Thank You!

As summer ends

With Labor day celebrated here in the U.S. it kind of represents the ending of summer and for northern places a changing of seasons. To mark this passing I have put together both a doodle and accompanying scene. I hope you find them enjoyable!

[Begin scene]

The lush and vibrant greens of summer find themselves amongst new company…

Deep oranges and browns start to dot the landscape as the next season emerges…

Still the bright purples of seasons before are not yet forgotten…

And summer’s fine memories will settle in too…

Somewhere inside where they’ll warm you clear through.

Flash in the Night

[Begin scene]

A distant horizon made silhouette by a bright flash…

The clouds alight with bright blues and purples…

A streak of energy joining land and sky…

The rumble of thunder felt nearby…

Beauty and power.

Man of Stone

[Begin scene]

Inside a church…

Cathedral ceiling, stone columns, stained glass windows…

An altar of stone, a marble statue nearby in a place of honor…

The statue, a man in flowing robes, his knowing eyes look at you…

His arms outstretched in welcome anyway

Acceptance, Forgiveness.

Introducing: MindEscapes Doodles!

Doodles are computer based sketches I find relaxing to create and sometimes interesting just to stare at for awhile. Having some positive feedback from people who have seen some of them in the past I’ve decided to share some here from time to time (not daily that is). I hope they provide you with a few minutes of quiet when you view them!

Heading south

Just imagine…

[Begin scene]

A pond shimmers from the cool breeze…

Leaves drift down from a nearby tree…

A flock of geese, once resting on the water, take flight…

A collage of whites and blacks stark against the sky…

Once in formation they journey on to warmer lands.

Fetch!

Clear your mind, read the description slowly, let your imagination unfold and paint a masterpiece in your mind…

[Begin scene]

Shifting clouds adrift in a bright blue sky…

A hillside clothed in short rich green grass…

Upon it a boy with an outstretched arm…

A stick sailing away at a rapid pace…

A tan colored puppy racing along in anticipation…

Care free on a summers day.
