In Today's Sketchbook.....


I tell my husband that, in allowing people into my sketchbook, I think I am revealing a bit too much of my bizarre mind.  Today's sketch is one of those times.  When I was meditating for a few minutes this morning, trying to empty my overactive brain, suddenly this image was there. I don't know where it came from. Oh, I guess I have some inklings, some suspicion of where it originated: I have an educational background in behavioral psychology, so I can't help but analyze these things.

We do have a number of huge raven pairs living in our neighborhood, and I do have a memory of seeing one of them, at this time of year with a large round red thing in it's beak (probably an apple.) So that may explain the bird with the ornament. And the rest of it? Best not even go there, in all likelihood!

But I will say that the image was so clear and simple, it almost painted itself in a matter of a few minutes. And it was fun. That's all that counts this morning; a few minutes of 'lite-brain' (or maybe 'empty brain') enjoyment before the day's rush begins.

I think this sketch is great, would make an interesting and different chritmas card.

Thanks, Debbie. It would be different, for sure!
