What does your pen do?

When left with an empty page, my pen does one of two things:

1: Zen doodle, paisley floral mix.  

2: Faces a la Picaso esque 

Twirls

Twirls

I use black ink.  I start with a simple line and build and build.  It is the pure definition of doodleling  

The face appears

This is when the pen takes over.  Time and time again a face will form.  

Even a creature  I do use color in my art.  My go to supply is a box of crayons mixed with colored pencil  I love to take old books, destin for the landfill and give them new life.

Any way it is put, my pen does what it wants.   What does your pen do?

Stay outside the LINES

Simple supplies are the easiest to use when staring a project.

As a child colouring and drawing went hand in hand. Hours of sketching and doodling turned into a lifetime skill for coping with stress.

Art saved my life

Layers of paint covered with pen, crayons and pencils keep time slipping by calmly.

There is no end.  There is no goal other than putting color and lines together

New sketchbook love

New sketchbooks make me nervous.  Beautiful blank pages.  Pristine crisp cover.  When I start something new I try not to worry about the outcome. A new sketchbook brings hopes of magical creations as well as fears of tragic failure.

I jumped in! No plans.  No thought of the ending.  Lots of color and plenty of help from my son.  Sebastian inked the eyes and gave her a flourish

Zen Doodle

In school I covered my notes with doodles.  Something's never change

Very zen

Very zen

Many of the finished pieces get turned into the covers of journals or I make art print greeting cards.   

I carry a sketchbook everywhere as a way of distressing.  Waiting for a bus, sitting at the Dr office, etc..... Nothing fills time like doodling!
