One Year older and not a bit smarter

Well yesterday was the last of birthdays that this girl
will be having.  I still feel like I am 30, dont look
like it but still feel like it.  When my mother was 85
she said "I still feel like that young girl I used to be,
I dont know where the years went".  

It seems to me that they fly by and you have not
accomplished anything or not all you set out to do.

This is a collage I did a while back I did a little
series of these.  I had fun doing them imagining
them in a little persons room.  And thats
where they went, I gave them to my Neice who
have two little girls.

Well today its shopping, lunch with the shopper,
and then home to work on my canvas, I am
making some good progress.

Talk to you later

Just call me Shifty Eyed Pete

my rabbit looks a bit shifty eyed
This is an oldie but goodie, I think I did it last year.
Had a good day yesterday, went to lunch with a friend and
stayed on points, and enjoyed it.  Today
I am feeling a little under the weather, I think
I have a touch of the flu, so am laying low
today, I had to go to WW today and
lost 2 pounds but that is as far as I am
going.  Am having a big family gathering
on Thursday, Turkey and all the works, so I better get better, or
the hubster will have to don the apron, and thats
not a pretty sight

Retail therapy is it the cure


I have posted a picture from my sketchbook.  I have been
drawing alot of cityscapes in my sketchbook .  I need to
get better at them, I dont want them to look like a
kid drew them.  

I have been feeling down in the dumps lately with my art
and with me.  So I took myself off yesterday to get
a haircut, and feel a little better.  Today I am
off to lunch with my friend and a little retail
therapy thrown in on the side.  Some new
art supplies might be in the works.  Some new
skinny jeans, and new shirt, and I might
be a whole new woman.

Oh spring where art thou


Can you believe its March already the time is flying by this month.  I dont think I accomplished to much in February, but
I did see a great movie, called LION, so good.
I got a really good art book by Jodi Ohl.  The
book is called "abstracts in Acrylic and ink.
Now I got this from the library, but plan on buying it.
I have alot of art books that are just crap.  So now
I get them first from the library to see if I like them.
Then if I do really really like them, I buy them.

Working on some art, mostly just sketching, and trying
different paint techniques so not much to show.

Today we are having a snow storm, the snow
was just about melted but mother nature decided
to throw in a snow storm for fun.  Oh well
spring is just around the corner.
