Three Art questions for you: Do you love to draw? Or did you used to love to draw when you were a kid? Have you engaged in drawing or doodling in the last little while?
Then you may wish to check out details about this Saturday’s Drawing Day! The ultimate goal of the project is to gather one million drawings from across the globe with entries posted in an online art gallery.There are several options for how to download your art offering (flickr, Red Bubble, create a YouTube video, and more) with a chance to be published in the Drawing Day book.
So if drawing is your thing, check it out or simply mosey by the Drawing Day website on Saturday and afterwards to see what art has been uploaded!
Plus, on a heavier note, here’s another question: Is the Strauss-Kahn Arrest Linked to Missing US Gold? with notes on today’s Solar Eclipse in Gemini conjoining US natal Uranus 8Gem55 and transiting Midas, that lover and hoarder of gold.
My drawing shown above, A Fairy’s Secret Valley, is the sort of ‘mystical’ pencil illustration (suitable for children) that is often published at Secret Moon Art and I hope you’ll flit by when you can…
Here is one of the weird sort of drawings I perpetrate from time to time: Cosmic Persona in Flux which was originally published at Cosmic Persona Designs (for 17+ only due to mild adult content.)
Now I use the watercolour pencils dry only but naturally they work well with water if you prefer. And do try them on black paper if you haven’t for I think you’ll like the brilliant colors, depth, and special effects which may be achieved.
For 24/7 art browsing you’re cordially invited to mosey by my Zazzle Art Shop.
Or how about taking a moment to view my ‘Cosmic Flowers Art’ Slideshow? You’ll discover that one of my more popular drawings on this blog, ‘Flowers of India’, is included in the floral display!
If you know anything about the professional world of Astrology, you know the work and reputation of master astrologer Donna Cunningham, author of 17 books which include her invaluable ‘Healing Pluto Problems’.
For her stellar contributions to the Astrology community, Donna is a recipient of the prestigious Regulus Award, which here on earth is as far in the heavens as you can go in the realm of the ancient art.
So naturally I am herefore ‘pleased as a puppy with two tails’ to announce our collaboration When Art and Astrology Combine, a guest post that Donna graciously requested from yours truly and which contains a link to a Private Art Show set up for Donna’s wonderful SkyWriter readers…and for you, if you’d care to take an Art Browse of Cosmic and Moon Art images.
So please enjoy and be refreshed…and shine on Harvest Moon in Aries!
Care for a brief yet soothing stroll through mystical forests?
Then wake up your sleepy-faced Inner Divine Child and have a peek! You know you want to…
This. is. an. Art. Experiment.
Wonder if a link to my Spaces Live blog will take you to a display of an
Art Slideshow with a variety of themes for viewing, as you like.
My sort of usual suspects are there to represent these imprints: Dreamyfish Art, Cosmic Persona Designs, and Secret Moon Art, too.
Plus, a ‘Boudoir Blossoms’ image may show up in the mix as well.
Anyway, it’s the closest to Frisky Friday Art I have for you this week especially since images use So Much Space here on WordPress, don’t they?
Here’s a brand new drawing, Bella Chella! – and it looks as if she’s ready for some weekend partying, si? Have a good one!
Prismacolor oil and Rexel Derwent watercolour pencils on paper; by jude cowell 1.30.09
Come visit me at Red Bubble, too…as you wish:
Or for children’s, botanical, moon, and cosmic art try:
Monday is the Moon’s day and since the Aquarian Solar Eclipse is fresh (occurring here at 2:55 am est), I thought a shout-out to Luna on her day was a good way to begin the week.
Drawing: Prismacolor oil, Rexel Derwent watercolour pencils (dry) on black paper; perpetrated by Jude Cowell, natal Moon in Pisces, Sun in Capricorn.
So now, for all of us who were born with Sun in Capricorn-Moon in Pisces:
Sun Cap-Moon Pisces (Earth-Water): scientist and poet; a pragmatic dreamer; an imaginative organizer; tough and tender; dependable but private; both practical and dreamy.
Self-reflection makes this combo serious and solemn at times but allows deep insight into others’ plights. A natural humanitarian with a penchant for mystery, this blend makes for one who isn’t always sure if she’s the cat’s meow or something the cat dragged in.
Quietly bringing order out of chaos is a talent (which astrologers recognize as a helpful trait!), and there’s a capacity to give form and substance to imagination.
Weaknesses include: fear of the unknown, a pathetic tendency to carry other people’s burdens, and a tendency to lose confidence through negative thought patterns.
The Sun Cap-Moon Pisces blend is shared natally by:
Benjamin Franklin (an astrologer, as you know), Paul Cezanne (one of my top 3 favorite Impressionists), Elvis Presley (well, as a kid I liked his music), J. Edgar Hoover (ee-euww!), Sandy Koufax (saw him play on TV watching baseball with my Dad), Ava Gardner (now there was a beauty), Keith Thomas (author of ‘Religion and the Decline of Magic’), and J. R. R. Tolkein (read ‘The Hobbit’ when it was brand new but couldn’t get through all of The Trilogy, it wore me out! Sorry.)
Let’s hear a peep from Ben – here is one of the more practical bits of advice from Ben Franklin – it’s one of my favorites of his quotes:
‘Dost thou love life? Then do not squander time, for that’s the stuff life is made of.’
And Astrology is what brings the element of Time to the table!
Images for Integration:
‘A wine collector uncorks a rare vintage to celebrate a success…A child builds a sandcastle of reinforced concrete…Bilbo in Tolkein’s ‘Lord of the Rings’…’Bathers in a Landscape’ by Cezanne…Elvis Presley’s ‘Blue Suede Shoes’. (‘Sun Sign-Moon Sign’ by Chas & Suzi Harvey.)
The ‘sandcastle/reinforced concrete’ reminds me of his help in founding America, ya know? Ideal-idea of freedom into manifestation and all that, with Uranus, planet of revolution and rebellion, discovered in 1781 – between the American Revolution and the French Revolution.
So it was Uranus’ creative spark (Plato’s Ideal) poured into Saturnian form, circa 1776, and voila! a New Atlantis: America.
Well, thanks for taking a meander with me down a Moonlight Path on the Moon’s Day. Hope you enjoyed yourself!
See my combo of Sun Cap-Moon Pisces in action as I attempt to blend realism (botanical fish drawings) with imaginary surroundings (seen within their favorite dreams) here:
The above drawing is from:
Rather an oddish piece. A bit of a ‘Boudoir Blossom’ lady, a dancer type, but different.
It’s a copy of a drawing from the Summer Olympics 1996, Atlanta, GA., ‘Moonbeam Lake’ photographed small and collaged into a newer figure study for my 17+er art gallery at:
Two drawings were accepted in a city exhibition, one of which was ‘Moonbeam Lake’ which was originally from a children’s book dummy I was putting together at the time, ‘Silvery Tree Path.’
So-named ‘shroom-homes figured into the tale as elfish abodes with fairies playing about unseen…hence my primary imprint 1995 to the present and beyond: Unscene World.
The lighted look in the drawing-as-painting that’s ‘hanging’ on the screen is achieved by embossing with an aluminum pencil – Prismacolor’s ‘Silver.’
And here’s a link to a partial view of the Great Lichen Forest where the Roscoe Woodhouse story ‘Silvery Tree Path’ plays out…
Update Saturday 2:53 pm est: a fresh image is uploaded of a new drawing, ‘ShroomHome on Silvery Tree Path’ which continues the elfin theme…
The drawing isn’t quite complete, but perhaps you may enjoy it all the same!
Plus, another note: the Adult Content Warning has been temporarily lifted for a day or so in order for crawling to take place…seems the Art Blog is about to be kicked off URLTrends due to inaccessibility.
Cosmic Persona Designs’ Content Warning for the 17+ers among us will be replaced very soon. The blog, is, however, only my Artwork – figure studies, designs really – no artsy photos on the premises, and none sought.
It’s Art for Art’s Sake with this apt hint: CPD displays only a little Chiffonery Art…frothy and fun.
Tropical storm Fay has killed 4 people already and is on her way toward the Florida Straits and the Gulf of Mexico, and is set to sweep through Cuba first, they said on my TV.
Fay – or ‘Faye’ in my family! - is a faerie-esque name that I’ve always liked and have even used it for one of my archetypal drawings, Faye’s Magic Lamp. Not much magic in stormy Fay, however, and I wish all well who may find themselves in her path.
It does seem that bad weather follows eclipses and August has been replete with Solar and Lunar lunations, hasn’t it? And August, forever my least favorite month, isn’t over yet.
So here’s a small something for the 17+ers (which may be two out of three readers, as I realize daily – otherwise who keeps searching for the word, ‘weed’?)…anyway, you may have seen this drawing’s image on this very blog, but here’s the original publishment of Faye’s Magic Lamp:
And how about a link to a brief Cosmic Art SlideShow for the Moon Art-inclined?
There! now you’re all hooked up, but no weed included, you naughty monkeys…well, except for:
