Thank God it’s Monday. I know that may not be popular among people who work Monday through Friday, but I have worked all weekend. I’m off tomorrow and Wednesday. So, I’m being contrary and what else is new?
I didn’t get much time to do artwork….but I am working on Making Peace with January. It features a seagull against a cloudy sky. My mother, who was always tuned into nature said seagulls only come inland when there’s going to be a storm. Her wisdom seems to be true. Again, though, seagulls are one of the few birds that are around here in the winter.
The idea was to have a white outline of a seagull against a cloudy sky. Well, in the sketch I did that….and it turned out horribly depressing looking. My intention is to spread good vibes, so a totally depressing sketch is totally….wrong. So, I quickly did some edges of light coming around the clouds. It’s smudged, it’s dirty, it’s done dirt cheap….but at least it will give you an idea.
I also made the seagull too large….looks like an albatross. More seagull like proportions to come.
