We're back home now, missing the wee Chihuahua and the great expanse of ocean out the windows... This past week I had a lot of fun drawing big skies. Numbers 2, 3, and 4, were created in the sequence you see with #2 being the original colours I chose, then I edited them bringing a whole new feeling, I thought, to each one... Number 5 is a panoramic shot I took one morning after a storm.
We've moved into a beautiful home beside the ocean to care for a sweet Chihuahua named Louie for ten days. He hasn't made it into a DM image yet, but the beautiful sunrise has...

I had so much fun this week creating Dear Merebeth images with words as well as creating Asemic Writing pieces, some of which I simply filtered to change the colour, very happy with how the impact of the shapes changed with colour variance. A recurring theme in D.M., "the couch" came back in full force this week.
It was a busy morning this first Saturday of October... With a cat curled up beside me, I created an image then filtered it several times, each time being inspired to write a new poem using a haiku form of 5-7-5 though not always writing it out that way... Below, they are numbered in sequence from 1 to 7
#1 Oct 1 2016 Above is the first one I made using a finger painting app with multiple brush types. The stick figure has figured prominently in my Dear Merebeth work for several months now.
#2 October 1 2016 A happy accident. The plum and the gold and the inferred shininess of the ribbon, ah... I crawled into this.
#3 October 1 2016 I was so knocked out by the colour of the ribbon, I had to include it in a poem...
#4 October 1 2016 Going from chartreuse on the brain to magenta - a natural progression for me...
#5 October 1 2016 Again, messing about with colour filtering brought unexpected results that inspired.
#6 October 1 2016 Heartbreaking pink gets me every time...
#7 October 1 2017 In this one, I had to capitalize Promise, thinking of it as a guiding light for D.M...

Dear Merebeth is the brainchild of Laura Smith - an award-winning singer and songwriter living in Nova Scotia. Started in the early days of 2015 as a Facebook page, Dear Merebeth
"I now look forward each day to digesting each of your tidbits that you dole out via Dear Merebeth. I have started thinking of lines that I might write in response or words that complement your piece. Thank you,Laura, for this daily portion of your passion." ~ CF
