Who Says?

I got the inspired to draw a peacock from this post.

Then I thought it would be cool to write in the different feathers.

They say it takes intelligence to hold two opposing views in your head at the same time…well, I don’t know if that’s true but it is something I do a lot.

After I drew this little guy, I thought he resembled the little gecko from those geiko commercials.

I thought this view was pretty cool.

I think I like the way these art journal pages look with the watercolor as the base.

who says doc 001 copy

And this is what all that ramblin’ reading says.  A fun collection of little quips people say.

Your peacock is fantastic! And his face does remind me of the gecko from Geico! I like what you wrote, too. I always wonder who "they" are,the ones everyone refers to as in "they said"....

Now that is one cool peacock Eden and I love all the words you have in there. What a fun piece of art. I agree with Janet too, who are "they" anyway... I love the questions you are asking

Love the Rainbow Peacock and especially LOVE the text - it really grabs the Calligapher in me!

Loved your last post about the art supplies as well. If you like Dr Martin's Bombay Ink, you'll love the Dr Martin's Pen White - the ultimate in White ink - writes on anything and covers anything, all in a smooth matte finish.

Eden, I love this, the combination of a peacock and slow, wavy journaling... and totally agree with your thoughts on this. Who is "everyone" anyhow? I agree about the Bombay white ink - I use it in my rapidograph but should try it with a calligraphy pen...

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!
