a photograph of me laying in the grass
it brings back the peaceful feeling
every time I look at it

wishing you peace

Scribble Picnic


Michael at Scribble Picnic gave us a shape to use in art this week:


at first I thought to use it in a tribal design

when I set pencil to paper
these little houses came to life

art is endlessly amusing to me that way
as though it has a mind of it's own

Thank you for hosting Michael

to see what others created wth this shape

Fantasy Fungi


so fun to do another fantasy mushroom piece

autumn is the big season for fungi
but so far not many spotted 
it was a drought summer
we have gotten a bit of rain
so they might appear yet

another piece for InkTober:

Another Ink drawing


dancing man
bones of a tree during the day
comes to life as a dancer at night
 

inspired by this photo from a hike I did a couple weeks ago on a camping trip
the trail is called Scenic Point and takes one high
into the mountains
to the sky
with amazing views
and 
once upon a time trees

Scribble Picnic: Blanket


the night forest was 
lit up
by the light of the full moon
wrapped in a blanket
to keep the autumn chill from her bones
she walked through the night

I wandered in the mountains and saw this beautiful
sunrise

InkTober 2017


This is my 3rd year to join InkTober
one ink drawing a day for Octobr. 
I find it to be a great challenge,
ink pouring onto the paper each day. 
Never know what will appear. 
So fun.

It is so beautiful now!
The colors:
