pen and ink, crayon, caran d'ache

Well, Sacred Silliness Saturday came and went, and now it's SS Sunday. Better late than never, I always say. Yesterday found me in bed most of the day, too tired to spend much time in front of the computer. Instead, I colored and napped. I was trying to finish what I was doing, but my body's need for sleep won out. Art is supposed to be fun and I refused to pressure myself into some kind of self-imposed deadline.

So this is what I chose to show here for this week's doodle. I colored this image intuitively. What I mean is that I chose colors randomly by pulling my crayons out of a bag without looking at what I chose. It was a fun experiment.

I have posted another of my doodles on my other blog at xanga. I love this daily colorful meditation and look forward to it before falling asleep. I enjoy that I have remained true to my intent of doodling once a day every day, which I made after Leah's November challenge to be creative every day. You can see my other doodles here, at flickr.

I finally finished this doodle and just couldn't wait until next week to post it!

I have indulged myself in the laziest of days, today. It's been a while since I've gone through the whole day in my jammies. The rain has been coming down steadily; after dinner I am looking forward to cozying up to my art pad and ink pen again. Doodlemania! Woohoo!

I love this doodle very much. I wouldn't mind having that on the wall of my living room! How large is it?

Love these doodles (still)! Kokopeli is amazing, and love the title. I know that feeling well of having worked the whole week and being so exhausted on Saturday that you have to rest away the day. Do what you have to do, my dear. Rest is what you need.

Hi Sue,
I love the happy title of your newest doodle creation! It's such a joy to see all that color as I gaze out the window at over a foot of snow. It looks like you're having a lot of fun.

Sue, I love your masterful mandalas, and I love your playful doodles. Very talented lady, you are. No wonder your body insists on a nap sometimes.
