Dancing in the Shadow Lands

This is a new design recently done using colored pencils. I am experimenting with simplifying the design elements even more using implied lines to fill in the rest of the shape of the subject. My love of horses has lead me to trying this with them as the subject matter first. Look for more designs to come.

I love the idea that our minds will fill in what is not seen with our eyes. However this can be both good and bad as we often perceive things differently from how they actually are. Each persons paradigm differs from others which leads to a variety of interpretations.

What do you see? In the picture above and in your own life? What things do you think you see clearly but are putting your own spin on it based on your bias and experiences?

We often dance in the shadow lands of reality, thinking we have it all figured out when there is so much more going on than our eyes can see and minds can comprehend and these are often the moments when Grace is Unveiled. -Maleko

"May the blessings and grace of the

Remember the littlest things can mean
the most when Grace is Unveiled!"

We 3 Trees!

A star on top, a tree at night all dressed in purple and blue.
Against a back drop of black, purple trees sparkle in starlight.

Santa and his shadow?

A sharpie drawing of Santa Claus using simple outlines of shapes to portray an image that has been endlessly done in so many ways. Always looking for new variations and new ways of seeing what we often take for granted because it has been viewed so many times.

The second image is a digital 'negative' using paint shop pro. I am fascinated by the colors on a black background. It makes for some very interesting and unusual images.

A Praying Man

Why does prayer seem to be the last thing we do in times of need? If we only realized that we are looked upon with favor and love at all times, just waiting for us to ask.
