Destroy a Flower and Draw!

Four Dahlias

Dahlias from Fran (click on image to enlarge)

You don’t need any art supplies to draw. Go on. Try it. smear a little more coffee on that coffee ring stain.  Take your pen and add a few strokes. Coffee is such a beautiful color. It smells good too.

When I was in Egypt I was sketching  and dipped a stick into a small bottle of  brown ink that I had in my backpack.  I got back to the hotel and noticed my sketch book smelled strange. I had mistaken a bottle of Echinacea for walnut ink and made a drawing with it. I brought the herbal remedy along to  boost my immune system and reduce the severity or length of a cold.

The herbal drawing of the Temple of Luxor has kept it’s color. It’s kept its  smell, too!

Dip your finger in that glass of red wine, pat it on a piece of paper. Any curry powder around?

It’s All About Scary Skeletons on Halloween – Walt Disney

in the streets

While playing around in Lightroom editing the sketch I made after one of my Pilates sessions, I thought of that song, Dem bones, dem bones, those dry bones. Hunting for the lyrics on the internet, I got sidetracked. I found this  super little movie Walt Disney produced in 1929. Skip the commercial and stay long enough to watch the skeletons dance :)
