Caffeine By Kira A. Moore

One thing I am thankful for is, as this year has progressed, I am regaining my artistic inclinations. Admittedly, it was a motivational speech which which gave me a new way to view the art I create, and in doing so opened new channels to explore. Another thing which has changed is I am now teaching my middle son about art and the creation process which in turn is teaching me things as well. I think it has been said in teaching someone, the teacher learns as much as the student.

Here is the latest piece I have finished, titled “Caffeine”. It is coffee and graphite on backing board.

Caffeine

 

I did a wash using old coffee, let it dry, then did a second wash. I followed this with an scrub of used coffee grounds. Last I drew the image using graphite pencil. There are some blemishes in the drawing which I decided to leave as they are. I could have made every line and curve perfect, but I think the imperfections add a character to the piece it would have otherwise lacked.

3D Art

I have long enjoyed the optical illusions created by 3D drawing and other pieces of paper art.  Here are a few of my favorites.

There are many, many more which you can find by searching for “3D Drawings” or search by artist.

New Site…

Umm..

As I just realized, I made a silly mistake back when I first created this blog.

Simply put, I misspelled the web address, using two R’s instead of two O’s in Morre… er, make that Moore.

This caused WordPress to say that my blog didn’t exist. You could get here through the error page but it was confusing, so I now made a new blog with the same name but the correct web address: kiramoorescloset.wordpress.com

I am going to transfer all my content over to the new site, but it’s going to take a little time.

I will double post until I get everything moved and then I will take this one off line.

Thank you for your understanding and please feel free to tease me for this!

Thank you all,

Kira

Today I find myself overwhelmed by the kindness of so many people  I wish we could meet one day just so I could thank each and every one of you personally for taking the time to visit my blog, to say nothing of following me. To each and every one of you, please accept my heartfelt “Thank You!”

I have said before that when I first started writing this blog I really didn’t expect anyone to notice, let alone take an interest in anything i had to say. After all, there are millions of people out there with blogs and many of them are much better writers than I will ever be. Who would notice one more, written my a girl they didn’t know, who was just looking for a place to put all her confused, mixed up and overly emotional thoughts?

That anyone has taken notice has been a pleasant surprise to say the least.

To this day I am not sure what, if anything, I have written anyone has found of interest, but regardless, I want to thank everyone who is reading this. You have given me my voice and a chance to speak and I am forever grateful.

I will continue to post, continue to work through this thing I call life and to share my thoughts, hope and fears. I will con tune to write poetry and hopefully some short stories. Maybe, just maybe, I will have some small impact on this great big world of ours.

Again, a great big Thank You! to one and all, I appreciate you taking the time to follow me and I will do my best to write something worth reading.

Something Lighter

Considering the heavy duty posts over the past 24, I thought I should look to something a bit lighter. What better I thought than music. Something I haven’t really talked about in a while.

So here I present the playlist that I often have going in the background when I’m working on poetry, or when I am trying to frustrate myself trying to get my story idea off the ground where it has been laying in a wrecked heap for more than a month….

This is an hour of wonderful music that just floats in the background. As often as not I have it looped in continuous play.
