finally got back to this doodle i started after a midnight doodling blunder a few weeks ago. i'm a night owl. some of my favorite ideas surface then, and i'm rarely ambivalent about what i create after dark. either i really like it or i really don't. in this case i really didn't, and now it is in the trash can, but i had fun thinking about how differently i think and do during those hours. then i read this wonderful post by judy wise about creativity after dark, in which she describes how things go bump in the night, especially during winter when the days are short and the nights are long. how i'd love to have a little protective angel floating above my head like her beautiful night muse in that second photo. when i look at her work, i can't imagine judy ever having problems with midnight art goggles.
thanks to all for the birthday wishes. it was a wonderful day and now i'm coping with the annual december 15 deflation, as everything that goes up must come down. the weather did too, in dramatic fashion. yesterday morning it was 59 degrees. this morning it was 3 with a wind chill of 15 below. if that isn't a letdown, i don't know what is!
