Draw What’s Around You …

what surrounds you … whatchu see … whatchu want to see

Draw what you sae surrounding you - draw your wagons into a circle

Draw what you sae surrounding you – draw your wagons into a circle

Draw whatchu think you see … as nearly as you can … even if you can’t.

Draw what you want to draw ... it's your vision, afterall ...

Draw what you want to draw … it’s your vision, afterall …

What you see is what you get –

more or less … more often less than more … .  If you don’t like it … close your eyes and draw … what you just drew  . …  Do you like it any better?

Do you like it any less?

Do you like the pictures you drew before any better?

No matter.  Someone else just passed by.  And their very step is saying DRAW ME NEXT –

DRAW AN APPLE

from memory –  take a bite out of it

make it a green apple –

and take a bite out of it … nibble at it around the edges –

give it arms and legs if you like … or just ignore it

IGNORING IT IGNORING IT IGNORING IT IGNORING IT

After you have ignored it long enough … draw an apple head …  to no particular purpose save to say “I drew an Apple Head today.  It’s not everyone can say that on a given day – image-373Prop the Apple Head on a febce post –

I started a story for Sarah, for her birthday …

image-336but git sidetracked for no particular reason … it was the lighthouse that triggered the side bar

It called to me … demanding my attention.  It staged a sitdown strike in my living room.  It refused to budge … did not allow stories to continue by.  “YOU SHALL NOT PASS”

I hsf no choice

it was dance or be eaten. 

Sarah;s story was stopped up … and I was forced to write Pirate Santa just to get it out of the way.  Them there was a lighthouse keeper.  The last lighthouse keeper … and he was waiting for the end of the world’
