Sunday and time to sketch!!!

Just alittle bit to share and trust that everyone will visit Sophia over at Sunday Sketches...and all the great art that is shared there!

I will be off work on Wednesday and plan to check in on all the Sunday art!!!

Part of my smurfie feeling is a new addition to our household....

Meet Ollie...

He is a 12 week old goldendoodle to be our Sophie's buddy.  She is our almost 8 yr old standard poodle.  It is only day one but I think we have picked the right pup for her!!!

It feels like spring is just around the corner...

I know it's Michigan and I am getting a false since of spring...we are surely in for more snow and those dreaded ice storms of April...BUT yesterday the sun was shining and the world was bright!!!!  Filled my birdfeeders outside my kitchen window and watched my feathered friends gather!!!!  It just felt and sounded like spring!!!!

with alittle help from my friends!!!

So happy valentine's day...I have the day off and am just enjoying my morning.  Yesterday I celebrated my 55th birthday!!!  I made cupcakes, as I do every year for all the patients at work, they love it and I received all kinds of hugs and good wishes.  Then came home to a couple friends just popping in with wishes and a card, a nice surprise.  Mark's daughter returned from a 3 week clinical in California with her cows to pick up her dog - yes!!! and the 3 of us went out for a burger and beer.  Nice and quiet just how I like it these days.  Received calls from all the kids and g-kids, as well as, many facebook happy's!!!!  So, as I relax today and just soak up the calm I popped over to
then had to sit down with a book I received from a friend for Christmas: 642 things to draw by Chronicle Books...and just doodled the spirit of today!!!  the trigger phrase is: a string of DNA, I think I've got it!!!

Enjoy your day with your loved at stranger's, they may be alone!!!
cheers, dana

resurrecting Sinderella...

Adding this 2-16-2012 - for the Fly Tribe "I love art because" blog party!  I really feel that my resurrecting Sinderella post is that I love art and need art!!!  click on the sidebar to visit all the participating artists!!!
As I continue to focus on important family matters I realize art is my outlet.  I am a better thinker and helper when I have a way to release tension and separate myself from daily reality.  Art is therapy.  So, with that said, not a huge commitment but at least once a week I shall return to arting and blogging!!!!  I hope that you will rejoin me as I continue this journey!!!!

Obviously on sheet music; watercolor crayons, acrylics and graphite pencil.
