The first of the oracle cards, intuitively painted in watercolour and ink from meditating on and connecting with one of the backgrounds was TREE; one of the earth cards.
Keywords: Strength, security, grounded, protection, gateway, watchful, guardian, truth, knowledge.
Thoughts: Deep within the bowels of the tree, beneath layers of bark and wood lies a path to the hidden self and wisdom of the Universe. TREE is both the guardian and the gateway to self discovery. Know that any steps of exploration that are taken through the hidden doorway in the trunk are taken with support, protection and under the watchful eye of TREE’s spirit. No harm will come to you on this journey and only truth will answer your questions.

From humble beginnings over coffee; a splash of patience and a sprinkle of connection…
Great things can be born:
But then I suppose that can be said of a lot of things, not just doodling.

This set focuses on painting with other utensils than brushes to create different, interesting textures and marks. The first two were painted intuitively direct onto acrylic paper, in acrylic with a palette knife. The third (the purpley one) was painted in the same way using an old spoon and plastic fork rather than a palette knife:

Another Midori ink doodle/drawing, this one started as a single, simple leaf design and grew into this instead:

I am still doodling. For the most part my ink drawings are done out of the house when I am in town with my notebook and ink pen. I am finding it to be a wonderful way to relax and get grounded, particularly in the mornings and evenings if I feel like I am in a bit of a muddle mentally.
This one is a page in my Midori Traveller’s Notebook. It began as a single flower and then morphed into a longer, full page design in black ink:

Three experiments with watercolours on watercolour paper. The pure coloured paint was added in thin transparent layers allowing each to dry in the first two, while the third was worked on slightly damp paper, to build up interesting marks, textures and colour combinations. It always amazes me how one medium can be used to create so many different effects.
