The Year of the Fairy Tale – 3 Frogs, flying in the face of reason

And lo! From up in the sky
a flying frog, No LIE!
Breaking the mold
with wings of gold

Froggie swoops down
sporting a crown
A crown of red
Perched on her head

Here’s my first attempts at Flying Froggie in color.  Try-outs are still open.  Can’t decide which one should be cast as the heroine.  Do you have a favorite?

And lo! From up in the sky

The Year of the Fairy Tale, Moo Cows

An example of how circuitously my mind works. Year of the Fairy Tale’s first assignments focus on a well-known fairy tale – The Frog Princess.  

Reading that fairy tale inspired me to write a Fairy-Poem which inspired me to draw cows  (My Fairy-Poem  has a cow) which inspired me to write a “pome”.

Here’ my non-dominant hand moo-cow drawings which were inspired by my fairy-poem which was inspired by The Frog Princess which was inspired by The Year of the Fairy Tale which inspired the new “pome”. (as you can see – not only is my thinking circuitous it’s also redundant)

Moo Cow Pome

Hey diddle diddle
the cow in the middle
is strange as she can be
She has no udder
tho she’s a mudder
and as oblivious as can be

Year of the Fairy Tale & 3 Completely USELESS Haiku

Killing two creative outbursts with one post.  

 My froggie-character-study-in-progress (She’s going to be the heroine of my Fairy-Poem) AND  3 USELESS haiku:

Creativity
can’t use it for anything
except nourishment

Dominant Hand Drawing

It’s useless to think

talent and “art” are the same

just proceed on faith

Silly Me and The Year of the Fairy Tale

fttreated3princessI’m well known for starting lots of projects and not finishing lots of projects.   What I  love is the conception, the preparation and a smattering of execution – the process not the product is my hook.

So! with excitement and . . .  trepidation I’m participating in   Carla Sonheim’s Year of the Fairy Tale online class.  Yup. ONE year,   O – N – E year , 1 y – e- a – r.  Gulp.

There will be monthly assignments.  I’m going to pretend each is a different class, a SHORT class. one at a time.

All of Carla’s online classes I’ve taken were innovative, creative and lots of fun.   The classes were short.

My first class was “The Art of Silliness”. Here’s some of Carla’s “Silly” assignments and a sample of my silly pictures.

P1040687 P1040688 P1040695 P1040704 P1040788_2I’ll post my “creations”.  We’ll see if it was silly of me to commit to an entire year.
