Mama & baby bear henna design

The first pregnancy henna of 2018! Mama-to-be requested bears and mountains... not really any large trees but flowers instead - especially succulents. Ideas were explored about the shape, position and filling of the bears. I gazed at succulents on my phone (a new request). When she said mountains, I ran upstairs to my desk, and sitting in the spotlight was a lovely little blue research drawing I'd done over Winter Holiday.

At the time, I was deep in the realm of self education, where I was drawing a whole series of landscapes as a form of spontaneous obsessive creative expression. I decided to take a break from "work", and not really turn on my computer much, not do any work for clients for the whole holiday. In the space and time that was left behind, I found myself relaxing by listening to podcasts (Design Matters by Debbie Millman is my currently favorite) and doodling. Then doodling progressed to an art idea that I've been wanting to work on, the progression from tiny flower to mountain top. I broke out lots of inspiration and began to bring it all together, trying out one new idea after another. There are so many ways to fill space. Dot after dot after dot, filling space, making stars or sand... leaf after leaf drawn, feeling the closeness of the trees, then the forest. What does it look like, when the trees get smaller? These are art problems I sat an solved with my blue sharpie with great satisfaction. I also played with layers of dirt and the mushrooms that grow under bushes. The piles of rock, the sediment ... I tried two big leaf shapes but they ended up looking like gravestones. Not so good. But perhaps as reminder of our ancestors. I am happy with the work I do, I love to be an artist. I love to make art so much that it's what I do when I'm on break, during the holidays...
