I am not a Klingon. I did not marry a Klingon, but my sister did. Over the rIntaH DIS (past year) Kur’Den and his be’nal (wife) ‘u’ leng (traveled the universe) looking for qaD (challenges). Upon their visits to jISop Daq ‘ej leS yoS (places to eat and areas of rest) they ta mIllogh (recorded pictures) of belmoH poch (pleasant plants) and chaH Daqvo’ targhHom (transmitted them back to me).
Here are a few of the belmoH poch:
I took the flower pictures and Kur’Den’s official photo and made him a plaque. Below is Kur’Den, Tuq BelmoH Yotlh (Clan Pleasant Pastures)!
No, he will not take his Batleth to my mong (neck). Kur’Den has received many unique and interesting gifts from me that he batlh bey’ (displays with honor).
Yes, he did send me a human version of the sign.
Here is my latest drawing on four tiles. Almost from the very from the first curve that went down on the paper, I was saying to myself “Nope! I don’t like that.” I few more curves and a little color, still “I don’t like that.” But, I decided instead of trashing the tiles I would complete the drawing and put the tiles away to never to be seen again.
Somewhere towards the end, either when the green leaves were being drawn or the blue background was being added, my opinion of the drawing changed to “Okay, now that really look cool.”
I was reading Kathryn Costa’s book “The Mandala Guidebook. It challenged the readers to create 100 Mandalas in 100 Days. My first ten mandalas for this challenge are posted on the 100 Mandala Challenge page. I am on day 13 and I am seven ahead. That will come in handy when I start my long drive to the south. Below are drawings 011 through 020.

My goal is to draw something everyday on a 3 1/2″ tile. The something does not necessarily has to be good, just something so I am putting pen to paper everyday. Which is difficult when you are traveling. I have found that drawing and breakfast at Chick-fil-a is a great way to start your day. Here are some of the drawing that were created at a Chick-fil-a between July 6 and July 25 in South Louisiana. I can’t tell you which location, because there were four locations that were convenient to my daily activities.

Why Chick-fil-a verse the other options? First, I don’t drink coffee or tea, so no coffee house. Second, the service is good, the food is decent, and the restrooms are clean. Third, some of their customers have the best conversations.
During my travels, I left three of my drawing safe in South Louisiana. Here are the missing three.

The first two drawing was an experiment with fine point colored markers.

August is supposed to be the hottest month of the year. If that is true, then stay under the A/C and draw.
Here are the first six daily drawing for August.

Baton Rouge has made a lot of improvement to their Botanical Garden since my last trip. I will need to make another trip for better pictures.
None of my trips turn out how I expect.
Mom likes to grow flowers. Dad’s likes to grow fruit trees.
Happy Mother’s Day to all the Moms!
