Strange Magic: Work in Progress

Yes, that’s right, the drawing now has an official name. “Strange Magic” after the Electric Light Orchestra (ELO) song of the same name, which I came upon by “accident” yesterday. It was a discovery because, although I’ve heard the song many times before, I never listened very closely to the words. Here are some of the gorgeous, gorgeous lyrics:

You're sailing softly through the sun
in a broken stone age dawn.
You fly so high.


You're walking meadows in my mind,
making waves across my time,
oh no, oh no.


It's magic, it's magic, it's magic.

[from "Strange Magic" by Electric Light Orchestra]

And, btw, the actual subject matter – especially the flowers – was inspired more by the animated video for another ELO song, Mr. Blue Sky, my personal fave of their songs for years and years.

I’ll put the drawing progression in a slide show (oldest to newest) today:

🌼 Latest personal discovery: I’m a dreamer and that’s a good thing after all. 🌼

Blessings to all today.
