Calling the Inner Child...

This was suppose to be a weekly drawing for a class that I am taking.  But the theme and a bigger canvas decided differently.  The class's theme for the week was, ' letting out your inner child when you are being creative'  (and the rest of the time is good too as per my opinion)...and instantly I had an image of the herald calling out our inner children.

My 'blue orb' that I use so much is the spirit-the heart of us all.  My children are calling for their creative spirit to fly and be honored.

Have a few tweaks and it will be considered done. It was a fun one to do.

Online class started....

 So...signed up on the internet for a year long class!  That means that I will be painting and sketching pretty regular for 365 days.  Really enjoying the stimulation and interchange with the 59 other participants.  The focus on the class so far has been 'our marks' and connecting with our own creativity/voice.  I have no theme or set goal for this work so it is very freeing to just fly with what images that come to mind.   The sketchbook is the most fun part because the drawings are one day affairs.  Life is good...however, I think/know I have a big black skink in my studio!  Hoping it will starve..or escape.

Have been visiting Middle Earth lately....

So...a neighbor's son asked me if I would do a game board for  him and his friends.  Of course, I said yes.  Two days later he arrives at my doorstep with a 4'x4' piece of plywood!  Oh my.  He and his friends have been busy building a life size hobbit house this summer and have created a board game.  How cool is that????

I have been having a blast doing this project and it takes me 'out of my box', which is a very good thing.
This is not done yet, but I am working my way to the top.  The right hand corner will have a dragon curled around the perimeter of the board.

This and wonderful visitors have keep me rather busy for the last 3 weeks.  Hope to finish this in the next 5-6 days.  Then onward to other projects.....
