Cosmic Art: the weird, the masked, the slideshow

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.)

This one has a masked theme (for we all wear them) and is drawn with Prismacolor oil along with Derwent watercolour pencils on black paper…pour vous!

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!


A drawing ~ Flowers of India ~

‘Flowers of India’ drawing by Jude Cowell, imported from my Secret Moon Art collection and inspired by my love of nature and by incense from India.


New! A Dreamyfish Art Calendar 2010 is ready for you @ my Zazzle Art Shop if you should need one with 12 botanical fish drawings to mark your months as they whiz by.

tech gremlins play on Turtle Lane

Flowers of India

Two days ago i was crowingly happy that my phone service provider, whose name starts with A and ends in T, had admitted their culpability and repaired a line which made interwebbing possible again here on Turtle Lane.

And my isp, whose name starts with E and ends in K had seemingly not been to blame for recent tech difficulties.

Yesterday, in my happy-as-a-clam state, I signed on to blog and….a big fat nothing. Unlike the evening before, no pages would load, no links would open–you get the picture. No email, no new photos from my family, zilch.

Today I sign in and voila! All pages open almost before I click on them and all’s magically right with the interweb!

Are tech gremlins dancing with my stars? Is the ‘interweb’ (thanks, Craig Ferguson) being coy or simply two-tiered?

I have no idea, but today my schedule is open for blogging purposes, and I will get as much done while the Window is open as the interweb allows.

But getting caught up with email? Puh! Impossible!

Am adding a thumbnail of one of my drawings just to soften the morning’s whine….but which one shall it be?

UPDATE July 8: made thw switch to a new isp and so far it’s a vast improvement! Loathed going to the big spy telecommer in the sky, but these days aren’t they all?

The Dalai Lama, the White House, and the Gold Medal


Green tea is served at the White House today! (Just kidding…they could be toasting with Red Bull for all I know.)

Tibetan spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama XIV (the 14th, for those who are Roman Numeral-challenged!) drops by the White House and is to receive the Congressional Gold Medal of Honor Wednesday with George Bush by his side for the photo-op.

Therefore: China is in a snit, Bush’s timing of public support is being questioned, and I’ve posted the Dalai Lama’s natal chart with a few details, including his Pre-Natal Eclipse Series, here:


Hmmm…awards, awards…now can this much-hyped Gold Medal wash the taste of Al Gore’s Nobel-Prize-winning out of Bush’s gob?  And why miff China? (Why is Congress putting Turkey in a snit for that matter–to interfere with Bush’s prosecution of the Iraq occupation?)

The above-linked post contains mention of a new book just arrived in my terra mailbox for Sabian Symbol interpretation, Australian astrologer Lynda Hill’s ‘360 Degrees of Wisdom’ which may be found at http://www.sabiansymbols.com

and I recommend it highly!

“There are two lasting bequests we can give our children: One is roots, the other is wings.” Teaching children values and giving them the opportunity to excel is essential to good parenting. However, I feel I must also provide my children (and myself) insight into the ones who came before us: our ancestors whose lives and stories have shaped us into who we are. This is my journey; these are their stories…
