deciphering doodles

Totally mindless doodles here…

If you believe the Diary:

Long Necks = I’m pretty conventional and moralistic…(some would agree)

Hard pressure applied with use of pen = indicates tension…(not too much of a stretch)

Bird (if you call that a bird) = “high flying” ideals, the wish to fly away, the ability to rise above earthly problems (he does kind of resemble an alien?)

Rabbits = represents speed and sexual immaturity?

Long Legs = say I’m self-reliant (I’ll take this one)

Large Eyes = I’m suspicious, hypersensitive, and occasionally hysterical.   hmmm….

I’ve concluded that all of this must be taken with a grain of salt, as the book provides no real definition for the common thread found here…antlers?

Still working on Vayda’s card for 08…I’ve become totally OCD about color comps…and just can’t seem to make up my mind.  I’ll probably paint enough to have Christmas cards for the next 10 years!

Oh Deer!

November 7, 2008

Corny title, I know…but I had the most splendid encounter yesterday!  I was driving up to my mural site, when I thought I saw a dog…or two or three…or how about SIX little deer!  I didn’t see any antlers, and they looked rather young, but they stood there while I got out of my car, opened the trunk, fished out my camera, and snapped pics until my camera died!  Not the best shots, I only had about 3 minutes to click away, but none-the-less a nice way to start the day. I’ll be sure to post the rest of the photos to my flikr as soon as I get the time…
