Looks like systems are up and running again, yay!  I did this sketch a few days ago, right now we are enjoying the effects of tropical storm Andrea.  It has been pouring rain all day, so I have not been sketching outside.  Good thing I love backruns because this background is a mess!  The big blue bloom almost looks like I intentionally put a cloud there in the background.  I usually don't do backgrounds because I muck them up; but I am trying to let go and just play, and you know, its not half bad.

I have been keeping up with my half hour (at least) of creating everyday.  I might not be able to  post every single day, but I can always do a catch up and post several days of sketches together.

Stay tuned...

I have never posted without photos but I can't get anything to upload.  We just had a powerful storm with hail and a power outage; not sure if there is a connection.  I do know I couldn't view photos in other people's blogs either for a while after the storm had passed.  Anyway, I just want to give myself credit for getting my 30 minutes of art in today, even though it is late, and even though I am tired after a big family adventure. I'm sure I will completely replace this post when everything is working again.

Here is a little sample of what I have been working on today.  These sheets are part of a larger project; I am making props to go in a storefront window display.  I feel like a kid again just making dots and swirls and not being particular about what it looks like.
