Weary Hop


Arrrrgh!  I clicked “save draft” and geez… burp and blown away… no art, every rambling word gone.   Well, maybe I wasn’t supposed to write about those protestors in downtown Yo’stown with the “honk if you are in debt” and “stop sheriff sales” signs, how I sat on a bench talking to a young man in mild amusement while waiting to hear even just one motorist toot their horn.  Nope.  Either folks around here are debt-free or they simply ignore goofy people hanging out downtown holding signs.

Today’s art was drawn with Faber Castell Polychromos on my favorite hot pressed cotton, then kissed with a thin line Sharpie marker, after a weary day of hopping five buses just to go to a bank downtown then up to the north side to hit one store and home again.

Thank you for viewing my art!

PS:  it is now past midnight here in Ohio, but since it is still “today” on the west coast, I’m cheating a bit and back dating this post to yesterday as I refuse to give myself a day off right now.  Okay, with any luck… clicking save won’t blow it away.

  1. You’re right. I’m on the west coast and it is still May 22, with 90 minutes to go, give or take. Nice!

    • Thanks Monica! Days in Ohio just end too quick. 🙂

  2. Cool! It looks a bit like the art of Georgia O’Keefe!?

    • Thanks! Perhaps it is the play with shapes, the soft feminine curves often found in nature? I don’t intentionally try to mimic anyone else’s style, so it kind of blows my mind that you are the second person this week to mention a simularity. I always admired her work so perhaps she has been an influence on a subconscious artistic level.
