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.
