storm


this doodle has been waiting inside me for a while and it just took the right word from cecilia to pull it out. i can't think of any major storms that have taken me in recent times, but i think this concept also explains some of those smaller storms that have taken me by surprise - like dumping coffee on a drawing just when i have it the way i want it. after i've recovered from the shock, then i look for ways to rescue it or start over. maybe it leads to a better drawing in the end, or a new one entirely.

other participants this week were: esti, fruenswerk, alexandra, tiny red, and lea. i'll be picking the next weekword so check back on monday if you want to play along with us :)

You are good with your drawn words Miss Aimee...Always
But not that good keeping coffee inside cup...But, yes sometimes we have to see things (bad things) through positive eyes...If we don´t wanna end in a storm, so I do hope something good came out of coffee, on your finished drawing in the end? hug

aimee said...

thanks, girls - l'atelier and shell, i'm glad you found this meaningful :)

fruenswerk, i am giggling... no, i'm not so good at keeping the coffee inside the cup - that's why i make LOTS of coffee... and i'm going to do it now...
