This is inspired by a vision I had of a Native American holding up an 18 x 24 ” pad of artist’s paper. The kind I used in my community college illustration classes, along with an illustrator’s clipboard which is a bit larger.
Art form the sketchbook of Linda M Smith. Pencils on paper in pink moleskine sketchbook. You can buy these at Blick art stores or Barnes and Noble bookstores. They’re excellent!
Photo taken by Linda M Smith in Redding, California, at California and whatever streets. Near the Cascade Theatre. Hope I can seduce Craig Chaquico into performing there. He rocked in Miner Park in Yreka. This is truly God’s Country.
A simple illustration from the sketchbook of Linda M Smith. Pilot G2 07 black gel pen on paper. I probably took 15 minutes to do this. Wasn’t watching the clock. Having too much fun inventing naked people doing ordinary and wonderful things! I plan to draw a lot more.
I’m going to work in color as well as black and white. Black and white really means shades of gray and different line thicknesses. Usually in pencils and charcoal and/or graphite.
The above is titled “Shape In Space” from the sketchbook of Linda M Smith. Mixed media on paper, pink moleskine blank book. I love to explore geometric shapes with lines and colors.
From the sketchbook of Linda M Smith. Inspired by another female artist’s tumbled glass art. Masks have always been an important part of costtumes and rituals since the time of Inannaand Tammuz. Maybe longer. Art for me is a soul healer. And a safe sexual outlet. At least when I draw humans and spirit beings in the act of love and pleasure sometimes known as sex or love making.
bringing joy, beauty, and healing to the world through Linda's art, writing, and music!
