As you can tell from my worksheet the colors this week are two shades of purple and one shade of yellow. Once again I turned to nature for my inspiration.
A Bearded Iris - done in Prismacolor pencils. I think though that this is too squished, especially the top petals.
The next try came from a thoughtful gaze out the kitchen window earlier this week. I have been enjoying a little "staycation" and have marveled at how different this time at home has been compared to my time at home last summer pre- and post-surgery. I remember looking out the same window many times and I know that my thoughts were not as free and flowing as they are now. Back then there was too much "me" on my mind and though that's not a bad thing, especially if you are experiencing pain or discomfort, it is good to find time to reflect on other things. And also to appreciate them. How those cabbage moths just dance around all the plants, lightly setting down to grab a sip of nectar. Is it the color that attracts them? The fragrance? How much distance must they cover each day to sustain themselves? Funny where your mind wanders when you don't have to run out the door to get somewhere.
I forgot to include the link last week to the SOC challenge, so don't let me forget again - click here. Please do drop in and see the wonderful creations that have been posted for this challenge. And should you have a little "staycation" time, maybe you can check out the past posts too! You won't be sorry.
