Having raven as my totem keeps me grounded,
yet it also gives me wings to fly.
This was a fun exercise today. I scanned and printed a random old photograph (copyright free image) and printed it in sepia on a paper bag. I could barely make out the image, but then I took out my colored pencils and began to make her come to life. I then (for the first time) used oil pastels for a creamier mix and highlights. It was fun to finally create something, anything again.
As this economy continues to crush me and Bri, I look around and still see abundance.
My art supplies, for one.
Friends, of course.
A roof (for now!)
And although my hours have been cut back, I still have a job.
Now if only Bri could find one.
I do believe these very wings will lift me out of this.
