"Keep on swimming, swimming, swimming." as Dora would sing in "Finding Nemo".  This illustration has some inspiration from that movie, mostly the friendships and the lyrical ways water moves us around.

     My entry to this weeks IF Word of the Week!.  Been busy and absent, however, today I am back!

Feeling Good Movies and drawing...

Been working hard to keep good attitude and so I have been going through the tissue boxes with my movie choices, all of them great movies, all of them deep in spiritual character.  The last one I just wrote is called, "Listen To Your Heart" -a really feel good movie, so bring tissues.

As such I have been also thinking of doing a risk, by putting it out there, I am going to listen to my heart; I am announcing the creation of a drawing class to be held in Ventura, on Main Street in California.  I will provide a one hour class to anyone, all ages may attend, to teach you how to Draw.  You walk away with a drawing, which YOU DREW. No materials needed, except you and your good attitude.  $5.00 at the door, no reasonable donation refused, no one will be turned away.  I am following my heart, and that is to draw, so let me show you how easy it is, in just one hour.

Comment here, back to me, to be included, as I will be private messaging true wanna-be artists. To be included to where and when, make some noise at me.  I am counting on you and your desire to learn how to draw, so don't be shy, even if you just like this comment, you're in. There's more to come.

Check out what I have drawn in under an hour here.  Now I cannot promise you that you will achieve the same results, but maybe you will, you will have to show up to draw at my class first for this to happen.

IF Word of the week: WINGS

What an appropriate word for the first month of the year.  It carries so many meanings, mostly the feeling of freedom, release and happiness.  To soar and glide through the air is such a feeling of release.  And then there are the wings of an angel, and this month has seen too many of these with all of the shootings on schools specifically as this takes the lives of innocents and lives that have yet to begin their journey's of wonder.

I respectfully submit to Illustration Friday, my drawing of wings titled "Deco Wings' as I vaguely remember drawing it back in Junior college and discovering the fun of the Art Deco period, a world transformed following visits to Egypt by explorers  (the 1920's), seeing the art from a place where Gods walked the Earth and then these modern visitors brought back this culture and called it Art Deco.

May all of our dreams be carried on the backs of wings, so they can soar and travel to places we only hope to see knowing one day we will get there.
