Allow the line and your life to emerge with a slow pen.
Beauty in contrast
Evening into morning light
Starlights of color.
Blown from molten silica
Flash of prism’s light.
Drawing a new line
To emerge without effort
Allow the color.
Glass is a fluid. Stained glass windows, centuries old, are thicker at the base. The glass, ever so slowly, flows. When we take the time to slow our minds and lives, a strong base of color and light will emerge.
I love to doodle. I love to paint. I love to write. I am fascinated by using them all together to create one.
My doodling began when I was teaching watercolor painting on cruise ships. I had quite a bit of extra time. I wanted to draw without the expectation for successful renderings. So I doodled. Made many (many!) random abstracts. I always started with a circle.
I began to paint doodles. I soon realized that my brain always wanted to find a picture and a story. I decided to write Haiku for each. Within each Haiku I have included thoughts on Art, Life, and The Artistry of Life.
