free floating free fall

I wanted to be able to draw easily today; to curl up in my favorite chair, try to find a comfortable position and draw.  So I didn't work in my journal but a small hand bound book I made a while back, which opens flat and fits easily in my lap.  Paper and pencil and a rainy day...

  1. She is sad, but so beautiful. I really loved this image when it popped up in my RSS reader.

    And I get the feel of your rainy day in this piece, too. :)

  2. Floating through the gyre...

    I love the light you achieved with just pencil ! You are amazing, beautiful Karin.

    May you find more cozy moments today.
    Love Kim

  3. i love this sketch... interesting

  4. Still very beautiful Karin. I notice she is holding on to her wrist. I do that when my hand is in pain. Is she doing that for the same reason.

    I love the spot or flecks on the picture. I saw a little writing, is that the date.

    Love Renee xoxoxo

  6. hi! Jackie (from Illustrating Stories) gave me the link to your blog, and I'm so glad she did, because your journal pages are wonderful! I've been feeling a bit uninspired and haven't worked too much in my journal lately, but I'm feeling that urge to open it up and play in it now-thank you!!
    have a great day and I look forward to visiting often

  7. Beautiful drawing, Karin. I've been stuying it for several minutes and recognize that feeling of floating into the vortex as I'm going off to sleep.


Thanks for visiting and leaving your thoughts!
