EDM Gloves, Doodles, Sketches, & a Blue Hound

I seem to have had a temporary block with being creative for the last few weeks and have fallen out of the habit of drawing every day. At least, I hope it's temporary. I have managed to do a few doodles and sketches despite not being able to really focus on what I was doing.

The Butterfly Effect, above, is sort of a zen doodle with red and black markers that I did while just sort of letting my mind wander. It started with the shape of butterfly wings and went crazy. It reminds me that everything affects everything else in this world, like a ripple, for better or worse.

Just a little still life set up with the porcelin rabbit, doll ballet shoes, and a perfume bottle. I love the shapes of the rabbit and the bottle. You probably noticed that I've sketched them a few times. Ordinarily, I sketch something once and I'm done with it. Once in a while I fall in love with an object and honor it more than once with an attempted sketch or painting.

Blue Hound is a doodle sketch and completed another Moleskine sketchbook for me. For some reason he speaks to me and I like him. :)

EDM Gloves challenge-I got these warm soft gloves for Christmas. They are actually a pearl gray color and have a hat and scarf to match. They are one of the last gifts my sister-in-law gave me. I drew them with pencil, used watercolor pencils, then outlined them and made the spirals with a black sharpie.
The sketch below is also of the same gloves with the hat sketched in pencil. Not the best of sketches, but I thought I'd share them anyway.

Hopefully, I'll be back on a more regular basis soon. Meanwhile I hope at least one of these made you smile. :)

Your zendoodle butterfly is so very tactile and flowing - until I read the post, I thought it a contribution to ArtHearts for Haiti. And your Blue Hound is quite wonderful. Wishing you all good things.
