Blog Post of 10/22/17 – some ideas, weird cat picture, halloween art contest

Since it is about a week before Halloween, ravens & dark forests have been on my mind. I have been sketching out some ideas for work based on these subjects.

Ink sketches of what were supposed to be ravens, but they just ended up looking like generic birds haha.

 

I have an idea of using ink and watercolor to create a semi-abstract, dark, spooky forest.

The Raven’s Nest Photograph

This photograph was taken in July at Fred Howard Park. I enjoy visiting this park especially because there is such a wide variety of scenery in the small space it inhabits. There’s a beach if you want to swim in the Gulf of Mexico, various types of trees and plant life, and many interesting creatures running around, especially fox squirrels.

Hibiscus Flower

I took this photo after the hibiscus flower first bloomed in my front yard. Often referred to as the Hawaiian flower, this plant has many uses. It is edible, and can be drunk as a tea, made into a garnish, & cooked in soup. Some claim that it can calm an upset stomach. Although I must admit that I have never had the urge to eat a hibiscus flower. I am content to just admire it.

Mama Duck With Babies Photographs

There’s a gang of ducks that lives in my neighborhood. I’m not exactly sure how they first got here, but all I know is that they are aDuckable! (Yes, that is my attempt at a  pun.) Anyways, whenever they come waddling by my house, I try & take as many photos as possible. They are just too cute! Taken July 2016
