ps I used a fine Sharpie to draw the leaves and water color to paint them. This from the girl that could never write or draw anything unless it was in pencil. In case I made a mistake. Oh well, glad I out grew that one! ;)

When I look at your heavens, the creation of your fingers, the moon and stars that you have set in place- what is man that you remember him, the son of man that you take care of him? Ps 8

I always think of this child's verse when I see this picture...I know it's not Spring, but I just couldn't resist. Went through some of my old favorites today and wanted to share this one with you. Don't those bright colors make you happy? They do me! I'm a color fanatic, addict, enthusiast, and lover of all things colored! How do you feel when you get a new set of paints or markers or pencils or pastels or paper?!?! Doesn't it just thrill you to drink those colors in with your eyes? Or how about an incredible sunset or sunrise, tinted clouds, a rainbow, birds, eggs, leaves, flowers? I can't get enough, and I don't want a cure! :). Last evening, we were driving home right at magic hour and I was marveling at the low setting sun, how it's bright yellow rays slanted across the Blue Ridge Mountains and how it just lit them up to a delicious orange! Orange! Orange mountains, really. I hope you've seen a sight like this before. Pure pleasure to the eyes, mind and soul! Even the thought of it now gives me joy...
Show your colors! And truly

I've been enjoying a website, http://www.sustainablycreative.net/ by Michael Nobbs for some time now. I was searching for "Drawing Blogs" , and his site came up. Not only did I love his drawings but I was so intrigued by his words and methods of getting things done. He has little energy but keeps up his work, blog, drawings and even write books by just doing a little at a time. Check out his site!
When I was reading one of his books tonight, I thought of this little chorus that we used to sing in church years ago, Little is much...Little is much is much when God is in it, labor not for wealth or fame, there's a crown and you can win it, if you go in Jesus' name...
Hard day. Very hard day. I said I would be honest here, so there it is. Super tired. Like uber, can't even explain it, tired. Didn't get much done, read, sang one, yes one tiny little chorus. Had a nice dinner with 2 of my favorites guys and blogged this post. Nighty all.

So many words for such a sad little drink ;(
Anywho! Hope you have something to look forward to this crisp, beginning of fall season...(even if it IS a Monday!)

Is that not true about people too? Ourselves? A few "petals" have fallen off...the years have had pain or hardships, lessons learned, loved ones lost...but wisdom and beauty were growing too...
All those possibilities...all that inner beauty...let it show...

Loved this wall and thought you might too. Saw this little famous pizza place on FoodTV and got a chance to go there, Little Italy, NYC. It was as good as they said it would be!
Enjoy! Too bad you can't have a slice of pizza with it! ;)

Everything seems slow and quiet in these wee hours...Are they trying to decide if they should untangle themselves from summer's warm nest, or fully grasp fall's splendid glory?
The crickets song is even softer and less assured...Corn tassels have turned to amber, waiting for their turn with the rusty, red farm equipment, to be stored away from the coming breezes and chill...
The last rose bud peeks it's perky face up for the tiny drops of dew, glowing with her find...
Only the Morning Glories still shout, "Summer, Summer!" , with their magenta, heliotrope and lily white faces turned towards the struggling sun...They have had almost their last warm dew bath...but do not let them know...The frost will come soon enough and shock them back into their earthly hiding places, where they will wait patiently for the next spring and summer to show their vibrant faces and twist their vines up towards the rising sun.

Anyway, even though it's technically a mistake( I make a LOT of those ), I hope you still

ps. By the way, I have been painting and creating, just not showing you yet because I'm working on the major project of my new ART SPACE, ( boy, that's a lot of work!) and some BIG family news that is requiring my time and attention at the moment. Sorry to, nah... it's kinda fun, to keep you in suspense! So, we, I mean you, will see or hear soon! Also, I really can't wait to show you the finished product of my art room! It's awesome! So colorful and eclectic! You are gonna love it, almost as much as I do! :)
Shhhhh! Leave a COMMENT and we will have a quiet, little contest for one of the above...
I hope you Enjoy!

Journals, journals galore! Calendars, date books, you name it. When an idea strikes, you've got to get it down. It could be a poem, as in this case...I'll "translate" it for you when I get back from the grocery store...a song, an art idea, story line, doodle, drawing, or decorating idea...If I don't put it on paper, I'm libel to forget it...I have learned, most of the time to carry a little notepad with me, which helps, but if I don't have one, then anything will do! So, when an idea strikes, write on!

Not sure what to say about this picture...other than I ADORE it! I love the COLORS, the flower REFLECTED in the RAINDROP...the SWIRLS...the SUNSPOTS shaped in, humm, hexagons? No, I can only see 7 sides...I DO hope that you...
