Just another Bird……


Susie- The Surfer Chic…..She just thinks she’s a surfer. A decent surf really doesn’t come up unless there’s a hurricane pending. Where she really wants to try to stay on the board is in Hawaii or California!! Now they have surf!

Just another bird…..for my fix!! Ha! I must be missing the water, or it could be because it’s starting to feel like Summer here, with our 2 days in a row of 80+ weather!! My kind of season!! So, to celebrate the wonderful weather. I give you, Susie!

A couple things I like in this…..the sandcastle turned out better than anticipated. The watercolor pencils helped here. There’s no way this would’ve looked decent with markers (or at least the markers in my stash).

I am ok with the hair…..not super pleased! I thought a wet look would be good….What I got was that dried-out wet-look that’ll you’ll get when you’ve been out of the water for 20 minutes and the sun dries your hair in those crunchy strands!

The surfboard inspiration came from this image. Love all the surfboards in a row there….may have to revisit with my own little surfboard series. Ha!


Now…this is why Photoshop is so cool! I was able to put some decent clouds in this picture in a minute! So, truthfully, which image do you like more? The one with the clouds or the one without? Be honest….

IMHO…….Art + Photoshop…….The best of both worlds! But….Since, I’m still learning to draw, I refuse to Photoshop unless I’m “enhancing”!

I like the blue skies and cloud variation. Thus I like the second picture. It's very cute Eden, thanks for sharing.

I think the blue sky and the clouds look great. Your birds are so much fun. Susie is quite the sexy gal in her striped bikini!!

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!
