Organic Time – Day 22 Inktober 2017

“How long does it take to make Sourdough?” someone asked our teacher. “Depends!” Sas replied. The notion of organic time entered my head!

Sas explained that a timer approach to making sourdough bread wouldn’t work. The proportions, type and quality of starter, water and flour are variables. One has to get to know and develop a feeling for the process from start to finish.

We were very happy with the results of our first attempt – like bread tasted when we were children – long ago!

Paint Storm – Day 21 Inktober 2017

On day 21 we experienced an amazing performance by Phil Doncon – Paint Storm.  Through energetic high speed painting, acrobatics and readings, Phil engaged us and many others, including young children, for well over an hour.  The Paint Storm told us the story of God’s Messenger Baha’ u’ llah – imprisonment, his revelation and his unifying vision of the future of the world and the nature and purpose of life.

It was impressive how Phil transformed his huge mural as the story developed.  For example, hands grasping at prison window bars became hands holding candles of light.

It was a challenge to try and capture a glimpse of his performance using the constraints of my Inktober 2017 and a style more like Phil’s.

I added an Iris, symbol of hope and strength so my sketch included flora – one of my self inflicted constraints…

Race Against Time – Day 20 Inktober 2017

Day 20 was a cheerful chore full day – racing against time doing as many tasks that needed to be done as possible.  This left our weekend available for all the events we’d chosen to attend! I was somewhat wilted by the end of the day!

Out Of Time – Day 19 Inktober 2017

We dusted off our dancing shoes on day 19 and went to our first line dance class.  We ended up dizzy, confused, out of time and out of step!

Going again though!

Clock Plate – Day 20 Inktober 2017

On day 20 I made a batch of mini muffins and wished I had some mini edible flowers to decorate them with.  Marigolds would be too big!  I also thought it’s be nice to put them on a clock plate – muffins anytime!

I’m really disappointed in how this scan in particular came out.  Time for a dedicated scanner?
