"OM Soup with Pomegranates" is a 4"h x 6"w drawing, made with ink and colored pencil, on white card stock paper. I finished drawing it on May 1, 2012, after starting it on April 27, 2012.

This is an original, one of a kind drawing, not a print.

This piece was inspired by an ancient Italian bowl my daughter Gretchen showed me at her Cleveland Museum of Art, of a wonderful octopus and some fish. I first saw it with her on March 31, while Eva was in an art class there. Then I saw it again with her on April 27, when we YaYas went to see the Rembrandt in America show there.

I didn't look at a picture of the bowl when I drew this piece, so it's very different, but the octopus looks a little familiar! I gave it a big bowl of pomegranates and two glasses of ? Pomegranate Wine! for me and Gretchen, who's probably the woman looking into the drawing. She wants that wine! So do I.

You can see I again went nuts putting the word OM everywhere, after I wrote some affirmations of love, peace, and joy - thoughts for happy living - all over the drawing.

I've been painting since I was little, and my career has been about large story pieces with writing all over the narrative imagery. I've focused a lot on great big whole cloth sewn paintings, but for Etsy, I'm emphasizing my small paintings on canvas and canvas board, and my little drawings. I have a LOT of ideas and hope to keep putting up new pieces every week. You can see my really large pieces in my gallery at www.turtlemoon.com, and a lot of my work at my Facebook page, www.facebook.com/susanshie.

Thanks! - Lucky, Susan Shie
