dark & light



I just love the bare skeletal branches this time of year,
how, on a sunny day, the air is crisp and feels unpolluted...
just by being outdoors your senses are uplifted, so you return home energized and ready for the day





ha, after weeks of switching between fiddling on the laptop building my website and patiently stitching the BirdQuilt, I felt the urge for something quick and got to painting and drawing in East-Indian ink, my favourite medium in high school: I used to draw black&white birds with my Schaeffer fountain pen; I must try and find where I stashed them

I love the curly tails, long legs and big eyes and, because of these, know these creatures very well. More, more!

I've long been a fan of your Bremen-town musicians ... love the loose lines and soft colors in this latest iteration ...

Dana said...

What charming animals and birds! I love the loose loving eye and hand that produced them.

the light is just so great Mo, on a sunny day that is; today it's coming down in buckets, no fun at all!
thanks Dee, they really lift me up and draw me into storytelling
I'll do my best Patty

a couple of folks on Instagram have asked me about the Bremen-connection Liz, I must read the story again....never been there btw (good to have a like-minded fan, every time I visit your new place I see more & more to enjoy!)
