Send Godzilla after that virus!

I just took a Textures online class with Roz Stendahl. It was so fun, And it has enlivened my drawing practice. The textured backgrounds call to me - "come over here, make a mark, it doesn't matter if it's perfect, lets have some fun." This one is fluid acrylics, splattered on, spray from a mouth atomizer and some washi tape. The mouth atomizer is fantastic. I love the spray and the mess. I want to start writing a little bit every day, just something about my day or my state of mind. I need to start thinking about leaving a place for text.

Dream in Color

I’m on a train with other people. We all have these colors in big puddles - we’re trying to keep them separate. We're flying into the sky on the train. At first we are jubilant - we have color and are flying. But then the areas of color get bigger and bigger. I realize we can’t control them. They will all join together and take over everything. People start to fall into the clouds. I jump off the train. I fall through the sky. A giant boulder gets closer and closer - then I hit it - splat. And am reborn. The colors are free. I wake.
