Sunday Sketches and...

Okay - I finally sat outside and sketched then did quick color!  Just the simple watercolors that I give my grandkids...just sketch I tell myself and have never really been able to be comfortable with it.  It is just a journal page, its practice, its not anything but free flowing art....
yay, I did it!!!  It was weird.  I look at this sign everyday at work.  Playmakers is a running store, it is where I get my shoes and help with running form/injuries.  The staff there is great and over the years I have learned alot there.  The lady on the shopping cart is a landmake here in the E. Lansing area.  This location used to be a grocery store and everyone knows the shopping cart lady.  It was nice that years ago when the grocery store left - no one took down the sign!  So even though you are shopping for running gear here - you look for the lady in heels!!!!

I finished my #4 Cotton Candy Girl - she was supposed to be a rainbow girl and I had intended on doing a rainbow of blue's for background but, oh well, somehow I went in another direction.  She is done though - a practice mermaid for another project and I like it!  Natasha won't mind that I'm off track.  Now onto lesson 5 and the 2 BONUS lessons she shared!

and...for Lisa Wright...here is why I am always behind and in choas!!!  Hope this makes your mess look organized!


Please if you have a minute click on the sidebar to vote for my friend Joy's quilt!  unless, of course, you already have a friend entered.  She made it through round 1 - 148 entries and 15 chosen to move on.  They were given 3 weeks to create a piece involving an amish star...amazing!

I was going to say how hard it is for me to relax and be loose with color and art (well, I actually did say it, so...)

But then I saw you are in East Lansing!!! I went to MSU (long ago) and love love love E. Lansing. Miss it every day.

Fun to see your space where you create art!

I am very concerned for the woman with the shopping cart. Where does she go from there? How did she get there? Will she fall far? Is Superman going to fly down to rescue her? You certainly gave me a story to think about didn't you.
That is powerful art!!!
