No Pens Today



It’s been a peaceful day. Got up early and repotted my jalapeno plants. This is my first attempt at doing jalapenos but my second at trying to do hot peppers. (First time didn’t turn out so good.) Then I made homemade granola. It’s almost all gone now because it’s been years since I’ve enjoyed a bowl of cold cereal. I don’t know why I hadn’t thought of this sooner but now that I have, I’m like a little kid again and I can’t stop eating the stuff. I’m sure I’ll pay for it later. All that fiber coupled with a stomach that doesn’t care too much for milk in any form is definitely a recipe for disaster.
After breakfast I retreated into the simplicity of line drawing. It’s the foundation of all my ink work but often times I enjoy it just as much and sometimes more than stippling/pointillism.
I laid out the line work for my third drawing of my Voodoufairy series. After which I felt like doing some more, so I grabbed my Moleskine and drew up this closed lotus flower.
Tomorrow I’ll bring out my pens but today I’m in the mood only for some graphite.

  1. I’ve so many art materials, and yet these days I prefer to sew. I never thought that would happen! I like your drawings. Good luck with the peppers!

      1. At the moment I’m working on art dolls. 🙂 Am designing some based on the fashions I wanted to wear as a teenager but couldn’t get into! 🙂 I also crochet.

        1. Art dolls sounds interesting. I don’t think I’ve ever seen one. Maybe I have but didn’t know it. My mother tried to teach me how to crochet when I was younger. Never developed a knack for it but I’ve seen others create some really nice scarves, hats and mittens.
