Puppies And Poems

Cody With CowCody is an English Cream Golden Retriever who lives in England with my daughter and her family. For three weeks I stayed at their home and babysat this cute puppy. Wondering what I was going to do with myself while I took care of him, I gave myself an assignment: Learn how to draw a dog. Besides sketching, I wrote some prose and a few poems. Maybe there is an Artists’ book in the making. I have the images and the words. The next step is figuring out a structural form for a book. Then, do it!

Following a suggestion from Otto’s post, I took a walk.  http://munchow.wordpress.com/2014/09/09/diversify-and-become-more-creative/

Check out two of my favorite dots, Otto and David. I think you will will be pleased, then go take a walk.

A month ago I was painting 7 foot paintings about how I felt about the wars going on in this world, today. The paintings are waiting for me to come back to the studio. Meanwhile, I’ve been collecting dots, drawing trees, writing a little and following feathers down the street.
