Another surreal pen and ink drawing.  This night owl isn’t a party animal.  He is the bringer of the night.  He carries it under his wing.  But be carful–he may sell you the moon.

Bi-polar disorder is a bear to suffer through.  Being a bipolar bear may not be much better.  But this one seems to be barring up well.

I have changed him up a little digitally:

After the Ice Storm, Salem Oregon, Painting by Jenny Armitage

The Standing and the Fallen (16 x 23 watercolor) Sold

This Spring Salem, Oregon had back to back ice storms leading to many downed trees and branches.  While I mourn many of the trees lost, nature’s thinning does have it’s compensations.  One of those is that woods around our house, are an entirely new place, while still remaining beautiful.  This lit up hillside was dark, tangled,  and mossy just months ago.  Now it is bright and open.
