Oh! You Pretty Things
Three weeks ago I wrote “I Do” – Art Relationships. The post was about committing to creative endeavours generally and to this drawing in particular. I admit that I began the drawing with no idea how I was going to pull it off – especially the dog. After all, one doesn’t know what will be encountered along the way when one starts out on a creative (or any) journey. All one can do is set off well prepared with an open heart and a prayer for safe passage.
Now, late in the month of March, the drawing is completed. It is a year and a month since my guardian angel put me in the right place at the right time to witness and capture this vision. In a sense then, there are two journeys – the trip to Japan followed by the journey with coloured pencils and paper.
I have a constant arsenal of songs and tunes in my head. Some of these are David Bowie songs. Imagine how much “Oh! You Pretty Things” has gone round and round in my headspace for the duration of this drawing…and even now as I write!
“Oh! You pretty things. Don’t you know you’re driving your mamas and papas insane.”
