Eloquent Voyage

Eloquent Voyage by Karen Gadient, 2017

Eloquent Voyage. Gouache and digital mixed media.

I was a first-time participant in Inktober last month. I barely managed to keep up, but it was fun. You can see my images on Twitter: @keyrover.

Note: I’m not going to be doing an art marathon this November. However, you can see the artwork from the previous four years under the tag KarPaiTwenMo or by clicking here. I’m really hoping to return to it next year.

Alas, I’m skipping NaNoWriMo this year too. Are you participating this year? Whether you’re doing a marathon or not―have a happy November!

Let your soul stand cool and composed before a million universes.

Well, it’s the final post for November. Hope you’ve enjoyed it!

Things are getting busy here with work design stuff so I might be doing less painting-for-the-blog in December, but we’ll see what happens. It’s been a heckuva November, hasn’t it? However you spent your month, I hope it was a creative success and that you have a relaxing December. Cheers!

The number of their hours;
And clouds their storms discharge
Upon the airy towers.
