Notes and a Doodle

Significant

Here are a few notes I took while listening to Dennis Prager’s Happy Hour this weekend. My DH turned me on to him about 6 yrs ago, and I’ve been hooked ever since. You can find him Here and Here. Dennis talks about real life issues and he comes from a good moral perspective. See for yourself sometime.

Since I’m in between birdie drawings, and just needed to play with color……Out came the markers and the rulers and the stencils! This probably took me about 3 days to finish. I like that I can work on it, put it away and come back to it right where I left off. As you can see, still in my comfort zone of the more bolder and primary side of the color spectrum.

In my last post, I talked about Right vs. Left Brain thinking. I think I’m still very Left brained. As I was doing this part of the page, I was dissatisfied that I didn’t do these little rainbows in a more “unified” way….Such as, green series next to blue series, then red……you get the picture. But winging it is what I intended to do and since I haven’t found a good marker eraser yet (LOL), this is the result.

I find that rulers, parallel lines, circles tend to fill my doodle pages. I’m not one for shading and highlighting…...yet……this may change!

The famous are rarely significant and the significant are rarely famous.
This is so true.

I love this colourful piece...kinda like a roadmap of wisdom. I think the way you did the rainbows is just perfect!

lori vliegen said...

what a great way to illustrate a quote (and speaking of which, i love this quote about the "significant".....SO true!)......you've added all of your sweet eden touches.....it's perfectly colorful, just like you!! and thanks for your left vs. right brain post.....i'm so left brained that i even love the grid that you put all of the comparison characteristics!!!! xox, :))

Eileen Bergen said...

Love the bold colors!

Do you think adding words to a doodle tends to keep you in your left brain? In other words, does it inhibit the spontaneity of the doodling?

Eileen, that's a good question, I'm not sure....will have to do an experiment. Usually I doodle first then add the journaling, now I'll try journaling first then doodling. Who knows???? I do think I have to encourage (draw out) my right brain though. :D :D

Dawn said...

WHATEVER! Its BEAUTIFUL! I like the bright/bold/primary color style :) Probably because I am the same way--hahaha.

Dawn said...

@ Lori...Yeah I am so left-brained that I loved the gridded composition too. hehe.

ScrapGirls Ro said...

I think you need to keep on with this look. I love it! I look forward to seeing new ones!

Susan HP said...

Thanks so much for visiting my little blog. :)
I love your doodles - what a piece of art! So colorful! I think it's interesting that you think you're left brained because you want to make sense of your art, when mine is totally helter skelter.
I'll be back! :)

Shannon said...

Terri Kahrs said...

I just found you through Daisy Yellow, and am swooning in delight! Love, Love your "colors"! Hugs, Terri

Monica said...

gorgeous blog you have here. i recently entered the world of doodling and just love it.

love this piece.

art is both left and right. something like zendoodling or jackson pollock style is more intuitive, but we use the other side for composition and form, knowing which colours won't or will work.

Wow - my eyes are so drawn to your doodles. I love taking notes and placing them through my doodles too. Thanks for sharing this as it put a smile on my face.

About Me

My Photo
By day...I work in the Healthcare field, where every .. i.. has to be dotted and every ..t.. has to be crossed. This blog is the place where I can let myself go and have some fun. I am on a journey. A journey I started a long time ago, but it has been a bit sidetracked with Navy Wife relocations and raising kids. I finally see the light at the end of the tunnel and I have got some time for me. No, I will not be one of those moms walking around the house with Empty Nest Syndrome, I have got way too much to do, to learn, to create. Sure, once the kids are gone I will miss them....but hey, there is always the phone, the email, the texting and the Plane tickets! I love my life and my family and It is fun moving into this new stage. I am into Digital Scrapbooking, photography, journaling, Art Journaling and Drawing. I am a do-it-yourselfer and I am trying to teach myself to draw. I am finding that it takes a lot of patience, lots of practice and a good eraser! And if you're really curious there's a 3 part Interview by Eileen: HERE All the best, Eden
