Rainy Day Blues

On a cold and rainy day I love snuggling up in a big cozy sweater with a cup of tea. Of course a thick soft blanket makes it even better.  You will normally find a sketchbook, book, or maybe some yarn tucked in there with me. It’s one of the ways I try to relax. What is your favorite ways to escape the rainy day blues? #Inktober #Inktober2019 #tasty #ink #drawing  #rainy #tea #woman #messybun

Embraced by a Ghost

I thought about this prompt “Ghost” a bit differently.  There are many instances in a day where something small reminds me of my friend Jaime or even my dad. I lost both of them to cancer. Sometimes it’s a pattern or a color or even at times just the rain. These thoughts though made me both happy and sad. Instead though I thought about something else completely, how easy it is to lose yourself whether it’s from being in so called love or in the midst of pursuing a goal. It can be so very hard to embrace your ghost and even more difficult to find yourself again. I’ve been  there and I hope to never travel that path again. Be true to yourself and love yourself it’s more important than you will ever know. #Inktober #Inktober2019 #ghost #memories #love #ink #drawing  #woman

Ocean Booty

She guards what’s rightfully hers with an unwavering eye. Never get between a woman and what she holds dear whether it be love, family, or a pirate’s booty. No matter the odds she will spite the odds. #Inktober #Inktober2019 #treasure #pirate #woman #ink #drawing #feather #buccaneer #shadow

Warrior Woman

Her expression says it all. It’s my favorite part of this ink sketch. I may revisit it later to add more detail especially on the hands. #Inktober #Inktober2019 #sling #Ink #InktoberDay19 #warriorwoman #focus

Barnyard Misfit and Gerald’s Mom

I imagine that Gerald’s mom worries a lot about her son. He stands out from a crowd and never seems to fit in. He’s quite the misfit compared to the other birds. Hopefully he finds his people soon.

Over the summer we visited Woolaroc. I haven’t been there since I was eleven or so. In one of the animal areas there was an ostrich. He was quite curious, but not exactly friendly though my niece definitely tried to get him to warm up. #Inktober2019 #Inktober #InktoberDay18 #misfit #ostrich #emu #Gerald #mom #ink #drawing

Wizened Age

Age equals more hair to shave. His hair, eyebrows,  and beard are more than overgrown. Although his appearance may be wizened with the years he’s accumulated his life begins anew with every new birth. For he is known throughout the eons as Father Time. #Inktober #Inktober2019 #overgrown #InktoberDay14 #fathertime #hair #beard

Smoking Ash

“Hmmm … I have a brilliant idea. Here hold this.” The smile and eyes remind me of my brother and his wild ideas. Then again I may have done some of my own antics. Luckily we missed out on the Victorian age and child labor. It makes me think of Mary Poppins … a nice story, though it tends to glamorize the idea of chimney sweeps. I imagine that soot and ash were caked on their bodies and clothes. Sadly built up in their lungs too. #Inktober #Inktober2019 #InktoberDay13 #ash #chimneysweep #boy #victorian #drawing
