Ballerinas

This evening I painted a ballerina in watercolours, and I remembered the ones I had painted last year.

Grey ballerina I painted today in watercolour and pencil (although WordPress have cropped it!)

Marbles

Glass spheres, all colours, wrapped 
within our dirty-nailed fingers,
50p a bag if mum is feeling generous. 

The chill on hand is biting frost, Arctic,
smooth as an infant’s tongue suckling on
its mother’s milky breast. 

We crouch, striking, poised, 
lured by potential in the weathered, grey,
metal drainscapes, bumpy and foot-scuffed.

With dirt on our curled fists, we send 
the marbles hurtling into holes, 
sliding into victory, these treasured balls

taking hits from bravado and
not wanting the shame of being the loser,
nursing the loose cannon.

Creatures

I have been writing a lot lately, due to my masters degree, but as it is now the Christmas holidays, I have a little more time to relax, so my paints came out!

Here are some A4 pen and watercolour paintings. I can make prints of these, A4, for £15 each plus p&p. See my shop www.sarahdruryart.com for prints and original art.
