~ Pollination ~
Words, sounds, visuals dispersed
Touching open souls
Today had some fun after resting at the appropriate times and waking rather early. The whole day was open and waiting to be filled. I immediately had some coffee and saw my partner off to work. Afterwards I sent out some CV’s to several job openings and now that waiting period is at hand.
When this was done, I thought I will sketch in my greenhouse and check on the flowers I planted. Naturally there were some cute little budding plants starting to sprout from. Some always seem so sad when you see a huge compact piece of dirt on top of this little arching flower, ready to seize the day. I managed to snap a couple shots before of course being a little disappointed in our two cats but only briefly. I know they just want to say hi and spend time with me at least that’s what every cat caretaker hopes. I hope they need me lol, but I don’t think they minded either way.
They both decided to rip and tear their way to the top of the green house for the best views. Once I was finished with watering the beds, I sat down and just started sketching.
I think my haiku and title sums up my thinking. I was focused on pollen and pollination and the notion of all the pollinating we do as a social species in so many shapes and forms. For others and I at times it can be overwhelming, but visually depicted this way I wanted to express something beautiful. Instead the weightiness of the infinite forms it takes as it encloses and presses in on us all, in the end possibly crushing us. I thought of this urgency in the pallet vibrant yet so light and airy as it bleeds into a heavier more intense feeling encumbering us completely.
While Finishing up I thought I like the effect of dawn til dusk.
This last image was under the process, but for some reason I also loved it this way fleshed without color.
