Like a watergod out of water- Frick Collection New York City

Found this page in my notebook, a souvenir of a visit in a NYC museum. There was this little statue, (as an interpretation of a greek legend, but I forgot which:), a water-god with his lover), and this golden grandfather clock, with rich ornaments. I cut the sketches out of another notebook and scotch-taped them into the moleskin.

I'm feeling a bit like this water-god there, sitting on my chair as if I'd left my element which would be the water, where I would be much more nimble and elegant than here, on the land, where I shlep like a walrus today.....

Well, tomorrow I will draw myself an eagle:)

Do hope you are soaring soon.

Maybe you are feeling out of sorts being back from NYC and a Month in the country. Nothing exciting to look forward to at the moment. Yes do draw an eagle and go flying. :)Miss doodle used to do some flying. :)

Yes, soaring is good. I know what you mean about feeling out of your element. I feel like that often, I promise you. When I have to step out of my comfortable right brained self, I feel that way. It is okay, just remember how good it feels when you are in your element and paint about it when you are not! :-)

Here is energy to get yourself comfortable again! Hugs!

I was in NYC last week...I had planned on visiting the Frick Collection, but it was pouring down rain, and I would of had to take the subway all by myself, so I did not go. Great blog!!!
