Indian ink and a feather 'Sisters'

 I have had a few days in which things have felt rather as if I am not coping. I think I am but trying to get motivated has not been easy.
so I decided to tidy up my work room and make more space.
While I was doing this I found a feather and a piece of paper and a bottle of Indian ink.
These were just done free hand and I rather liked the primitive look of them.
I think they remind me a lot of the stuff Cathy Cullis does and which I love, ( sorry I cant work out how to put in a link to her site now blogger has altered things) she also translated her stuff into stitch and I would like to have a play at doing that too.
I now have more space, found lots of things I had forgotten I had, but... still more to be done!
I have an online class I just havent been able to get my head around and have felt that perhaps I should leave that for a while.
Small steps.
Perhaps it is because I am trying to get thank you letters out to all who sent cards to us. Brings it all back, and I am not in as much control as I would like.
Off to make a few more small steps.

Hello Penny. Are you trying to do too much? Sometimes we just have to give tidying up a miss even though mess drives us mad. At present the family here are renovating the lounge room floor and the chaos is spectacular with stuff on the verandah, here and there and some things in the rain outside" So I just disappear to read a book.

Penny, this sketch has enormous appeal. You should do more of these. Brava.
I do hope you are feeling better today. Making a good piece of art is often the best medicine.

I really like this sketch you've created! It's quite appealing, though I'm not sure why.
Doing something like sorting can keep our hands busy, and put to right the things we can, when all is not right in our world. This has been a difficult time, and I'm sending you a big hug. Take care.
