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.

Daily Face: May 13th Farewell

Today was my last day of working in the School Clinic of 15 years. It was a big decision to move on from my part-time position to a full time position.  I always enjoyed part-time because it did not interfere with me being a mom first and since I worked for the school I was always off when they were off. Our last daughter went off to college in 2015 so now I am moving to the hospital to work in the Pediatric ER.
Now I have to figure out what I will do for my daily drawing. I had always admire artist who had daily painting or illustration, it took me a long time to find my niche. There was not much inspiration in my little office, until I started to draw faces of the children who would come in. I do not know what is in store for me at the hospital. Maybe I can sketch on my lunch break?
I did draw a week of extra portraits just in case.

Tidbits of My Life.

I was finally able to harvest some of my strawberries. Something was devouring them before we could pick them.

I finally saw a real Tiny House. I love to watch all of the episodes of Tiny House, Tiny House Hunters and Tiny House Hunting. Do you think you could get rid of all your stuff and go small? That idea is daunting to me. But it can be done, just by changing your mindset.

Daily Face: May 5th

Today was so windy and cool, you would not think that it was spring in Georgia.

Sometimes trying to make the right decision is hard. Pray, ask for guidance, choose and don't look back.

What's Blooming

 I love to grow plants in pots. Here are the perennials growing in my garden.  Remember my lantern, this is what it looks like at night with a tea light in it.
