At The Gate

Day 2: NaPoWriMo  2020

At The Gate

So here I am
at the gate
to my own

At least, it’s not
or locked tight
against further passage.

Funny, how
I thought
it could
or would be.

Need to remember,
each day,
to trust the process
that is me.

Notes: Am simply taking my prompts from my media file, things I’ve drawn, sketched, colored, etc. The image here is a drawing using one color. When I was doing them, I simply called them fantasies.

    So glad you’ve found your voice. Doesn’t sound rusty at all. Those wonderful are still coming straight from your heart. Please tell me about the image you included. Is it a block print?

    No, Marrianne. When I started coloring Mandallas, I purchased a lot of Fine Art pens using India Ink. That day, instead of coloring, I picked up my sketchbook, and just started drawing, beginning with the gate. Didn’t stop til the page was filled. After that, I did them on occasion and enjoyed what was happening. So, I guess you’d have to say it was sort of an accident? Please understand, most of my Art work is simply me playing. Although I took Art for three years in High School, I did end up being the Art Teacher’s Assistant as a senior, but my older sister was the designated Artist in the family. I was always the ‘rebel’. Which led me to be the leader of a group of other girls who sort of forced a curriculum change, at a time when there were still “Boys only” classes.

    I see I forgot to add a word above! Comment should read, “Those wonderful words are still coming straight from your heart.” xox

    Your words carry wisdom in simplicity. I love that. And the green gate. It’s beautiful, Elizabeth.
