Endless Rivers

of Hope

Clouds on clouds, in volumes driven,

Curtain round the vault of heaven.

—Thomas Love Peacock—

I stayed up late to work on this “Birds in violet sky.” Or maybe I should call it “What the Birds Saw.” 🙂

Creating it in Illustrator was an accident. I opened up the wrong program and then decided I’d just go for it (see what happens when I stay up too late!). I may do another version in Photoshop, who knows?

The birds were from the beach last week. I used image trace to give the photograph a silhouette appearance and then began to color the the sky. If my eyes aren’t deceiving me, I think they’re pelicans.

Speaking of Illustrator… some changes were made in my upcoming schedule and I’m taking a beginning drawing class. I guess it’s time to address this fear I have; of pens and pencils. Ha! Gotta love the digital age. Anyway, the countdown is finally on. Two more weeks and it’s back to school!

Time to call it a night. Peace & love everyone…

    I addressed my fear of drawing, and became more terrified
    but, we did come to some resolution….

      Haha! I get it. I just hate the fact that I say I can’t draw without ever giving it any real effort. I have to at least try. But yes my heart flutters when I think about taking this class lol
