(Above) There is so much on these two pages that I’ll post them separately below with their stories. The righthand page was especially meaningful, with the pink ballet dancers from my dream:
For Wordle: NINTH, I chose the ninth story from A Thousand and One Arabian Nights. In that story a porter follows the lady of the house through the marketplace and carries all the goods she purchased (which I drew, above). No shopping carts in those days, I guess.
I didn’t remember any dreams so I painted the beautiful Great Blue Heron I saw at Point Isabel today.
I was so happy with the first page and so unhappy with the second one. I spent a lot of time on the drawing of the complicated apple slices in the slicer and then totally messed up the painting. I tried to “fix” it but on Hobonichi Tomoe River paper you really have to get the painting in one shot. Fixing rarely works.
Above is the two-day, two-page spread; keep reading to see the individual pages with the stories below in this continuing journal series of the day’s Wordle and my wacky dreams.
Today I’m including a week of journal pages to (try to) catch up. You can click twice on any image for a larger version. My favorite funny dream stories are on the last page below.
Above, left: Wordle was MATEY. I drew an obituary photo for a Ms. Doris Matey and an “Ahoy Matey Dahlia.”
Dreams that day:
- A guy took my spot at a shared art studio
- Shopping for a water brush in an old car repair garage
- My sister and my niece looking like each other
Above, right: Wordle was ELUDE so I drew a kitty eluding capture.
Dream: two guys had a podcast about coyotes at their coyote ranch (and some other stuff I didn’t draw–zoom in on text in photo if you care).
Wordles and dreams for these two days sparked some fun drawing/painting. See below for closeups and details for each page.
Above is the 2-day spread and below are the individual pages with a bit of the stories.
Today I’m posting four days in two, two-page spreads (above and below). Plus I have a question for my readers at the end of the post.
Below are the individual pages and their stories.
