dancers

I didn’t start with a particular dance in mind – it just seemed full of movement. Maybe there are tam-tams playing – that seems about right 🙂  a park, and tam-tams… summer’s end…

UPDATE: New summers-end poem from Tom – thanks!!

For we who dance at summer’s end
will sway to beats that pulse and bend
along the geodesic line
toward the equinocal time
where darkness balances the light:
this long day wanes, encroaching night
extends its fingers up the sky
but still we dance, though winter’s nigh!

stretching...

stretching… or pouncing?

It’s been too long! I’ve been working longer hours recently and haven’t wanted to look at a computer too much after work but here is a quick doodle. Hoping to get back into the zone!

Hoping a haiku will be in order… Tom??

UPDATE: Thanks Tom!

One more quick doodle that was done on the long weekend in May. I must start doing some new drawings soon… and I will have more time to do that not long from now. I’m looking forward to it!

UPDATE: New haiku from Tom! Thanks!!

small talk murders consciousness

Bay doodle

Bay doodle

reflected mountain
green dragon ripples over
cloud-flecked blue water

This doodle is not a portrait of the Bay… more just a feeling… an impression , one could say 🙂 I visited this beautiful place in Quebec last weekend with friends.

Today I am experimenting with blogging directly from my iPad mini… hence the short text.

UPDATE: Haiku from Tom. See above!

Just a random doodle today… trying a bit of contrast between soft and hard edges.

Have a great rest of the week!

UPDATE: New haiku from Tom!

empty open free
where are my car keys?

more flowers

more flowers

Here’s another doodle on the same theme as last time… flowers, soft blending and exploring the relationship of colours next to and overlapping each other. Still enjoying using Procreate. In fact I have done a few more doodles but haven’t posted them yet. I will try to post another this week.

Check out this photography blog with some lovely detail shots of flowers, architecture and more.

UPDATE: Original poem from Tom in the comments! Captures the image very well – thanks Tom!

Floral embers smoulder, bursting fire
beneath the gusting winds of warming Spring
raising up the Year King on his pyre
to burn within the sacred garden’s ring
where arms of leafy green are raised up high
to welcome back the Eastern-rising sun
rebirth is in the air across the shire;
Winter’s reign at last is finally done!
So brightly burn the floral fires today
that only for a moment will they last
yet toward the Summer they will light our way
melting Winter’s grip so cold and fast.
So the Year King burns, for he is slain,
Yet all that dies will one day live again.
