A Year of Creating Dangerously, Day 261: Illustrated Quote for Monday

Today I Have Grown Taller

Following that creative vibe down whatever path it leads me – That sums up my approach to art for the most part.

Last week I illustrated a couple of quotes that I like with ink pen and colored markers and published them here. This week I want to share more with you. I didn’t intend for them to be focused on hiking, the woods, etc. at the beginning but, as that is a love of mine, they ended up that way (Just following the vibe down the path!).

For Monday here is a quote by the American poet Karle Wilson Baker. The concept I had in my mind and drew on paper came across a little hard to read! My apologies for that. This is what she wrote: “Today I have grown taller from walking with the trees” – a sentiment I greatly connect with after time spent in the forest!

A Year of Creating Dangerously, Day 57: Sunday God Quote – Karle Wilson Baker

This Sunday’s God quote is a poem by American poet Karle Wilson Baker (1878-1960), a university professor and writer from Texas who succeeded in a field dominated by men in her day.

The flame of my life burns low
Under the cluttered days,
Like a fire of leaves.
But always a little blue, sweet-smelling smoke
Goes up to God.
-“Blue Smoke”
