I probably should start this post with a WARNING Sign, because opinions will be expressed. But it’s my blog and it’s just my opinion. One opinion among billions!
But before I get ahead of myself, I’ll show you my usual step-by-step drawing process.
Just three young birds doing their thing. But I think the baseball player is trying to get a game up.
Brought in those wonderful watercolor pencils for the green wall, the blue sky seen through the window and the blonde girl.
Turn me off… Think for yourself. Just the facts m’am – just the facts. These people aren’t real, the lives you see here are an illusion. Go do something…Anything….read, write, draw, dance, sing or play. Your options are limitless. Don’t succumb to the mistrust, envy and greed that this breeds. And often it all starts with the commercials!
There I said it! Now you know my opinion about TV. Don’t get me wrong, I watch TV, and we’ve got 4-5 of them in our house. And I thank my lucky stars that I stopped being glued-to-the-tube at an early age, for reasons I won’t go into here. And it’s pretty rare that I’ll sit down and watch a show alone. Just my way…. just my way. I have to confess, I’m never the first person to know what’s going on in the news, and I rarely remember the names of some of the new stars. I can’t recognize a mature face that started out as a child actor. I’m a sucker and completely gullible when I watch TV. I believe so much of what I see. So, for me….I’ve got to prevent the drama from creeping into my life from the tube. I don’t much care for any Soap Operas, American Idol, or Dancing with the Stars. But if there’s a mystery on, or a lifetime mini-series….I’ve been known to take a peek. Usually I’m not in control of the remote, and I’ve fallen in love with the “go back” DVR button when I am. Wouldn’t it be cool if there was a “go back” button in real life?

- 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!
