Sea turtles are my favorite animals...they are the perfect example of serenity, endurance and longevity.
This was one of the fastest creations I've completed...(under 30 minutes) I was actually agitated by the time I came home from work; it was only Monday and the week was off to a bad start. I started to brush color onto the paper with pastels and was surprised that I didn't use more forceful, abrupt and staccato strokes; the blue was very calming; long, flowing strokes became more smooth and round...before I knew it I had completed a background! The little turtle was created with watercolor. Take a deep refreshing breath...serenity now.
I was having pancakes for dinner the other night...yes, pancakes. My inspiration for this multi-media piece came as I slowly poured syrup over my pile of fluffy, delectable eats. Either I was sleep deprived or overcaffeinated...the slow gooey ribbon that dripped its way to my plate held my attention.
I really like this piece because it is composed of water color, pencil and acrylic.
Imagine a smoky lounge filled with people who came to drown there sorrows in whiskey. Then a blanket of silence falls upon the crowd as the curtains pull back and the Bluebird appears, glowing in the halo of the spotlight. The music starts and her voice fills the air. Everyone falls under her spell and for a few brief moments all their troubles fade away.
As the curtain closes, the Bluebird cries. Who's there to listen to her sorrows?
