I was in need of a color fix. I spotted this drawing and pinned it months ago. Thought it looked like fun.
Used my cool compass and made a bunch of random arcs.
Played with all kinds of color-combinations. Enhanced the mandelas with my sharpie poster paints by applying dots. Lots….of….Dots.
I don’t think I’ve ever drawn so many circles in my life. Dot circles…Outlined circles…Big and Little circles. Tiny circle dots inside of small circles dots. It was a Circle Circus!
As much as I would’ve preferred to showcase my 2 favorite colors (red & green). I knew that it needed more character.
Don’t look too closely….some of the lines aren’t closed and it’s not perfectly colored in. This is where digital drawing would have it’s advantages! But it works!
And….I kind of like it!

- 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!
