I honestly was trying to come up with a good title, and nothing came to mind. I got to thinking about how my timeline on Facebook is loaded with insightful messages, that are pretty repetitive and useless. You know them, the inspirational ones, with backgrounds of sunsets, seashores and nature in general. So, I decided to cut it out, and not put anything insightful instead.
That brings me to, (I don’t know why it does) my weekend of drawing. Yesterday, it was a hot, humid day…made for sitting inside and drinking iced coffee or something stronger. So, I did this drawing, “A Shrubbery Composition”.
Not particularly insightful, but hey, you gotta keep at it.
We did go for a ride, and ended up in a town park…beautifully natural, and very few people. Rare these days. Drawings will be coming up.
Yes, it’s been a while. Topsy Turvy winter into spring…kind of chaotic, don’t want to go there.
But still, I’ve had a revelation, I’m more a healer than an artist. So, I’m going to start my Reiki practice again.
But no, I’m not giving up art. It means so much to me, and to many other people. I am, however, going to try to get my ego out of it. That means, back to the intention of making joyful, healing art..without worrying whether it’s a deathless work of art.
So, I realized what I mean by paradises now. They’re gardens! Flowers and plants in a harmonious composition.
So, with that…remember this picture from last year?
I decided to do a complete drawing of the garden in the reflection. Haven’t gotten a name for it, but it doesn’t really matter. Maybe I’ll be an egoistic artist, name it Garden 1, to mystify people. Anyway:
