Or whatever floats your boat in early February. I’m very glad to see the sunshine returning.
I’ve got my recent drawing of the tree with the heart carved in it, stuck in my mind. I like the idea, but not the result. I think I’m going to try it again, but with a bit more, shall we say mindfulness, as to what I want to convey. It does seem like a good late winter/early spring piece.
I like hiding hearts in drawings, for instance, in this. Speaking of hearts, and late greetings for holidays…here’s an early one! Happy Valentines Day
I haven’t posted in a while, because of turbulent times in my personal life. I’ve been laid off from one day job, and I’m starting another. We went for a few days in snowy weather without heat in the condo complex. And generally, my creativity quotient has been at zero.
But in that time, a major yearly event passed. For Christians, it’s Candlemas, for almost everyone else, it’s Ground Hog Day. For Pagans, it’s Imbolc, which celebrates the very first, early signs of the approach of spring. Yes, spring is coming, I see it in the returning longer days, I feel it in my bones. Time to kiss this rotten winter good-bye.
So, I mustered the dregs I have of creativity at the moment, and did this drawing I call “Groundhog Day”. I hope you enjoy it, and I hope it won’t be as long before I have another drawing to post.
A day or two late, I guess, I finally finished “Making Peace with January”. So I’m late. Big deal. At least it’s still winter.
The reason why I’m late is there has been a lot going on in my non-virtual life…mostly good. Mostly. The rest well…I can deal. But I’m back to my art, and back to my healing, and looking into all sorts of options right now.
So, here’s “Making Peace with January”. “Making Peace with February” is in the planning.
So belated Happy Groundhog’s Day, Imbolc, Candlemas….or whatever you celebrate. I like February, it means the beginning of baseball spring training, which to me is the sign that spring really is right around the corner!
