A couple of hours sitting sketching while I nibbled on a lunch feeds my soul and thus my desire to be creative.
I try to carry the beauty and the quietness with me as I go through my days.
Sitting quietly sketching is akin to meditating, the mind is quiet, attentive to the details in the moment.
I need only refer to my journals to remember the moments.
Once back home after a couple errands, I was determined to squeeze in a little studio time.
It seems like I’m progressing at a turtle’s pace (it is my chosen totem). Using Neocolor II crayons I added some transparent color to deepen the color on the stitched monoprint. On the right side background I used a purple and a light green. On the left I used a medium blue on the fern. The color plus black stitching really makes the prints pop.
Someday I will lightly quikt it and make a pyramid bag.
Another piece that is slowly progressing is my waterfall. I finished the rocks, I think, and added more to the waterfall including a few scraps of white lace with tiny flowers. There are only a few and one would need to be close to notice. I like the wee bit of whimsy.
Next, to finish some of the foliage, the foreground pool and a few touches here and there.
