Ecstasy or Z's

My best prescription for not falling asleep in class is to doodle.  So that was what I did today to fight the z's from a week of less than satisfying sleep.  In art, there are always references one is making, whether direct or indirect, intentional or inadvertent.  As I doodled this, it brought to mind the painting of St. Francis of Assisi below.

  1. well said.
    on the piano we "noodle"
    Coincidentally, I "scribbled" in my class tonight because someone's presentation was TOO boring. Too bad I threw them away. I wonder what my subconscious was.

  2. Hahaha! Noodling?! I did not know that. You have to show me how to noodle sometime.


Aww! You're leaving me a message!
