Deep Thoughts In Graphite

2017-05-08T11:51:46-04:00Categories: Angie's Blog|Tags: , , , , |

Coloring with graphite pencil has me appreciating the simplicity, and that in turn opens awareness to the tiniest little things. A momentary realization that it's probably going to be impossible to color this current set of shapes with a truly even coloring hand. Four small peapod interior type thingies colored so far, 12 more to [...]

Whoops! Here's the last half of the photos I shot for this page. Today was one of those "accidently delete a bunch of your photos" days - which is sure better than having an "accidently delete book drawings" day. :) Today's coloring progress slideshow: Today's book: Nifty (A Coloring Journal) Colored with: Faber [...]

More Flowers (Wide Tipped) – Finishing Up and Ramblie Thoughts

2017-05-08T11:51:51-04:00Categories: Angie's Blog|Tags: , , |

Whoopsie! Guess who accidently deleted all of my latest in progress photos? I guess we just have one photo today as I pick up with more of my rambling thoughts from yesterday. Now on to the rest of the ramblies: ---- The difference in feeling between "have to do" stuff and "just being" activities can [...]

More Flowers (Wide Tipped) – Day 2 Ramblie Thoughts

2017-05-08T11:51:51-04:00Categories: Angie's Blog|Tags: , , , |

Yesterday I was talking a bit about the difference in feeling between "have to do" and "just being" activities. I don't know if other people feel the same way or make those same distinctions, but wow - I've been doing this since I was a kid. Cleaning my desk was a "have to do" and [...]

Transcend – Finishing Up And Clock Shift

2017-05-08T11:51:52-04:00Categories: Angie's Blog|Tags: , , , , , , |

Wow, the clock change (end of Daylight Savings Time) has really thrown me for a bit of a loop. I tend to write my blog posts in the afternoon or evening, and my morning ritual is sipping tea, writing a short note to my Facebook group and then posting the blog post I prepared the [...]

Transcend – Slow Coloring Day 5

2017-05-08T11:51:52-04:00Categories: Angie's Blog|Tags: , , , , , |

One of the things that's going on in the background while I color this piece is that every time I finish coloring a set of shapes, I keep thinking that I'm going to do those little polka dots next. And then I try to pick a shade for them and start thinking that maybe I'll [...]

Transcend – Slow Coloring Day 4 (Rambling Chit Chat)

2017-05-08T11:51:52-04:00Categories: Angie's Blog|Tags: , , , , , , , , |

As I get older I get ever more comfortable with short pencils. My current sketchbook graphite drawing pencil is somewhere between stub size and ridiculous stub size right now. It gives my rough drawings on my sketch pad extra unplanned touches as lines bend every which way. Short pencils don't have the same elegant balance [...]

Transcend – Day 3 (More Thoughts On Fear And Tension)

2017-05-08T11:51:52-04:00Categories: Angie's Blog|Tags: , , , , , , , |

I tend to be a calm and rational person. I feel deeply but forgive easily. And I'm pretty good at stepping back from external fuss and finding the place of inner peace and strength that is always with me - even if some days it's kind of a challenge to find it. Sometimes there are [...]

Transcend – Day 2 (Thoughts On Fear And Tension)

2017-05-08T11:51:52-04:00Categories: Angie's Blog|Tags: , , , , , , , , , |

Are you feeling a lot of fear and tension in the air too? It seems that most people I know are. It doesn't matter how much we may differ in opinions or beliefs, we are all quite united in our understanding of how it feels to be uncertain, apprehensive, fearful or overwhelmed. And if those [...]

Transcend – Slow Coloring Day 1

2017-05-08T11:51:53-04:00Categories: Angie's Blog|Tags: , , , , , |

After my recent wild coloring from Wow, it's fun to switch gears again and settle into slow coloring an Extreme Mood Mender. And if you look really closely, you might be able to spot my little coloring oops. Here's a slide show with my step by step slow coloring progress: Did you find [...]
