Gettin’ Busy!

Spring is well in bloom. The animals are twitterpated. The sun is hot and beaming. The work load has increased and….what was that thing I was suppose to do? Oh right! Have a post ready for Monday! I’m sorry I’m late folks but this season has been go, go, go since it started. I’ve beenContinue reading “Gettin’ Busy!”

Free Spirit Familiars

With being such a big animal lover, I figured it was time to introduce you to my familiars. First, let’s start with Sasha. Sasha is our 15 year old white German Shepherd. My husband belongs to her. She is quite a queen bee, of course she is at that wise old age. She gets whateverContinue reading “Free Spirit Familiars”

Mother Earth

I hope everyone had a magnificent Mother’s Day! Unfortunately my mother and I live about 600 miles away from each other so I was not able to tell her in person. Thanks to my brother though, she did not have to spend the day alone.  My son woke me with a sweet voice and aContinue reading “Mother Earth”

The Hunt for Heron

Yesterday was just too gorgeous of a day to stay indoors. I felt as though I had been neglecting my camera for quite some time, so I brought it along as my family and I went to play near the creek. I ventured down the creek to see what wildlife I could find. As always, there wereContinue reading “The Hunt for Heron”

Free Spirit WIP

Spring came and then the snow followed! At least where I am! I’m scratching my head confused as to how this happened. Two days ago I was thinking about wearing shorts. Today I have two pairs of pants and three shirts on, struggling to stay warm! Baffling! Well, enough about weather. Let’s talk art! I’veContinue reading “Free Spirit WIP”

Childish Chalk Talk

“All children are artists. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up.” -Pablo Picasso I came across a video of an artist, Ruth Oosterman, painting a picture using her toddler’s doodle as her layout. You can check out the video at the bottom of this post. I thought it was a reallyContinue reading “Childish Chalk Talk”

Free Spirit Leap Year!

How exciting! We have come to another leap year! What will you do with your extra day this year? Perhaps a marriage proposal will arise? In Irish history, it was called Bachelor’s day. Women were allowed to purpose to men on a leap day. If the man said no, he was forced to pay a penalty. HeContinue reading “Free Spirit Leap Year!”

Free Spirit Flashback

I came across a bunch of old sketchbooks and school projects the other day. It’s really funny to look back and see the drawings you did as a kid and compare them through the years. I thought it would be neat to do a timeline of my work for my latest post. I wasn’t ableContinue reading “Free Spirit Flashback”

A Visual Universe

I have been diligent with keeping a sketchbook lately. I am usually terrible about it, inconsistent. I use to think there was a right and a wrong way to use a sketchbook and it discouraged me. I always make things harder on myself then they really have to be. Like there is a secret IContinue reading “A Visual Universe”

Do It in the Dark!

Yep…I did it in the dark. I drew in my sketchbook with no lights on and it was crazy! (get your mind out of the gutter, perverts :P) I have a magical sketchbook entitled “Drawing is Magic” by John Hendrix. It is kind of like a guide book for artists. I have been trying to rediscover myselfContinue reading “Do It in the Dark!”
