Turkey sandwich, anyone?

  • Rust is beautiful.
  • Who knew squirrels were so photogenic?
  • Artist turns very plain buildings into works of art with her wildflower murals.
  • Beautiful zentangles.
  • Ten things every writer needs.
  • Incredibly detailed drawings.
  • If you’re as old as me, perhaps you’re discouraged that the ideal of the American dream that we grew up with has degenerated into nightmare capitalism, where the rich grow richer and everyone else grows poorer. It’s time for a reset. I am so looking forward to reading this new book and hopeful for a new direction for our country and the world.
  • Monoprinting tutorial. I’ve never done this. I would have to buy supplies. Maybe I will someday. Or I could request this stuff from Santa. . .
  • Where do quilters get their ideas?
  • If you love Zentangle, you might like this Instagram page.
  • Sketching around the ‘hood.
  • Something for the Post-Pandemic Bucket List (see ARHtistic License tomorrow for more): a trip to Singapore, even if you don’t leave the Jewel Changi Airport.

Today’s prompt is creating from the heart.

Quilting tips
 
when you make a quilt, you think of the recipient
you choose fabrics in colors your loved one loves
or prints that relate to the person in some way
you imagine them swathed in its comfort
and you make their dreams come true
all your design choices show your love
each stitch you make is like a kiss
and when they wrap themselves up in the quilt
it’s like your arms embracing them
