Sunday Sketches and no time...

My schedule allows little time for really creating.  I am a morning person so it is work out or create...currently on the workout path, so when can I art?  I've been taking a paper journal with me everyday now, grabbing my plain #2 pencil and making sure art is part of EVERYDAY!  I have given myself permission to just play - it is not about creating a masterpiece - it is just thinking about it and putting pencil to paper.  No real supplies just something to keep me growing.  It doesn't matter that I am not following a lesson or perfecting a technique - it is about the DOING!  So, crayons highlighters whatever is there - using it and smiling the whole time because NO PRESSURE!

My little bird of mixed whatever was on hand where I was at!  Color therapy - art therapy - call it what you want but it makes you smile!

My alter ego?????

Thanks to Alexandra for hosting Sunday Sketches!!!!  It is always fun to get up, grab a cup of coffee and explore on Sunday mornings!

cheers, dana
life is short, make sure you LIVE it

Cute little chick. Now is there a slight touch of a hangover there? The paper hat seems to say 'party' so perhaps it was just one glass too many of champagne last night. Hang on to that branch, kiddo!
I love this so much - makes me want to write one of my doggerel verses, she has so much personality!

I absolutely love your bird. He definitely made me smile. You have such a great plan for working out and continuing to create. It is not always easy to do both but you seem to be making it work.

Beautiful and happy bird!!!

That's what I want to do every day. Not done every day though,... but every time I can, i grab a piece of paper and doodle. Just to keep inspired...and sane ;) Sometimes they become big paintings.

Have an amazing day!

What the heck i just read? The primary thing is to
check with the physician in advance of making use of this supplement.
The extract of Garcinia Cambogia can be found such as capsules and products
and consulting the physician can provide you
a very clear comprehension of the belief that will it suit
you or not. This product frequently satisfies the wants
of the men and women but exceptions are always
there. So, you need to be sure you aren't normally the one which could
not use this product. Essential problem is concerning the
dosage. You should question your doctor concerning the
absorption and be unique regarding it authentic Garcinia Cambogia.

WOW.Nice read here. The important step to how this supplement gets results is that
it can be a dual action diet solution, meaning that it works as
an diet enhancing drug including a "fat burner".
This definitely suggests that it oxidizes fat skin cells with the use of anti-oxidants, and also leads to even more power for you - although only when you
know how taking authentic Garcinia Cambogia in the correct style.The majority of diet
solutions currently available are designed all over reving up
your fat burning capacity, which can be not really healthy for
many people - and this is the reason why so many people are deciding to obtain Garcinia Cambogia extract instead.
