Portrait of a Moose
I've been trying to break out of my rigid ways of doing things, and wanting to do some art that didn't involve any planning. So two nights ago I got out some card stock, a black pen, and I doodled on the card stock. When I'd finished doodling and took a look at it, I saw a moose's head. I added the big eyeball, got out my collection of markers, and had a ball coloring it. Doing zentangles lately seems to have freed me up enough that I was able to do this. I'm quite pleased with it. I named my moose Morris, and wrote a few words in his honor. :o)
Mister Morris Moose,
after primping and preening,
posed for his portrait.
So yesterday I was at a used bookstore (The Book Shop) and found a book called Wild Lands for Wildlife: America's National Refuges. When I saw this picture of a moose I had to buy the book. Don't you think there's a fair resemblance to my Morris??
That's Ed - holding the book open for me.
