"Sunset Fog"

@ Leigh Viner 2011


Catching a cold is never fun, but have to admit, I am not the one that feels better sitting still either trying to cure the darn bug.. I have said it a million times, I am antsy and to get me to just sit still is a difficult task. Proud Gemini here!

I can sit do not get me wrong here just (not) still. I will have a book/magazine in hand, movies and the ipad out, taking notes, learning french, sketching, checking my e-mail. You get the picture, oh and usually all at the same time.. (lifelong multitasked individual) but on that note, the one such thing to put me in a meditative mood and away from that multitasking of my brain and the fact that I do not feel well always is drawing.

I came across the photography of Marc Yankus last night and immediately felt inspired to create from one of his blurry textured photos. They are memorizing, soft and with the blur pull a long focus of the eye to continue to look deeper in the photograph to find its shape.
Hope you enjoy them as much as I do and I am sure this will not be the only time I create a piece from Marc.

What are some of your ways of feeling better when under the weather?
