drawing of moth - mixed media, (c) 2011 by Lipson.
Just when I was about to leave home for hospital this last Wednesday, I opened my letterbox, just to check in, and I found an amazing moth ( a butterfly that lives at night and seeks dark places like the inside of a letterbox).
It hopped right on my hand and started vibrating intensely... I wonder what this vibration meant fear for his life? fear of daylight? or just the sheer vibration of life? In any case, it was amazing!
Just as i tried to reach for my camera without frigntening him too much, he took flight! But I drew him afterwards, for you to see...
Happy Friday everyone! I will rest and stroll in the Magic Park. What about you?
This is Vic from TeaButterfly speaking from the hospital. Now forget what you know about hospitals. This one's special. It is set in a beautiful old, decaying palace with a great big park with a magical atmosphere, moss-covered statues everywhere, the hospital's cats napping in the sun, and koi fish swimming in an old pond. Recent additions include fountains and the water murmur in the morning while you stroll there is most uplifting.
The whole place is so picturesque, it is sure to lift one's spirit and and a quick cure is sure to happen soon. I've been taking lots of photos and will show you a selection when i'm back.
I've also taken my black ink and my brushes with me and i've been drawing this morning, so more to come art-wise.
I'm Naomi (aka Vic) Lipson. So glad you stopped by!
