Flyaway Thoughts

November 20th, 2010

For day 20 of Art Every Day Month, I got off to a bit of a late start. We had a late night at the movies and then we had a fun afternoon babysitting my best friends 1 year old twins (so cute!) After a nap, I sat down to sketch and this idea popped right into my head. Again, I worked with the Inktense pencils on watercolor paper.

The latest Harry Potter movie was great by the way. The only part I didn't like was the crew of teenage girls who talked through the entire movie. Grr. But I thought it was one of the best of the series and very well acted. I may have to see it again (hopefully in a quieter theater!)

My thoughts do this quite often!

Yes, I can relate to the fly away thoughts…it happens too often to me these days. I am blaming it on perimenopause issues. I am going to Harry Potter this week I hope. I cannot wait!

:-) she looks like I feel… except she is taller and thinner! LOL

What a lovely painting! Love how her hair unfolds into birds!

wonderful concept…love how the hair takes flight

Her hair turning into birds is great, I can’t believe the beautiful ideas you get.

i love this women

love the way you can translate a thought into your art, Leah

Love this, such a dreamy piece.

I really like how the hair becomes birds. really good.

This has a fantasy fiction feel to it – perhaps inspired by your Harry Potter experience. I can’t wait to see this new film.

Kat :-)

I love the birds coming out of her hair Leah and the way her face tilts.

Another beautiful dreamy piece, Leah!

I love her thoughts flying out of her hair. Lovely.

One of the reasons my husband and I are waiting for Harry Potter is so we don’t have to put up with annoying people in a crowded theater. It seems I have no patience for that kind of thing anymore.

She’s beautiful Leah! Sometimes I’m hesitant to watch the Harry Potter movies because I can’t help but compare them to the books. That’s a lot of information to pack into a movie! I’m glad you enjoyed it even with the yappy pack of girls.

I love the lady with the flying hair – it reminds me of something Roald Dahl would write about or something Dali would paint. Nicely done.
