That smile has brought me more joy
than a lifetime supply of dark chocolate.
That smile has brought me more warmth
than fresh socks out of the dryer on a cold morning.
That smile has come to give me a hard time
relentlessly picking at my nerves.
That smile has come to me when I needed it
without my asking, without warning.
That smile reminds me that there is laughter
and the world is amazing and kind.
That smile reminds me that success is abundant
without any fortune or fame.
That smile knows where to find me
when even I don't know where I am.
That smile smiles at me, the inside me
not just a title, a role or a name.
Got the under layer mostly blocked in. I will probably fiddle with it a little more and then add some color layers.
Eternal Wait - I finally quit fidgeting with this one. It is #graphite on 8.5x11 smooth bristol board. It is nice to get something to a finish. No matter where I roam in media, graphite will always be my true love. I will be taking this to #Shakedown3 this weekend if you want to see it in person. #art #artist #drawingvia Instagram
Toxic - This is a journal entry before words are added.The topic of toxic people has been coming up in many discussions lately. This is how I think it would look if you could make a visual image. This started as a simple form study and ended up as this. #journal #art #artjournal #selfcare #toxicpeople #getitoutofmyheadvia Instagram
Number 3 in my quest to complete #inktober2017 I started with an ink wash and then used my Microns to accent the details. This is definitely an experiment worth repeating. It reminds me of the interior illustrations in books when I was a kid It is #ink on #watercolorpostcard #art #artist #drawing #illustrationvia Instagram
