As usual, I start to notice things--for example, how horses' noses and seahorses' noses are similar and how they're different--how the patterns of scales and feathers are similar and different--and then that brings me back to patterns and randomness and serendipity in art (and life).
I still can't figure out why I can draw a seahorse but not a human hand--some things in life are apparently intended to remain a mystery for eternity...
So I'm looking at my patterned owls and wondering why I'm having so much trouble making a seahorse that has the patterns in it--maybe my seahorses are too soft-edged when done with pencil? But then they don't have the same gracefulness when they are done in pen. It's a quandary.
Linking up to Paint Part Friday--I'll post more pictures soon. I'm sending this from my phone, and it will only allow me to send one picture at a time!
