Inktober 2017 #2

I did it! I completed the entire month, no slip ups. I have 31 sketches completed for the month of October and what a challenge it was! Some days I couldn’t start my sketch until late at night and I would end up falling asleep while sketching! I got it done though. I am very […]

Inktober 2017 #1 

I’ve been obsessed with “IT” since the new movie came out. The original was always one of my favorites so I was ecstatic when I heard they were doing a remake. It was fantastic! I bought the book and started reading it yesterday. Wow…just wow. It just keeps getting creepier!  I’m excited to finally begin […]

Totem Animal: Cicada

I took a small break from ZIA’s and did a realistic sketch of my latest inspiration, the cicada. I have been seeing an abundance of them this year and learning so much about them. They are oddly beautiful. Like a, “Your so ugly, your cute” kind of thing. Their colors are so vibrant with an […]

Giraffes & Waffles?

Time keeps on tickin’, tickin’, tickin’ into the future! It sure is flying by and I can’t seem to find the time to get everything done! I started a new job doing landscaping so I’ve been spending a lot of time in the sunshine! …..I wasn’t able to draw much this week but I did […]

Tanglepedia

I was able to take a trip to the art shop yesterday and picked up a little sketch book and a pen cloth to keep my zentangles supplies in.  In my newest bible, The Joy of Zentangle, there is a lot of tangles to learn. The authors of the book suggest to have a key […]

Free Spirit WIP -VI-

With the recent passing of Sasha, it is rewarding to be able to help someone else that feels the same sting. I hope I […]

Every Now and Zen

I am having so much fun with zentangle inspired artwork! I want to do it all the time now. I have no worries when I’m sketching…no expectations…no strife! This is a fantastic style to play around with. I have been studying official tangles online and incorporating them in my sketchbook. I can only find about […]

Entangled with Zentangle 

Do you ever feel like you’ve barely solved one problem only to be immediately  bombarded with another? You’ve just recovered emotionally from one hardship just before another one sucker-punches you in the gut. I’ve been incredibly overwhelmed lately in just about every aspect of my life. I’m trying to keep a cool head and go […]

Dusty Drawings

I have quite a few pieces that I have started in the past and for some reason or another they have been left unfinished. I’m quite fond of all of them. It’s not that I didn’t want to finish them. They were just pushed to the back burner and forgotten about. I figured if I […]

Canine Crone

Today is our beautiful Sasha’s 14th birthday! It’s hard to believe she has been with us for so many years. She has been a wonderful member of the family. She is very caring and kind, especially to children and young critters. We always refer to her as our son’s nanny.  Sasha is a white German […]
