I took a friend on many errands today which left me sitting in the car in various parking lots. I usually take a book and a sketch pad. Today I decided I needed to sketch even if I didn't have a single idea in my head. My head is all too often quite empty.

Since I had no idea I just start scribbling swirling lines hoping something would appear. Sort of like looking at clouds and trying to see images. Eureka, they did and as is most often true for me they were of beautiful women.

The bottom image with the four little roughs was the start, then after moving to a different location and starting again I found myself thinking of some of the "tweets" I had seen earlier today. All these came from a group of very talented women on Twitter who have created a world called, "momoparty" So as I scribbled and an image started to appear I had in my head the idea of a beautiful woman, actually a few of them, in the woods on a spring day dancing and singing. From there it sort of got easy as soon as I saw the head position appear I took  it from there. She is dancing and tossing the drape or whatever you call that in a gentle breeze with music and singing around her.

This I think should be a painting. Now, I just have to make it real as to anatomy and such so I can paint it. I guess this is how most good things start and grow.
