Benevolent Sun

scan0182Pretty sure she would never send harmful ultraviolet rays down on us, no sirree. This carved wooden plaque is just so cool. I got it at one of my local thrifty haunts. Not sure where it’s from but it looks Indonesianish to me. I want to hang it in my bathroom high up on the wall to look down and radiate warmth this winter. That’s the plan. The plan also was to do this in color but I was enjoying the pencil drawing so decided to go with it. Maybe I will give it another try in a different medium soon. It’s colorfully painted and has a smudgy, antiquey look to it. I keep thinking of that Beatles song, Here Comes The Sun. In fact, I can’t get it out of my head. And now you can have it running non-stop through your head. Hahahahaha. You’re welcome!

Tribal Bowl

late july 016Oh right, I have a blog! Sheesh. Sorry for making you wait so long in between posts. Need to get cracking here. I guess I’m going to have to break down and make a schedule which I am loathe to do. But maybe having a set hour in the morning that is drawing time would be just the ticket. After the crossword. I’ll let you know how that goes.

Isn’t this an unusual piece? I love the burnished wood and pointy-chinned, carved faces on this bowl. Which I found at a thrift store, natch. It looks like it’s meant as an ashtray but I can’t imagine putting out a cigarette in there and marring the beautiful wood surface with burn marks. Not to mention the fire hazard.

This drawing would be better if I finished it! Sometimes I reach a point in a drawing and don’t know what else to do to it or I tire of it or the light changes, it gets smudgy…etc. Sometimes I just have to leave it and maybe go back to it later. Or start fresh. Or move on. Be like a rolling stone…except that I LOVE moss…
