I am not usually too far out of the visual artist circles when it comes to browsing blogs. Quite by accident, I have recently been getting hooked on two blogs that have nothing to do with pencils and paintbrushes and the smell of turpentine.
The first one is Rock Paper Scissors. She has an adorable etsy shop and you can buy her books on her website. Theresa has been journaling her thoughts and experiences with "A New Earth". I like how she gives a small window into how she is working things out. I find myself thinking "Me too!' as I read her posts.
The second website is Nardeeisms. This is one of the most unique blog concepts I have come across. She writes about her daily life and gives each day a song that corresponds. Her writing is fresh and her ability to tell a story is delightful. A small dose of Nard in the morning with a cup of coffee and I find myself singing the day through. I am completely addicted.
Now that I have added these to my blog lineup, let me go sing a song and draw something.
A New Earth, Blog, Eckhart Tolle, self help, Tolle
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
A closer look at the same pose. I notice that #art is a lot like writing. The rough sketch is the idea. The second sketch is like the initial edit. The more I draw the same #sketch the more solid the ideas become. I bet the pros know this, but I am just discovering the power of a redraw. #art #artist #sketchbook #drawingvia Instagram
