Introducing ‘Indigo’ …
She is creative and likes to demonstrate a very flamboyant presence. Her intuition and perception are in keeping with her practice of fairness, integrity, and devotion to helping others. She can perhaps, at times, be a little direct with her self-mastery of profound insights and understandings from her life-long journey by using her inherited wisdom and authority to always be a defender and protector of the righteous ‘til the end. Indigo’s presence is one to be respected and valued with priceless admiration. Enjoy the lookbook!

|I like to use chalk for my initial drawing
it’s easier to erase if I don’t like something
|Once I’m happy with the lines I then ink them in black and erase the chalk|

tree branch and upper body
|adding first layers of color to lower feathers|
|added a second layer of color to the
tree branch and the first layer to her
|starting on the first layers of details or so I thought…..
At this point, she and I had a difference of opinion, we went back and forth for almost 2 weeks on details, repaints and nothing was working to either of our likings….so I just finally let her set in the studio for several weeks which turned into over a month. When it came time to have another conversation it was decided to have yet another repaint which ultimately I have to say was the right choice …..we worked it out and she was finally complete. She was happy and so was I, it was a long road of trial and error, emotional discomfort, and frustration.

Linde Marie’s Steakhouse on the Square
In Cave Spring, Ga. until she is adopted by a new family giving her a forever home.
This piece took over 3 months She is a 24×48 mixed media piece on underlayment wood. I used acrylic, Prismacolor colored pencils, gelatos, ink, wite-out pen, and 3 coats of protective spray.
In the end, perhaps Indigo’s story is somewhat a reflection of my own. Another reminder of self-intuition and practice of fairness, integrity, and devotion to helping others and to always be a defender and protector of the righteous ‘til the end.
