I truly heard God say once, Just "not yet."
It helps you think.
Sometimes some really cool things can come about.
And you never know where they will lead.
Here are some sketches from this last weekend.
I'm loving my coffee folks. Made three more today. It takes two or three days to make one. Gotta tape up the paper, pour the coffee, let it dry into designs, iron the paper; and then and only then you get out your pen and ink!
This is Coffee Dude #1, Adrian. I think he's pretty cool.
I poured some coffee onto a piece of taped watercolor paper.
I let it dry.
Then, I looked at it again and found him.
I used one of my loved fountain pens and my Noodler Waterproof Black ink and drew him in.
He's for sale in my Etsy shop.
I really like him! I plan on making more Coffee People.
Will they be liked by others?
I have no idea.
So I picked up the graphite pencil this morning while my two youngest kids ate breakfast. I did both sketches in a couple of minutes.
I love this piece, but don't think I can sell it on Etsy. The technique is totally copied off from one of Carla Sonheim's pieces on her site. She is a genius!
These paintings are what I worked on today -- a bunny, a girl, a butterfly and a wombat.
You don't see a wombat?
He's on the floor in my sketchbook and in my head.
I am thinking about writing a story about a flying wombat.
I never knew what a wombat was until I adopted my youngest who, although she was born in Guatemala, lived in Australia for a time and had a stuffed wombat with her when my husband brought her home.
I've never seen one in person but wombats look awfully cute in pictures.
Why a bunny, a butterfly,a girl and a wombat?
I have no idea.
