Maybe I should call this mellow yellow. Haha. Catching up. One more to do for today.

Color directly influences the soul.
Color is the keyboard, the eyes are the hammers,
the soul is the piano with many strings.
The artist is the hand that plays,
touching one key or another purposively,
to cause vibrations in the soul.
Wassily Kandinsky

Sun-bleached bones were most wonderful against the blue – that blue that will always be there as it is now
after all man’s destruction is finished.
Georgia O’Keeffe

Just a couple of quick sketches. Thank you, Christine! Your sketchbook saved the day. 🙂 This was NOT the bleed proof pen, but I was pleasantly surprised to find that out.

There is unspeakable beauty and potential
to be found in nature. It entices me and is
an invitation I just have to accept.
Jil Ashton-Leigh

Every leaf speaks bliss to me, fluttering from the autumn tree.
Emily Bronte

Eucalyptus on my mind.

Eucalyptus trees have a minty, pine scent with a touch of honey. There are more than 600 eucalyptus species throughout the world. These trees hold a strong place in my childhood memories.

Meeting my oldest and dearest friend. Rainy nights, and foggy mornings. The crunch of fallen bark. Sticky leaves in my hand. If you have ever breathed in their fragrant scent, you are sure to never forget it.
