in the far off distance
she found a light

much like the light within her heart
which gave her wings
to fly

Her Gentle Gaze

her gentle gaze

the colors in first image are fairly accurate
it is hard to photograph art on this dark evening
days grow shorter as we move towards winters Solstice

Fairy and Friends

at my wooden ceiling
i noticed a fairy
sitting on a snail
well that got me out of bed and sketching


inspiration can be found in endless ways

may you walk in beauty

Medicine Man

spirit of a medicine man
with feathers he did dance
he pranced
for he knew he was a wonderfully unique
the sort that brought magic to all he did meet
a treasure for any who he may greet

I have been putting original art 
in my Etsy shop
let him be your lucky charm

Election's Eve

as a dear friend replaced my plumbing today
i found myself drawing a Buddist monk

in meditation
i thought about our country
the USA 
our election tomorrow
 my heart leans towards all hearts
may we consider the best path
for all life
on planet earth
may we consider paths that support life
of trees
 of flowers
and critters
all people

may peace and health and love
reign on earth
with love,

Sunday Sketches

I remember when i began drawing
and painting

sketching seemed challenging
i felt i needed to know how to draw 
to create a sketch

i felt that a sketch was a zen like piece of art
a skilled person 
could make something interesting from a simple line
or lines

now i love sketching
i love trial and error
i do have a 'bit' more skill
and sketching freely is satisfying
