Sunday Sketches - Happy Anniversary

Happy Anniversary Sunday Sketches
Well, according to our wonderful hostess Sophia, over at The Blue Chair Diary, it has been one year since she began Sunday Sketches. A weekly art co-op dedicated to showcasing a sketch created during the week.
We post our sketch and visit our friends!
Sophia started with two participants and now has over 30 participants on any given Sunday!
YAY Sophia, congratulations!
I am so proud of YOU!
Every Sunday she is hostess to this creative blog event. Her dedication has brought all of us together every Sunday, for 52 weeks! It's good to see familiar faces, and new faces every really brightens my day!
 It's such a great forum, and filled with such artistic people and talent.
I so love my Sunday Sketch buddies!
So Sophia, this is for YOU!
Thank you!

Finished sketch of Sophia!
and her puppy!

My UNIQUELY styled Wallpapers. During some ten years, I have developed an extremely complex and unimitable technique that should carry some interest of anyone pursuing a serious artistic ambition and expertise. And it's quantity as well: by now close to 3 000 wallpapers, all created by me. Why not tune in on my rapidly growing art blog? Its Copyright Anyone, as it SHOULD be for this genre!

I run Deviant Art in parallell:

And I write poetry in several languages:


There's much in the world that you can't explain.
It's revealed for you to remember
by the whispering voice of a distant train
or a midnight rain in november.

Horizon within! You can always find
the keys to Enigma. Let's mention
one basic Truth: of spirited Mind
Is Nature naught but extension.

Internal expanses! In dreams, ridden
by fear and longing you roam
that deep Southeast in your soul hidden
...on your random journey back home.

Single Swingle


Casualidad sopla la sangre
de alguno señor desconocido
durante los pocos restantes
momentos del resplandor de faroles

que se vislumbran tras el follaje
flameando de las obsesiónes
igual efimero como gotas
del cinzano de la soledad –

En aquel tiempo me levanta
dentro uno incidente avejentado
que en seguida palidece
al camouflaje de abstraccion;

chica, nadie conoce que tus grisos
ojos significan aún; con todo
el sueño que hube evacuado
tu escudriñas nuevamente.

My Spanish poetry!



Un orage nocturne illmuna maintenant l'Amazonie, franchis les Andes, envoya des jeux de cartes gigantesques et frappantes en bas à la Pampa –

Puis: petit déjeuner à melon; café fumant !

À la bague du cigare tu lis, étonné: GÉOGRAPHIE.



Das Leben dergleichen Halbfaßung
der Welt wahr immer nicht wahr,
nicht wahr? Die fristlos Entlaßung
am Ende wird kaum wunderbar.

So laßen uns Menschlingen viele
besonders besonnene zum
Zeitweilegem Zeiten als Ziele
des Lebens halbfaßen darum.

Fremde Gedichte


We need a new analysis of probability. My hypothesis is that disorder is as constant as energy, since increasing material disorder, entropy, is counterbalanced by increasing structural regularity, symmetry. I tell you the Law of Entropy and the Law of Symmetry, ruling approximatively equal universal validity derive through bifurcation of the still more basic Law of Probability, that is, math, and rather simple math at that. Can you dig this?

My philosophy:



And I am a very experienced I Ching practitioner, not for fortunetelling ,but for Wisdom and Spiritual Devclopment. Heavy stuff:


And: reciprocity. You do me a favor promoting your blog on mine!

I love everything about this, from ballerina Sophia to the starbucks and the little mouse, such fun!

Yes, there were a few things that i picked up from sophia's sketches, that remind me of her, the blue, the heart and the turtles!

Sophia said...

Julia Christie said...

What a great sketch Heather!!! You have captured her so well! I too look forward to sharing with all the great artists that participate each week, and feel I have truly made a friend in you! I never leave your place without feeling happy and smiling...

Hugs and smiles my friend!

Julia Christie said...

Oh, I forgot to respond to your suggestion for a coloring book...That is a great idea. I do color and ink at the same time with my pieces, not the complete sketch and then add color, so I would have to change my process, but that is a wonderful idea. I used to do the complete ink drawing first, and my daughter loved to get a copy and color it as she liked.
I'll have to try that again.

thanks for the sweet comments about how she turned out too!

Debbie said...

What an adorable tribute in both picture and word! I've enjoyed coming to your blog and getting to know you Heather!

WrightStuff said...

Oh wow, look at that, how special!! No wonder Sophia was totally over the moon, it's a wonderful creation Heather. I love my weekly visits too - such a great bunch and a complete variety of styles - always a pleasure.

In answer to your question, my canvas goddess measures 15" x 20" and the gold one in my sketchbook is 8" x 12"
