Flights of Unconsciousness

I remember my dreams most nights. When I wake I will let my mind grasp them momentarily and then I let them slip away. I used to dream I could fly. Not high like superman but high enough. High enough to feel the air play around me, joy and wonder fill me.

Its been years since I’ve flown.

Sometimes I feel like a bird who has clipped her own wings.

My drawing for Drawing Day 2010

There are as many beautiful flowers as there are beautiful women who love them.

A handful of types of flowers and their meaning:

  • Amaryllis: Splendid beauty
  • Aster: Patience
  • Delphinium: Heavenly
  • Asiatic Lily: Majesty
  • Oncidium Orchid: A belle
  • Roses: Love
  • Snapdragon: Desire

Drawing Day 2010 was June 5, 2010. This time I’m only 2 days late. This is my drawing for drawing day; in pencil and took about 10 minutes. My drawing from last year: Raven.

So what is your favorite flower(s)? Mine… orchids and lilies.

A random tree outside of a random window

Like the title says, it is a random tree outside of a random window, drawn years ago when I actually carried my drawing pad around with me. The two things I seem to enjoy drawing the most are trees and hands.


Words spill from my eyes


words spill from my eyes
they pile upon each other
in an orgy without satisfaction

(do I close my eyes then
stop the ceaseless flow
or welcome the ramifications?)


Charcoal Face

I did this portrait a few months back. I used charcoal and an eraser and it took me about 10 minutes. I could have made some changes to improve it, but I left it alone after my initial completion.


Raven

And the raven, never flitting, still is sitting, still is sitting
On the pallid bust of Pallas just above my chamber door;
And his eyes have all the seeming of a demon’s that is dreaming,
And the lamp-light o’er him streaming throws his shadow on the floor;
And my soul from out that shadow that lies floating on the floor
Shall be lifted – nevermore!

– Edgar Allan Poe: The Raven (excerpt)

Raven Pencil Drawing:

So I didn’t draw anything on “drawing day,” but its still a drawing. I spent about an hour on this and I could do a lot more to it, but I wanted to leave it incomplete.

Things about Ravens:

  • Ravens are among the smartest of all birds
  • Ravens are the largest species of songbird
  • Ravens are the largest all-black bird in the world
  • Over the centuries, it has been the subject of mythology, folklore, art and literature
  • In many indigenous cultures the Raven has been revered as a spiritual figure or god
  • According to legend, if the ravens leave the Tower of London, the fortress and the British kingdom will fall.
