In my Quantum Dreaming course I have found Cobra is an ally of mine – and when I first met her she scared me witless. She’s been showing up in subsequent drum journeys, a couple of weeks ago she showed up in my Mystical Library, where I went to retrieve the story I most needed in my life at this moment. Among other things I was told to draw. A minimum of 30 minutes each day. Other creative outlets might present themselves, but it was imperative that I draw each day. I have to confess, there were days that ended up being too busy, but on average I have been drawing much more than 1/2 hour daily. Mostly I have been drawing as much as my right shoulder would let me do (it was frozen and tried to kill me this winter, I’m still on the mend), and it has been a joy to realise I have been steadily improving. When I finished this drawing I was colouring non stop for two hours, in the beginning I could only do 10-15 minutes before my shoulder ached. Woot!
Now I am finished with my first Cobra-induced drawing, I just had one warmup before I went for it. After I started colouring I realised I didn’t have a background planned, and decided that I was OK with that. It’s my first proper drawing in a very long time, and I am actually quite happy with how it turned out. The next one will get a background – because there has to be something behind all those holes in the wall, right?
