Art School?

*sometimes all i want to do is color, yeah, like ALL DAY
* primary colors in use once again
*still looking for an On-line mixed media class
*trying to incorporate journaling into my "coloring"
*for now i have to make-up my own "art school" as i go
*the hard thing is to decide about the homework
*i so much want to go out there and buy more pens/markers
*i'm glad i found this watercolor moleskine, it keeps the colors rich
*i'm getting really flighty, just can't decide what to do next but i know for sure i don't want to spend my evenings watching tv.
*now, netflix is a different matter, but i haven't joined yet
* vacations are good
* work is good
*doing things you'd rather not is good
* expressing yourself is good
*connecting to friends is good
*reading and listening to people that reinforce your values is good
*working on my character issues is good
* exercising is good
*eating less crap is good
*allowing occasional chocolate bites is even sweeter


What things are you trying to learn or do? Can you find the time? The Energy? The solution?

Such a fun way to describe how you are feeling, fun links too! I'm learning to watercolor abstracts and exploring using a Rapidograph with various inks. That will keep me busy for awhile... but then again...

About Me

My Photo
By day...I work in the Healthcare field, where every .. i.. has to be dotted and every ..t.. has to be crossed. This blog is the place where I can let myself go and have some fun. I am on a journey. A journey I started a long time ago, but it has been a bit sidetracked with Navy Wife relocations and raising kids. I finally see the light at the end of the tunnel and I have got some time for me. No, I will not be one of those moms walking around the house with Empty Nest Syndrome, I have got way too much to do, to learn, to create. Sure, once the kids are gone I will miss them....but hey, there is always the phone, the email, the texting and the Plane tickets! I love my life and my family and It is fun moving into this new stage. I am into Digital Scrapbooking, photography, journaling, Art Journaling and Drawing. I am a do-it-yourselfer and I am trying to teach myself to draw. I am finding that it takes a lot of patience, lots of practice and a good eraser!
