This drawing was done earlier but not posted and since I got home late tonight and had family here, I didn't have time to do anything new. The family included Mom and she brought me soup and pie. I just added had sandwiches and we had a wonderful meal. Love is good.

One of the things I loved about living at the beach all those many years, was being able to sit on the beach and relax when things in life got stressful.

Have a blessed day.

This little contour line drawing was done at Chili's while I waited for my girl cousins to come and celebrate one of their birthdays. Had a great time and a tiny piece of art to show for my time!

I have so many online friends that create everyday. I don't know how they do it, but I am always please to see what they have done when I finally sit down at the end of my day. I know part of that is just discipline and that seems to be one of the places I am lacking. I am going to work on that! And in multiple areas!

I felt I caught the feeling of the flower if not the detail. I gave myself an "atta-girl" for at least doing something!
