Spirit

    Taking some time to nourish my Self.



I have found that I love drawing faces again.
I want to learn and practice and keep trying.
I want to get better with drawing eyes, lips, noses.
I want to learn more about light source and shading.




    What do you do to take care of your Self? 

    Happy Monday. Have a great new week!

A Book, a Journal, Heart-Thoughts

  Quiet time on a Saturday.


I am so happy and grateful, not only when I get time to read, but when I read a book that touches me.  Have you read any novels by Ann Patchett?

Faces

I love drawing.
With the threat of a new lake effect snow,
 I came home from work at a very reasonable time...
and played in my art journal!
Happiness...






    Thanks for visiting!

My Word

    ...found me. SPIRIT.
    I love it.


    I do feel the need to nurture my true spirit,
    to be truer to myself,
    to meditate and become more in touch
    with BEing.



    I was having my doubts about a Word for 2016,
    but remained open, and there it was.  Is.  Spirit.

    It's perfect for me.  It speaks about who I am,
    who I want to become as I learn and grow,
    and whispers something so gently strong.



    I close my eyes and smile as I think it: Spirit.

    My spirit settles into Being as I meditate,
    but my spirit also yearns for something more
    that I have yet to realize.


      Happy New Year friends!
      May you have peace, love, and good health.

      love,
      k

Dear Andi, I love you





I loved making this Art Themed Cake for Andi!  She loves to draw and "color"!  Two years sure went fast...!

Love,

Sketching

...in my art journal.









I've been anticipating this downtime between Christmas and New Year's when I could fully relax and create again.

I actually have been dreaming of drawing faces...

Peace to you,

A Very Merry Christmas

There is nothing quite like having an almost-2-year-old granddaughter at Christmastime!










And cherish them I do!

Hope your holidays are amazing too!
