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
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.
one of my wee friends:
chestnut backed chickadee
love it's little hairdo
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.
with her mind silent
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.
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.
