These felt like they flowed more smoothly – some of my first ones may get re-done, and soon I hope to have postcard size reproductions available!
Just having fun with more BioGeometry signatures. This concept continues to resonate with me.
Enjoy viewing these. I hope you receive some of the energy that has flowed into each. 💕

BioGeometry signatures are a branch of BioGeometry, and I found this science and its shapes fascinating and have attempted to incorporate some with my art. The lines are intended to be drawn in one complete swoop, so they end looking imperfect, but then, art is not meant to be perfect. 😉
Here are my efforts so far – not my typical subject or style, but they were an enjoyable effort! If any of these resonate with you, and you’d like a print, they are available with or without the text shown here.
In gratitude on Memorial Day –
We stayed at motels in NZ, surprisingly comfy, clean and with kitchen facilities. It’s a very friendly country for hikers and campers. Breakfast was typically groceries purchased by Phil, our guide, that we could take and each enjoy in our rooms before leaving for the day.
This day we headed to Cathedral Cove, accessible only on foot or by boat. Of course, the ferry wasn’t running the day we went! A beautiful sunny day, but I guess the sea wasn’t cooperating. So it was on foot in and out, up and down around the hills, about 2 miles with an elevation change of 500 ft. People swam, took selfies for social media and enjoyed the gorgeous beach and rock formations. One of our group was upended by the strong surf! Glad she was okay!
There were also perfect places to rest and sketch on the return walk.
We all enjoyed a well-deserved ice cream on our return!
When you spend time in the sun with footwear like this,
you can end up with a Maori-inspired tan! (More about Maori art later. 😉)
Organizing a bit on this perfect summer day, I came across my calendar collection. I’ve been making these as gifts since 2012! Eight years of paper calendars led to adding planners, a perpetual calendar and even my first book. Looking at these evokes emotions, when I see my older works, it can bring me right back to the moments it was being created.
For 2020, I wonder if you can tell me something – how many of you still use paper calendars? Even mine has been more of a wall decoration, than for practical time planning. Maybe I should just make planners for those of us still inclined to use pen and paper? Or smaller calendars that are more image without space to write.
I’d love to hear your opinions!
Don’t get me wrong, I really like hawks! But, I do have a favorite – the eagle. I’m so glad they have made a comeback, and there’s quite a few here in the upstate NY area. Today, a grey and gloomy February day, I walked the Two Rivers Greenway in Endicott.
There’s an island you can see from the bridge that goes to Vestal, and there’s a flag I always see on it. So, I found a bench and sat down to sketch it. I shot a reference photo, and didn’t notice an eagle sitting in a tree on the other side of the river, because a branch was in the way. I got about 3 lines drawn, when I moved my head a little and saw it. Bold as can be, an eagle looking down river.
He didn’t stay long, and soon took off. But, I thought it only went a little way, and went to look for it upriver. Throwing my sketch stuff in pockets, I hustled to find it.
Found him in a tree a little upriver, and oh joy! There were two!
After a half hour and tons of photos, the second one looked like it was getting ready to move, so I put my camera on movie mode. The first video is 38 seconds, but listen, and you’ll hear an eagle screech. Chills.
After catching it flying away on video, I decided it was okay to leave. Seeing them was such a wonderful gift!
Do you get a thrill when you spot a hawk or eagle?
I recently traveled a few times along NY Rte I-86 between Binghamton and Elmira. I’ve been working on my hawk-spotting, and have seen as many as 17 during the one hour drive. There’s even been a few eagles along the way. The hawks inspired these sketches.
Sending best wishes for a fantastic 2019!
I hope you continue to create whatever you are best at!
