I sometimes find myself fearing the loss of creativity because of the focus it takes to work a full time job. I don't actually believe I could lose it because it's an integral part of me, but I am aware of the need to find inspiration in places other than nature. During the week, I am surrounded by people and man made objects.  Consequently, I started drawing people on the metro, especially those seated in front of me. Turns out the back of the head can be quite interesting, the ears in particular, which are very oddly shaped, especially when viewed from behind! One of the things I love about drawing is that it requires observing that which one normally does not see, which makes me feel connected to the whole of life. And isn't that what it's all about? The oneness of all...

 The other day I took some photos of the metro train as it passed.  I overlayed the photos with some washes of color I'd done earlier in the week.

Lastly, I couldn't resist designing another flower petal fashion.  This is the January page of the new 9 x 11 Corolla de la Moda Calendar.  Available on the Shop page.
