Daily Face: July 11th

It's so easy as we get older to not want to change, because we are comfortable. I've been trying to teach myself new tricks. I draw as many Daily Face portraits on my calendar as I can when I have free time. It has made a difference, now as the week goes along I am ready. I would prefer to only draw on the calendar day, but since I changed jobs I can no longer do that.
 Also I don't have access to students to draw anymore so I started using mugshots, but they are not happy faces. I decided to make them happy and dress them in nice apparel.
I like to meditate, but with less time everything I like to do has been crowded out. Today I was reading an article about open-eye meditation. I will learn how to do that also, so I can do it even while I am in Triage waiting or the next patient.
My run time has suffered also. I have been trying to be consistent about  waking up at 4 am to run but it is not happening. Today I located the free gym facilities my new job offers. I'm hoping that when I get of I can get in a 30 minute gym workout. Its not a hour run, but its better than doing nothing. So if you are challenged with new obstacles in your life figure out how to make it work for you.

Daily Face: July 8th

OK, so this mugshot does not totally sad. I'm working on turning their frowns into smiles and changing their clothing. I love the Stylewe website which is where their clothing will come from.

Drawings - A few free minutes

 The morning started off slow at work, so I took a piece of scrap paper and began to doodle. These are the doodles I made.

Daily Face: July 7th

So I decided to continue to draw the mugshots but give them a happier look and change their prison top to something more fashionable.
On this mugshot I only changed the top.She looks scared and unhappy.

Daily Face: July 6th

Things did not turn out the way I expected, but it was a good day.

God is always there and when you need that extra help call on other Christians to say a prayer for you too.
What a difference prayer makes.

Daily Face: June 27th

I went in feeling strong and confident, and came out feeling weak and uncertain. Live in the moment, who knows what tomorrow will bring!

Daily Face: June 24th

I need to find happier portraits to illustrate. However this is good practice drawing mugshots.

Another mugshot portrait.

Daily Face: June 20th

My first official mugshot on my calendar. I'm quite happy the way that it turned out.
Today I woke up feeling sad because everything is not going the  way that I would have  it, but after my morning devotion, I realize that this is a lie to take my focus off of God. Then I read an article from the New York Times about what is going on in Venezuela, how the country cannot supply enough food for everyone, how the whole country is an economical upheaval. I feel so truly blessed.

What's Blooming in my Garden

Look at my beautiful flowers! I'm so happy that the winter did not damage them as I thought.

Daily Face: Mugshot? June 18th

It has been such a long time since I last posted anything. Changing jobs after 15 years is a lot harder than I expected. New people, I no longer have a office to  myself, working longer hours, but I know that I will get the hang of it.
The  thing that I miss the most is the children and drawing portraits of them. Although I'm still working with children in the hospital, I cannot draw pictures of them.
I tried to draw people on their lunch breaks, but I'm not ready for that. So I am just going to attempt to draw mugshots until I figure out something else.
I'm really trying to figure out how to work my new schedule. Which has put drawing to a complete stop.

What's Blooming? Hosta's & things

Click for closer view

I have a few varieties of hosta's in my backyard. Which I love. I have a beautiful pink rose. I planted some phlox in my antique wooden planter. The daylilies are in bloom. My hydrangea is suffering from southern heat and one of the coleus that I experimented with by bringing it inside for winter is slowly looking better, however the color isn't as vibrant.
