EDM # 28 - Stainless Steel Stoves

This is my stainless steel stove. I was so happy to get a new stove that I didn't think about the top being black. A word to the wise don't purchsae this kind. The black top shows everything and you have to constantly clean it.

EDM # 39 - Toothbrush

My new toothbrush still in the original box :) Do you remember changing your toothbrush so much when you were little? (for those over 35) I can't remember how many times I got a new one growing up. Now when the blue fades on the bristles it is time to say good bye. Do you ever wonder why some people don't throw away their old toothbrushes. They have a cup full of frayed brushes. What's so hard about throwing them away. If you want to reuse them place them somewhere else like under your sink or in your shoe cleaning supplies box. If you would like to read a good book on on taking care of your teeth I recommend Tooth Fitness by Thomas McGuire,DDS. Do you know that more women have dreams of their teeth falling out then men. Once I had a dream that I was standing in front of the bathroom mirror and I pulled out one of my teeth then one by one they started to fall out. I was so happy it was a dream!

Have you ever been excited, anxious, or confident about something that was going to happen in your life and in a brief moment everything changes. It takes a direction you did not anticipate. How do you recover and pull yourself back up? Pray and speak encouraging words to yourself. You must not let this set you back. Think positively! Our minds will take us away into a deep despair. Be of good courage and commit thy way unto the Lord. God is with you and he will see you through. How long will that take? No one knows, just don't give up.


Practicing faces in watercolor without drawing first. One day I hope to achieve some type of form when painting skintones. There are so many artist out there whose work on faces I really admire. Can you tell the differences in the faces? They are Stern, Sophiticated, and Unconfident.


My prayers go out to the parents, families, and victims of Virginia Tech.

IF: Fortune

When I think of fortune I think of entering Heaven where everyone has a mansion and the streets are paved of gold. There will be no more sorrow and no more pain. One day I hope to truly capture this in my art, but for now here is my attempt.

IF - Green

2nd Attempt Because of a Tornado warning we got home from Bible study a little earlier. So I attempted my bug on the windshield again. My husband didn't get it. I forgot the gear shift on this picture. 1st Attempt Attempting to come up with something for IF on green. I don't like the colors of the inside of van. Can you see the giant bug splat on the window? If I get time I'll try it again.

EDM # 1: My Shoes

I recently read an article about what do your shoes say about you. All of the women highlighted had jobs where they could wear really nice shoes. My job requires that I wear practical shoes. My boots are as flashy as I get and with spring fast approaching it's time to put them away. The sexy looking open toe shoe is not mine but the inner me. I don't wear my toes out when I'm working at school. So I guess if I was in that article they would say, "she's boring". I do however have some nice shoes. I will draw them next time.

IF - Snap

I really was trying hard to come up with something different. This was suppose to be an abstract version of a hand snapping, at first it looked like a bird which my daughter confirmed.

IF- Snap 2

This is how I felt filling out the forms for the taxes for my Business and Business License. I don't know why I didn't give it to my accountant. I thought it was going to be easy. Then I waited til the deadline to complete it.

Just finished Rereading

Visit my Book catalog I haven't been drawing although I thought I would have more time since its spring break here. I guess not beening at home changes my routine too much. It's my dad's birthday. April Fools! No it really is his birthday.
