Wacky Wednesday


It all started because I dared to attempt two portrait color-sketches at the same time.


And my “real job” has been crazy.  New instruments, new technology, new codes!  Oh-MY!

My focus ran away and hid.  She was nowhere to be found.  It was time to coax her out with some color! Some fun!  Some light-heartedness! 

Since I wanted to do something easy I brought out my watercolor pencils.  I like the way the colors turned out.  For a few years now when we go to take our family picture at the end of our vacations….we do a totally goofy pose to counter the more stylish one, as seen above.

Some of us have more fun than others!  Probably because the leap between normal and crazy isn’t as far for them.

It was nice that my dear dog got in the picture as well.  We’re usually doing many re-takes cuz she likes to wander off.

Now, I’ve never had any one head-over-heels…..rather…. heels-over-head in these wacky shots!  I like it!!

Here’s to a Wacky Wednesday everyone!  May you allow yourself some time to goof off!

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!
