Morning Glories

Sure of their own beauty
morning glories throw themselves out
looking for anything to embrace.

Finding nothing, they will embrace
themselves. Over and over and over.
Lifting their heavenly faces
exposing the white pearl
at the center of their swirling star.

Oh how they have transformed
my ordinary mailbox
into a thing of beauty.

I spent a lovely hour painting my summer garden this evening. Summer is heaven!

Dinner tonight

Well, enough of the self-portraits for a while! EDM challenge this week is to draw what you had for dinner along with the recipe! In case you can't read the recipe and want to make Weight Watcher Quesadillas -- Grate some zucchini and mix it with some fresh salsa and some black beans. Pile on top of a tortilla, top with grated cheese and another tortilla. Heat over medium heat for 2 - 3 minutes on each side! Enjoy!

Self-portrait #11

This time with soft pastels. A very forgiving medium! Lots of "redo"s on this one! Still not exactly right. But FUN!

Self-portrait #10

This one is in the style of Danny Gregory as seen on his post today. I did the drawing with my ink pen and then played with it in Photoshop! Then, I painted it with watercolor and then played with crayons! Now I want a Wacom tablet and all that other fancy stuff to do art on the computer!! It has been fun participating in the Self-Portrait Marathon. I think it lasts for 3 more days!
