Good morning peeps.
Yesterday on my morning walk, i saw this beauty.
Well, not this exact one - but a blue jay nonetheless.
So last night, i did this -
a quick little pencil sketch in my journal...
Then some watercolour...
Not too happy with what was supposed to look like
sunlight and shadow - especially the top part.
It looks like he's wearing a little blue fur coat. :-)
i kinda like the little legs... :-)
a bit of green for the background,
to make the light on his stomach more obvious.
A bit of writing,
and a photo taken in natural light, this morning.
The writing reads as follows:
During my morning walk,
i saw this. A blue jay.
In mid November.
I watched him for a while
and then continued on my way.
Until I saw a rainbow,
from end to end.
I stood in my tracks,
since the sky was clouded,
but without rain.
And for a moment,
with my eyes towards the skies,
I believed the universe
really was on my side.
I don't always believe the universe is on my side.Now you know i'm not always the optimist.
And then, my morning green smoothie.
I know, it's not green,
but it's filled with spinach, celery, carrots and berries,
so yeah, it's green to me.
Some of you may think this is too dark a subject
for morning reading,
but it makes sense to me,
considering my world at this time.
Understanding something often leads to acceptance.
I think we shy away from this too much.
No one is untouched by death,
we avoid discussing it
like we avoid the plague.
I believe science and nature
have so much to teach us,
if we're only brave enough
to open our hearts to our surroundings...
love and hugs to all of you.
Thank for sharing this space with me.
