Since I've gotten several requests from people to see the things I've been sketching as I travel (especially from my Dad, another artist who has offered me invaluable input and advice over the years), I'm deciding to post a few of my favorites. These are all from before hiking the Pacific Crest Trail, when I was living with the moneyless tribe in Utah and Colorado.
|My first morning in Moab, at a camp near town known as "White Trash Camp." 5/5/2014.|
|Another piece drawn at the same camp. 5/13/2014.|
|Fruita, CO. 5/21-22/2014.|
The quote that accompanies this one:
"Soul bird rise, lift your eyes, spread your wings, prepare to fly.
This is the moment of your life.
Go ahead and fly."
|Fruita, CO. 5/23-24/2014.|
|Drawn in Moab in all 3 caves in which our community lived. 5/28-30/2014.|
|Guest Cave. 6/2/2014.|
|Drawn at Raven's Roost mainly. Finished at KZMU while awaiting Daniel's radio show. 6/5-7/2014.|
This is a piece I did just before leaving for the Rainbow Gathering. I had a note that I would leave in my cave to let the others know I went to town, and one day I decided to decorate it a bit. Here's the result! 6/27/2014. Drawn under a mulberry tree in the canyon while reading the Dhammapada, then finished in the Guest Cave due to rainfall.
|Raven's Roost. Inspired by a pendant that Freebird found in the sand, which became a part of my necklace. 6/15-18/2014.|
Drawn 7/8/2014 in my tent at the Rainbow Gathering outside Heber City, Utah.
Last time I was in Fruita, Daniel's father admired my drawings and told me that the only thing he could draw is flies. I told him I would literally draw some flies for him then! It took awhile for me to finally sit down and draw it, and the page smudged a bit, but here it is!
As the posts continue from the Pacific Crest Trail and onward, I'm now going to accompany them with drawings from those times. But until then, you can at least see these pieces! Enjoy! :)
