I'm kind of 'doodled out'. During all the busy-ness of the past couple of months, I didn't do much art except doodles, which are easy to do, relaxing and don't take a lot of planning. So here are my latest ones -- my lack of creativity showing up in the rather bland names.
I'm a little surprised at how much all the extra activity and decision making has actually affected how much I can concentrate on my art. It's not that I didn't have some time to do something, it's just that my brain was too preoccupied with other things. Physical activity results in the body feeling tired, but I didn't realize that over-working the brain also brings about mental fatigue -- something I don't think I've experienced before in quite the same way. Must be old age catching up with me!

Night Shadows -- Leaves on Glass
This last one is not actually a doodle. It depicts the shadows on the lower glass of our front living room window, which I often see at night when I can't sleep. I sit in my arm chair without any lights on, but the light from the lamp outside reflects the shadows of the leaves of a small bush outside the window. The orangey-green is the background light from the lamp on the glass. It's not such an outstanding rendition, but I like it because it is very familiar and peaceful.
ABC Wednesday is next on my blog. See you then.
