going nowhere
blue pencil
sketchbook stuff

the camera doesnt pick up the light light hatch marks
only the road and sky are white
all comments always welcomed

The underground world of dena. (How appropriate for the basement. :D) I love all the little detail (that I can see on my monitor.), and the warped surrealistic sense of it.

The Moon inside the Sun.:angel:

You, my dear friend, are an inspiration. Baby doll heads and lolipop lands. Fish bones and ribbons. Lovin it. Do you have plans for this one? Paint? Other groovy things?

nowhere is so far away :P
beautiful little drawing thing

We're off to see the wizard but he ran off with Alice.

hereís a better photo
closer to the true color
which is something in between these two photos
i darkened up the light light bits
and added some subtle yellow
its done now

no painting for this one
i think i am not so good a painter
so i donít like painting sketchbook things
too much disappointment
and they already are what they are
i would like to be an apprentice to someone for a small while
or an apprentice to a few
sit near them for a month to see how they paint
watch and learn watch and learn
i got to watch and paint with michael
and that was a beautiful humbling thing
to see our similarities of process
to see how he makes his magic
now my eyes want more
and with more people
so that when i am brave enough to paint
it will be something quite grand

thanks for the eyes and words all

it's gorgeous

Subtle yellow makes any path, even none at all, brighter & warmer.

This is a much more lovely & tender heart course than defiance & dead babies.

and to be consciousness of beauty and of ugliness at the same time is art

Dena your pieces are ultra compelling. I feel color would take away from, thx for sharing.

... my paintings never come out like the sketches they started as, sometimes that's a good thing... other times, not.

a treasure box
ant farm of your head
i'm waiting for the people
to come out of the houses
