What makes a monster.

‘The gravity of the earth is pulling me down.’, says Swamp Thing. ‘The best place to lay eggs?’ The slimy creature thinks as it watches you skipping rocks. ‘A host to houses my eggs, something warm and tasty.’ Swamp thing thinks as it silently slips into the cold dry air. Looking down at reflections in still eye. She smiles at you after your breath is gone, ‘What a happy nest this will make. I’m such a good mom.’ She smiles as you’re dragged under. Kinda grossing myself out with this one.

Alpharetta Scarecrow Sketches

The Alpharetta Scarecrow Event Sketches for the AIA Scarecrow for the 2017 Scarecrow festival. Getting help from the students and parents to make this Peace Plant. Lots of sketches and pairing this with lessons going on for ‘Peace Day’ lessons. The idea of ‘Peace Day’ was a big influence on this design and the inspiration for the ‘Solar Powered Peace Plant’. The school broke up into teams to create meaningful content around the idea of Peace on Earth. 1. Collecting and preparing items to be up-cycled. 2. Writing articles about what ‘Peace’ mean to them. 3. Talking pictures and collecting …

Getting sun in the pool

By the pool

List of things done and todo: Farmers market, Read cooking magazine by pool, Plan health meal for family and friends, Finish project with kids, Work emails, Send tax extension form. This is one of  the “sketches of spring” I will be attempting to make one a day, enjoy and share.

An AC malfunction, or a reason to get naked

It was hot

I came home early it was hot. Flicked controls on the thermostat. Nothing worked, which way is on? Heat cause it’s hot, that doesn’t sound wrong. Open a window, fiddled with the lock, left or right, it would not pop. Sweat, just a drop. That was it for me. I did care who might see. Flung coat and sweater over my head, shed skirt and tights passed my feet, now lounge bare to enjoyed the heat. This is one of  the “sketches of spring” I will be attempting to make one a day, enjoy and share.

New Suit

New Suit The first warm day, the air is clean. I was to long curled within, sun nibbles willing skin. I dip my toe, that’s as far as I will go. Nothing is getting wet. The suit I bought to match the lot, will wait till it is hot. I smile as the children play, enticing me to join the fray. From chattering teeth they shout ‘COME IN’, but it’s a bit too cold to swim.   This is one of  the “sketches of spring” I will be attempting to make one a day, enjoy and share.

Early

Fifteen minutes that’s all I get. Just time enough, time to sit. It’s just three take-five’s rolled in one. Early is on time for some.  Just me, my time to breath. I see a spot and feel the breeze. The sun warm on my skin, feet in sand the cool below. Alone but soon they’ll show, In my head I’ll greet them all, “Hello, and welcome y’all”. This is one of  the “sketches of spring” I will be attempting to make one a day, enjoy and share.

Fly go by

Fly go by Buzz buzz a nasty thing woke me from a sun filled dream. I saw a Fly go by, so I took my top off and sent it high. I pulled and pulled till the strings went twang then I launched at that tiny thing. It took a sec I used my eye aiming carefully down the line. The Fly saw me cocking back and almost had a heart attack. With a bit of a huff the fly began to fuss. “Me!” it said, “Oh no, why would you go semi-nude, just to swat this awesome dude”. This is one …

Fields of Flowers

 Fields of flowers Fields of flowers first pink and blue, I bought a suit that will sneak me through. Then today purple and yellow. I have been waiting all week things are on schedule. I bought this suit weeks ago to match a landscape, I’m not allowed to go. The bunnies will be playing ball, I will creep softly among them all. They will not see me. ‘Shh’, is what I think as one comes near. I hold my breath with hope and fear. It’s little nose sniffs the air. I feel so happy then I see… they are all staring at me. All at once they charge my way. I jump but …

Late Night Monster

This is an old piece I found hiding in a friends room, it was never finished. I thought about re-working the canvas but decided to digitally work it instead. This is my first attempt. I’m using Paper53 on the iPad with a digital stylus ‘Pencil’, all very strange and fun. #madewithpaper / fiftythree.com
