A Lazy Somewhat Creative Day....

It's a new week, and I'm feeling much better....more grounded and less sad about missing my son. Yesterday HB was busy studying for some updates he has to do for his licensing so I went off to the studio.

It was a nice day....not too cold, a little cloudy but the sun popped through several times and I had the window open just enough to get some fresh air. Ahhhh, peace and quiet! It was heaven. Oops! I forgot to mention that first thing yesterday morning I went out to Joann's and bought the Shades of Grey Pitt pens and I love them!!

I played around with several things not really doing anything special....a few ATCs were made, a couple of books were looked at and ideas came to me for things I'd like to do but mostly I just enjoyed my own company! Is that weird?

Late in the day I pulled out my moleskine and did another face. I like how she turned out....

I did some rough sketches for several more faces so they will be coming along later.

I hope you all had a great weekend....


  1. Your sketches are so cool. I love how easy and free you are with your looks effortless.

  2. What a nice lady - I love her leaf hair.

  3. what wonderful sketches! so glad to hear that you are missing you son a little less each day... i like that you enjoyed your own company.. I guess that is exactly what I do when I create in my art room

  4. I love her, I wanted to keep looking at her...thank You for the note, Arney got pink frosting all over was good. Your, Mary

  5. I'm glad to see that you are creating again Janet and I love the new face.

  6. The angle of her head is the same as your picture on your blog to the right of it. Did you notice that Janet? Maybe this one is a self-portrait? LOL Did you do her with your new pens? I never heard of them before. I'll try to remember to check them out at Jo-Ann's next time I am near there.

  7. Lovely sketch...she looks quite elegant to me.

    I'm glad you're feeling much better re. your son.

    love, light and peace,

  8. I think you enjoyed your own company so much you drew yourself in essence...:)) I love her!
    Love days like that too...glad you feel better.

  9. I don't think that's weird at all! I love spending some time alone. Love the face.

  10. I'm glad HB is with you so you aren't alone. I love the gray pens.. Never used those, but you make a good recommendation!

  11. It is NOT weird to like your own company. I like my own company and spend a lot of blissful time alone with myself.
