Head in the Clouds

This was inspired by that sentence, which is in the book The Goldfinch.  It’s funny what will offer a little inspiration now and again…walking aimlessly, savasana (corpse pose in yoga-aka lying on the floor half-asleep: a favorite of mine), and reading usually works for me.

This was created using pencil and my nifty, portable Cotman watercolor set.  I go back and forth about using inks…I’m a little too enamored with my pencil marks but like the permanence of ink.  (Also, I’m better with a pencil.)

If anyone is interested, this is available as a print.

I draw and paint and Photoshop. (Is that now a verb and a noun?) Also, I swim and walk dogs and do yoga. Posting will be Tuesdays and Thursdays. Thanks for looking!
