After a long (30+ years) hiatus, with fits and starts in between, I’m hoping to get back into Chinese ink painting. My dad has been trying to clear things out of his house and gave me many of his brushes, inks, and Chinese art books in hopes that I’d put them to better use than he did.
I plan to take this further along than I had previously–striving to make one small painting a day–but am worried that, in the end, I will disappoint him like most kids disappoint their parents.
And on that cheery note, here’s one I titled “Falling Petals” (9″x7.5″; 23cm x 19cm on watercolor paper). All these original paintings will be for sale for about $20 each, so let me know if you would like to purchase any! Contact form at http://teresarobeson.com
The prompt for day 27 is “Don’t put all your eggs in one basket.” I don’t have time for a poem today, so this will have to do.
The title is a nod to Firefly, the short-lived cult-favorite tv series. 🙂
On Saturday, I hung out with my neighbor-friend (our wonderful chicken-sitter) to make jewelry together. I was in a warm, earthy-tones kind of mood, I guess. I made 5 good things instead of “One Good Thing.”
I officially have more jewelry than I’ll ever wear and need to sell a bunch.
Doodle Day’s day 10 prompt is “beat around the bush.” And neither the poem nor illo are political! 😀 (Pssst, Russell, more bears!)
Have some fun
that can’t be beat.
Around the bush
with happy feet.
