Not tossed by the Wind

Ask in faith so that you will not be like a wave of the sea.

Another uncolored illustration that I revisited, added some color with markers and did the background in Photoshop.

Autumn at my Home: Welcome

My Front Porch
Welcome to my home. It's slowly becoming my most favorite time of the year Autumn. I have so many fond memories of playing outside, reading a book, playing in the leaves. I miss having the front porch of my childhood, but I'll work with what I have. I found this deacon's bench at an estate auction. It fits perfectly. I can sit, have coffee and read while the cool air fills my soul. (Click picture for closer look)

My Flesh is as Grass

Today I went to Barnes and Noble, look through some of my favorite magazines, became inspired, became frustrated with myself, and practiced drawing. Then I went back to one of my old sketchbooks picked out a drawing that I was afraid to add color to and this is the result. I colored the leaves, dress, and face with markers, then scanned it, colored the background in Photoshop. I am pleased!

I am a Runner!

 I am a runner. I'm no professional but, I love to wake up at 5 a.m. put on my running gear and go. My neighborhood is great for short runs and we live close to a trail for long runs. I am happy with my short run pace, if only I could keep it when I run longer.
I've met a lot of older women in their 70's who are my role models. They still get out there and do it. That's the way I want to be.
Although I am not consistent with my art, I can say I am at running and reading. I don't feel like I'm in my fifties.
