Bright Ideas, Week 4

W16 5 8 BI MALA 01
I’m concerned about having drawn my mala because after drawing my thirty-year-old basket the handle broke.  But maybe after all these years it is time to replace my
broken-winged unconventional mala bead with a different bead…

W16 5 9 BI COMPASS 01
Okay, yes, I added RED ink color.  Rules are meant to be broken.

W16 5 10 BI PIPECLEANER HEART 01
I am a complete sentimental slob when it comes to the things my husband
gives me.  Seriously, I have several boxes after 18 years, and perhaps even he doesn’t know why I love this or that.  Most of all, I’ve saved silly post it notes…..

W16 5 11 WOLD HEART 01
I’ve tried finding where Marilyn Wold ended up; I can’t find her,
and don’t even know if she is alive.  Amazing paper maker, amazing teacher.
I spent several weeks with her and it changed my art.

W16 5 10 WHITE ROCKS 01
Rocks tend to follow me home.  You can see them trailing behind me as I walk.

W16 5 7 TOES
One of two of the most beloved cats ever, Toes aka Trouble aka Lucifer.
On any day you could hear me yelling “Do you have a death wish?” as he was the most deliberately trouble=making cat anywhere, smart as a whip, and my best buddy.
Saved my life too.  Another story for another time.  This was his favorite fetch toy.

All these images are sketched in the Bright Ideas journal with Platinum Carbon pen,
Lamy Al-Star with De Atramentis Document black ink,
White Uniball Signo pen, Fat white Pitt pen, and colored pencils.

    Simple things with powerful memories and associations. Isn’t it fascinating how seemingly unassuming objects are more important to us than things that, in monetary terms, might be worth so much more.
    I get that rocks follow you home, because feathers follow me!

    • Yes.
      I know how that is: the first time I picked up a rock with a person I didn’t know in tow and she asked why I was picking THAT rock up (“not very pretty”) I told her that it wanted to be my kitchen rock. My brothers think I am certifiable. Must. Draw. Kitchen. Rock!
