Life Is Still Life

Life is still life. It’s still tough, complicated, and more than a little messy, with lessons to be learned, mistakes to be made, triumphs and disappointments to be had, and not every day is meant to be a party. ~ Alyson Noel ~

Due to the current Lockdown because of the COVID-19 Pandemic, I am into week eight of self-isolation with my husband and son, so having these images scanned is not a priority. It seems, however, that I am cannot take a decent photograph. The paper looks grey.

These are merely some drawing exercises. Sepia ink was used for the image above and with the two below, ink, oil pastels and watercolour were used. The last one was a quick first try-out on scrap paper, but in some ways I like it the best.

Why Do The Birds Go On Singing?

Why do the birds go on singing? Why do the stars glow above? Don’t they know it’s the end of the world? It ended when I lost your love ~ Sylvia Dee ~

Spring doesn’t know that our lives have been put on hold.

The blue skies, birds and flowers are giving me so much joy during this terrifying time with the Coronavirus epidemic running amock around our world. 

So as I have plenty of time on my hands at the moment, I’ll share some of the flowers that are popping up in my tiny garden.

Watercolour and ink were used to create this. I didn’t realise that the ink wasn’t waterproof so it made for some interesting marks.

Hope they will brighten up your day even just a little.
