Doodling the alphabet one letter at a time

Keeping it Simple

rhythmic doodling…swirl, twist, half circle, straight line ,dip, scroll, dot…melodic, contemplative, simple, sweet, like ice skating at night under a full moon ..whooosh whooosh…

remembering embroidery..in out in out, twist around needle,  pierce fabric, french knot!… pierce fabric, turn hoop, in out in out, satisfaction…

so simple


Homage to Laurel Burch

Experimenting on black paper with colored pencils, I was reminded of the rich tapestry-like and tropical designs of Laurel Burch. I was saddened to discover this remarkable artist passed away a year ago at 61 from complications of osteoporosis.

From her website: I live within the vivid colors of my imagination … soaring with rainbow feathered birds, racing the desert winds on horseback, wrapped in ancient tribal jewels, dancing with mythical tigers in steamy jungles.

If you want to learn more about this remarkable artist and her vision, be sure and read her obituary here.

In the meantime, I will continue to be inspired.

So, what artists inspire you?
