Another “Poldark” watercolor sketch—definitely used more water than my paper could handle on this one...

John Butler
_
This final Inktober painting is a special one to me. Over the last year, I’ve listened to John Butler for hours and hours on YouTube. John is a Christian mystic who speaks in the softest, most wonderfully calming voice of the meaningfulness of prayer and meditation and stillness. Though I don’t agree with everything he says, I always find wisdom and comfort and hope when I listen to him.
.
Creating this painting was a special experience, as I tuned into his interviews for about three hours of the process. John spoke of how meditation is like an airplane that takes us above the clouds of thought, of how it is also sometimes as simple as sitting quietly and feeling your feet on the still ground, of how much peace deep stillness can bring. So this is my thank you to him.
.
If you swipe to the next frame, there’s a short video with a clip of John talking. And for more of him, check out the Spiritual Unfoldment channel on YouTube.

Skull Study

An exercise in drawing when I reeeeeeeeeeally didn’t want to. And a good reminder that, even when I’m not feelin’ it, I can learn something and have fun. 💀 🖤

Magpie Map
_
This map is for the extremely delightful @chasingmagpies , who inspired it with the following poem:
_
Oh, weary cartographer 
you’ve drawn the shape 
of things so many times;
checklists to the familiar
and where you’ve always
been. Have you
forgotten the purpose 
of adventure, the
lovely ways of
discovering each
contour, of the fun
in creating legends
to make sense of
whatever this may
or may not be?
There are places
to be found in
ways you cannot 
navigate with your
eyes focused on arbitrary 
boundaries. Take my
hand, let’s trace this
dialect to its origin.
Pinpoint and label 
only after the scent of
this is home for us.
We’ll send paper planes
to scout ahead;
round corners and
dips where fingertips
get lost in the beauty
of it all, feel my words
like Braille whispers
road signs to
something worth 
exploring, a destination 
we can’t quite discern 
from this distance,
I’m in no hurry to
see if we are there
yet, magnificent 
mapmaker. It’s 
OK being lost
every now
and again.
