I’m about to go play with some markers. But I remembered that before I did that, I needed to write my blog. Since I had to grab my sketchbook, I thought I’d share an image I have planted for a painting someday. It’s the picture above. Well, I’m off now to play with markers. I’ll … Continue reading Sketchbook
I finished two more ACEO's today. Which is good because I have to replace ACEO's which sold. I've been watching quite a few paintings and drawing tutorials lately. Drawing is really something else I need to start doing every day. My art teacher, the woman who changed my life, said that drawing for 15 minutes … Continue reading Adding more daily tasks
I got up and wrote some this morning, but then we needed to go to town for some shopping. That took more time than expected. Since then, I've been working on my homework assignment for class this week. I was just able to finish the videos last night, so I feel like I've been up … Continue reading Working on homework
Rained a lot today. Thunderstorms weren't as dramatic as I initially thought they might be. Just rain. Even the occasional thunder we heard didn't scare Merlin away, though Bella hunkered down and Coville did have some nervousness (which isn't usual for him, and since it was at the beginning of the storm we actually thought … Continue reading Wash, rinse, repeat

Among a course of other things going on in my life, I was returning to attending writers conferences which I hadn't been able to do while I was going … Continue reading Okay, wow!
Happy, bright morning to you all. I'm going to try to keep it short this morning, since yesterday was very cathartic for me. I've been working on my mindset this week and that was one of the repetitive thoughts going around in my head I really needed to flip to work for me, not against … Continue reading Better day – better today
I recently signed up for a lifetime subscription on a course package offered by Dean Wesley Smith on Teachable. Sometimes I just need reminders on my writing and I love the way Dean phrases things. He's blunt and honest. Don't expect warm fuzzies. I like that. It's an eye-to-eye level approach and I know it … Continue reading A Wise Friend
The courage to start and the willingness to try. How can those two elements expand your life?
So I thought I was going to have a book cover reveal this week. Yep, that's not happening, Life has blown this week out of the water. I'm counting myself fortunate enough to be doing this post, thought it'll probably be short unless I find myself with something suddenly to say or rattling on like … Continue reading Phoenix nebula
