A bit of doodling and art
from the past few days.
The quote above says it all...
i sometimes feel like i've lost my bliss or my groove
when i go days or weeks without feeling creative.
But lo & behold - it always shows up, eventually.
Maybe that's what it's all about.
Not expecting it to be there all the time.
Not pressuring it to be there all the time.i doodled this while watching tv...
can't remember what i was watching.
That's how important it was. ;-)
i was obviously listening more than watching. ;-)
i did this a few nights ago...
acrylic on paper.
in the beginning, i never know too much where it's going...
and then things start taking shape,
and i begin to see this or that...
here (above), i see a woman & a man
touching one another.
They are separate
yet woven together...
then i flipped the page upside down,
and i now see a mask...
then i flip it on its side,
and i clearly see a fisherman with a hat, on the shore,
fixing his net with fish jumping around...
(you may see something totally different -
that's what's so great about art!)
then a quick little marker drawing in my journal...mom's cookies...
these always make me sad.
i don't know why i kept her last box of cookies,
but i did.
it sits on my bookshelf in my blue room.
and then this handsome little guy... :-)
my son, when he was maybe 5 or 6
with his dad's hardhat & vest,
reading a magazine & eating dill pickle chips!
a simple black & white acrylic painting in my journal...
a few more details here & there,
using grey tones for the face.
added a bit of blue in the background only...
and a few chosen words... :-(
It makes me sad that he's grown up so fast,
but so proud of the wonderful young man
he has become.
As parents, we raise our children
in hopes that someday,
they will go out into the world with confidence,
and when they do -
we want them back with us. :-)
Such is life i guess.
Here's a song i stumbled upon and loved immediately.
i had no idea what he was singing.
You can find the english translation here.
Beautiful voice. Beautiful song.
Oh, and not so hard on the eyes, is he? ;-)
