The Mating Season
The copse was luminous and inviting.
Balmy winds shifted and the leaves swirled in tuneful coils.
He crushed the vivid ambers and yellows with grimy boots;
Feet scuffing the supple earth with each enthralled step.
She inhaled a surging gust
and spread her arms in temptation.
Her warm breeze thrust him in
and he clung to her, obsessed.
Undeniably beautiful was she, that he didn't comprehend
the brambles that curled around her legs
and the twigs that rose in the deep red of her verdant hair.
Her lips were soft and her touch bewitching,
like the undisturbed soil next to a water's edge.
That's where he laid her down
and took all that could be given.
Through slumber he was not aware what soon would be returned.
Damp mists and darkness engulfed the quieted creek;
the ambers had drained and washed away the essence of the marsh.

the breathing of a heavy beast whose power

Over the years I've accumulated quite an eclectic collection of my own artwork. I move from one medium to another, sampling this, playing with that, coming back to favorites or incorporating one technique into another. For me, the challenge of a new form of expression trumps the struggle to master only one or two. Sometimes pieces just pop up and surprise me. The Qaddafi portrait is one of those. As soon as I saw the photo on the BBC website, I felt I needed to draw that face. His stance and expression were so iconic; they seemed to capture the quirky arrogance of this strange, ruthless man. So here he is, along with collage notecards, nature photographs and all manner of other manipulation of the visual world. Next? I've got a series of MS Paint pics, as well as pieces from other digital art programs.

Always something new...


Dragonmum's Profile Picture
Leslye Sinn aka Dragonmum
Artist | Hobbyist | Varied
United States
I've been an artist all my life (over half a century... ¯(ツ)/¯ ), along with my scientific/medical careers. I work in physical & digital media, ranging from Medieval illumination & colored pencil paintings, jewelry & collage to photography & altered images through fabric/fiber arts and digital paintings & cartoons. It's hard to distill 50+ years of eclectic artistic, literary and musical tastes into a few slots, so my interests are just a snapshot of how I feel today! I hope you enjoy my expressions of my vision - I welcome all non-hateful comments.

~mossyfrog is featured prominately in my favs because he's a wonderful photographer, but also my kid...

I'm Dragonmum on many sites, DragonmumLes on Vine and AGenderLes on Disqus.
