Sketchbook Art

Sometimes I pick up an old sketchbook 
finding pencil sketches begun,  
and I breathe new life into them
then paint

there is something satisfying about finishing pieces

Wishing you a lovely spring day

Magic of Life

as he leaned against the tree
as though it was part of his body

toes outstretched 
supported by earths boulder

he reached 
for the spheres 

the colorful spheres of energy

knowing they were gifts to behold
partake in

the magic of life

Something has her attention

something has her attention
maybe a wild orchid?:

 So lovely to have flowers blooming!
This is a calypso orchid
commonly called a fairy slipper

quite similar to a lady slipper but about half the size 
and different coloring.

Dragon Kin

oh to fly
through the skies
by the wings of a friend


I have been doing my 100 day challenge. 
At least my allotted ten minutes a day
which can lead to an hour or three

Since I usually do not think a piece through in advance
this one was a bit of a challenge to breathe 
life into. 
Lots of staring at it, waiting for the next step to come to me.

100 Day Project

Hi Blog friends, 
I have decided to do:
The 100 Day Project

I wanted to challenge myself to get back into doing regular art. 
Even if it is just ten minutes a day.
I know that once I do ten minutes, there is a good chance it will last much longer. 
Ten minutes seems enticing, do-able too.

I won't post every day, or at least I doubt I will. 
This drawing is my start, next is to paint it. 
It is in a small sketch book.

There is also a poem I wrote about fairies that I want to illustrate and have for sale during this 100 days. 
Part of me telling you, is to say it out loud, to help hold myself to this challenge. 

Are you doing this challenge?
If so, what will you be doing?
Photography, cooking, writing, working out, art?

Seems like a good time, while so many of us are home. 
I hope this finds you well and wish you moments in all your days that make you smile.
