I need a vacation......

Time sure does fly when having fun....
I don't know why I didn't post last week..guess wasn't much art wise going on...but..this week a different story...returned to paint class...
Here is first sketch of my next painting..a Still life of an orchid plant...wish me luck!

Attempt made to sell cards these last 2 weeks...not very successful but had fun sitting out with the woman that runs the yard sale right in front of my house! Did get some practice in ...

Couple of my latest!
My tangling and painting always a work in progress...

A butterfly in progress
Had a lot of breakfast and lunch meetings with friends and stuff so I guess there wasn't a lot of art going on...Not going to be like that this week so more to be revealed...
Have a great week and remember keep is your God given duty!!
God bless

Officially a senior citizen !!

Yep I turned the milestone of 65 yesterday but I swear I don't feel a day over 60 LOL

God has blessed me with pretty good health except for a few allergies, occasional aches and pains and believe me I am grateful.
It also kind of puts your life in perspective....and I plan to enjoy as much as possible...
Like today. spent most of it sitting outside on back porch, listening to music, and experimenting with watercolors, pens and inks...tangles and drawing...and just generally enjoying the day.

Worked on a couple of projects and still have one WIP

Here is a glimpse of what I did today:

Did the background yesterday and tried to fill in today..Some of it works and some of it doesnt but oh well that is what experimenting is all about...
Did this for the Square one challenge of Rundl and there is a reason that tangle is in my list of difficult challenges..but it didnt come out too badly..

This was for the Diva weekly challenge which I dont usually do so early. So I may have time to do another. Beads of Courage a wonderful program!!! Read more about it on Diva's Blog.

Lastly a work in progress...
To be continued....

Not much else this week...Drawing on canvas my new still life painting project.. That will be interesting..will definitely be putting updates on as they arrive but nothing as yet.
Couple of WIP coloring projects but again nothing completed. Not doing a lot of coloring these days. Seem to be more focused on tangling and just plain old line and shape drawing. 
I am planning to be out this week with my Alphabet  and design greeting cards...will let you know how that goes..and for more info. just email me and I will tell you where and when.
Sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo that is all for this week folks..
Come back soon and see what else I will have in store...

Almost birthday...

And a whole lot going on in between....
Tuesday I had a wonderful experience doing QiChong by the river. Beautiful day nice breeze, nice calming music and exercise. We even had a squirrel join us for a bit.
Wish I had taken some pics..hopefully we will be able to do this again in the not so distant future.
It was really really lovely!

Then Happy 16th anniversary to my loving husband and friend on Friday...We spent it quietly as we knew we had a day on Saturday with family and friends.

Saturday we kinda turned Red Lobster out in Kingston...15 of us descended and took over for a bit...LOL

To celebrate my upcoming birthday. I must say Red Lobster did us very well prompt courteous service with great food!
Quick video by my Cousin Cheryl Brewington...Thank you so much!

Group after dinner
Me and Grands...

We had a blast!

And some where in this week I did work on some creating..

For the weekly diva Challenge

For the weekly Zentangle challenge

And completion of my butterfly...

And a couple of coloring pages

So it has been a fun and productive week. Wonder what holds for the next week. I will be starting a still life in paint class and am starting a daily watercolor challenge in addition to the challenges I already do. 
God is good all the time and all the time God is Good!

Thanks for checking me out...see you next time

Inktober 9-16

This is quite an exercise but I am loving every minute..of course some are better than others. Yet the fact that I am doing a drawing a day...
