During my morning walks I take pictures. Then work with them until they show a connection to what is human in us.

It is not just seeing what is there, these four leaves on the sidewalk that looked like "Ducks In  A Row," it is adding my vision to what you are now seeing. here are the leaves, re-seen by Eyauuk. See a short video of the  origin of the name Eyauuk aided by my joyous granddaughters here http://www.eyauuk.com/about/eyauuk-name/

This is a start to a series about obstacles inspired by the writings of Roman Emperor Marcus Aurelius and expounded on in Ryan Holiday's book The Obstacle Is The Way. Personalizing my experience in overcoming obstacles should help understand the whole concept better.   #obstacles

I am inspired by Roman Emperor Marcus Aurelius to write about obstacles.  He wrote often, for himself. Once I get the ideas about overcoming more clear in my head I think this series will help you too.

My muse kept showing me the image of doing a fingerpainting while I was very young, so I reproduced it to understand better what my muse was getting at. I realized back then as I do know that there is beauty in the brush/hand strokes themselves. They record who we are and how we feel.

Size
While still in bed thinking about what to say about this work my mind wandered about concepts such as discussing the elements of art, meanings of color and size.

When I measure this work on screen I get 438 X 219 pixels.
With as tape measure I get 5.5 by 2.75 inches.
On, twitter I measure 502 x 248 pixels.

The point: the size changes depending on how you are viewing the work. Prints of this work will also vary depending on the size of the paper and image size selected.

For this series of work I started with pen and ink work using various pens and inks, even twigs from a tree (the twig idea came from an art school exercise at Cameron University in Lawton Oklahoma courtesy of the US Army)

Behind the scenes:
My granddaughter is practicing guitar right outside my door "Here Comes the Bride." She is reading sheet music and playing without "looking at my strings" she said. 

I popped downstairs for a glass of ice to cool my lemonade, grabbed a piece of jalapeno cheese and a Halo tangerine: breakfast.

Back to the article:
I scan the pen and ink work into my computer and convert the scan into individual vector items which I then use to make the final work. The computer is a great tool to adjust size, shape, color and line as well as work on how the final composition will look.

These series originally were restricted to 500 by 250 pixels so they could be uploaded to Twitter. It looks like the width can be around 525 pixels now, so I have been playing with this, but the width appears stable at 250.

This size shows automatically open on the Twitter timeline, so a nice shot of art to my followers.

So I close as my grand daughter listens to a piano version of Greensleeves.
