Thank God it’s Monday.  I know that may not be popular among people who work Monday through Friday, but I have worked all weekend.  I’m off tomorrow and Wednesday.  So, I’m being contrary and what else is new?

I didn’t get much time to do artwork….but I am working on Making Peace with January.  It features a seagull against a cloudy sky.  My mother, who was always tuned into nature said seagulls only come inland when there’s going to be a storm.  Her wisdom seems to be true.  Again, though, seagulls are one of the few birds that are around here in the winter.

The idea was to have a white outline of a seagull against a cloudy sky.  Well, in the sketch I did that….and it turned out horribly depressing looking.  My intention is to spread good vibes, so a totally depressing sketch is totally….wrong.  So, I quickly did some edges of light coming around the clouds.  It’s smudged, it’s dirty, it’s done dirt cheap….but at least it will give you an idea.

I also made the seagull too large….looks like an albatross.  More seagull like proportions to come.
