The Frog and the Water Lily


The truth is I can't draw water lilies..well, not yet. There are certain things I just can't draw...like hands...and well, water lilies. But this drawing came about directly from watching a guitarist on Youtube. She composes and plays just as if she were painting a picture or telling a story. Here's the link to Annette Kruisbrink playing "The Frog and the Water Lily."

Bike run uneventful. The sea is the colour of stained glass windows today.

First Flight.

I can never decide which I like better...drawing or colouring in? What shall I call her? They usually come out of the Wacom tablet already named.

Anyway, here's a link to a great cartoonist and he always has the perfect soundtrack.

What are you doing up here?

I met a flasher yesterday. He was actually waiting for me on the cycle track after he had seen that was where I was heading. Terrific, now I can't cycle there until summer when there are people around.
Still, first guitar class of the year yesterday. Surprised the teacher by playing halfway through a piece by memory. Surprised myself. He's trying to get me to go on a two day guitar course in a town not that near to here. I've refused every year because of the agoraphobia stuff but I really want to go. But it would probably take four hours to get there with the train combinations. Arrg, I'm just talking myself out of it! I hate agoraphobia...
