Camping and Crows

so, i've been away for a few days....camping by the seaside.....and holy crow!!! sooooo many crows where we were, it becomes easy to see their routines and habits....not a robin in site.....and as you know, i LOVE crows.....and even though they are not a large part of my current body of work, when i see them i wanna play with the image.....these are quickie playtime shots from my visual journal.....so, not too much thought put in...just playing with colour and shape.....
sketchbook crows

 this second image is quick drawings with a sharpie felt pen, and then filled in with all colours that pleased me in the moment.....plus, polka dots!!!! this is different shots of the same curious crow as the keyboard played on the beach...checkin' it out....

more observations

 and then.... dogs are actually part of my current glass work....i am having a solo show on aug.4th, on gabriola, and will be showcasing "jolene" my life size dog sculpture.....she is sassy and cute, and i am lovin' her alot.....anyway, on this next page are some quick drawings, again with a sharpie....the type of dog kinda looks like my old dog, sarah, who has been gone awhile now.....she taught me alot....i think dogs really are quite buddha nature....they definitely live for the moment....the same path is filled with new delights on a daily basis....i attempt to capture that feeling now and then when i am walking....before bizzzzzy brain starts up again....it's a process.....ahhhhh......
