Creative Process

Here’s the creative process for the whooping crane. Was going back and forth between two different sky views and decided on the second one because the pretense is calm. This first one seemed somewhat intense. Maybe a sky view for a future character. Thank you for your support and interest. Grateful to learn your opinion as one of these will be an illustration inside a book soon.

“I don’t want to be at the mercy of my emotions. I want to use them, to enjoy them, and to dominate them.”

-Oscar Wilde-

Today we learned about different animal species, identifying emotions, and interpreting contexts.

Emotional Intelligence is about more than celebrating the good feeling emotions. It’s about learning how to name and interpret all emotions to better understand ourselves and the world around us. Emotions are complex. Some emotions are byproducts of processing other emotions.

Today’s demonstrated themes were Insouciant and Aloof! We discussed the power of choice, the depths of emotions, and the concept of empathy.

Comfort

. . .There is a comfort in reading a book with the moon shining through your bedroom window. As the sun reflects off of the moon while your mind reflects the words and concepts on the page. Summer is a good time to observe and think. Just captured this shot of tonight’s sky. Thank you for letting me share it with you. . .
