Inspire Me Thursday - DNA

5 x 5 inches, Prismacolor pencils, Pigma Micron pen, Sharpie marker

"DNA" is the prompt this week at Inspire Me Thursday, and after admiring the entries that have already been posted, I thought I might pass on this one. But instead, I decided to offer up a simplified double helix and a few random doodles to represent the creative, colorful, and fun life I'm seeking to live.

Unfortunately, my favorite Pigma pen gave up the battle in the middle of this, and I had to resort to using a Sharpie, which I'm not entirely comfortable with. Hmm, my green pencils are getting a little short, too -- I may be forced to shop for some new supplies. Oh my!

Cheryl,
This is so...happy! colorful! energetic! expanding! brilliant! creative! Thank you for sharing the portrait of your DNA. Hmm...maybe..."being a Cheryl" too...I'll learn use colored pencils as well as you! You do things with colored pencils I've never seen before. So vivid and fluid...graceful movement.

I've not gotten the feel for them yet...but I'll keep practicing! Thanks for sharing your inspiring DNA with us!

I wish real dna were this pretty! :) It's like ribbons of life. There's also something about the lines in this work that feel soothing.
