A Walk in the Desert
As you pray, move your feet.
“Gratitude is the fairest blossom which springs from the soul.” – Henry Ward Beecher.
“What comes out of an orange when you squeeze it? Orange juice. Why? Because that is what is inside. When you get squeezed – that is, when someone applies pressure on you – what comes out? Stress? Anger? Hatred? Fear? Frustration? Is it because of your boss? Never. Is it because of your mother? Your children? What comes out of you is always what is inside. It has nothing to do with the rest of the world. How does it get there? Only as you think.”
We stopped at a Starbucks in Memphis as we made our way home to Arizona. They had cut up cards into guitar picks. I was inspired to make a multimedia page in my journal.
I’m playing around with new techniques and styles. I really like this artist, Olivier Tallec. I
emulated copied his illustration to see how he managed the shadow on the wolf’s face. I like his color choice and the graphite pencils he used. I don’t have any…I tried pencil and chalk and didn’t like either. Just placed an order for graphite pencils and I’m excited to use them!
