Where have I been....



 I've been taking a break ....
The end of 2013 was a little to much to take
as most of you know. The lose of Midnight and Teddy
and then my girlfriend was just to much.


 Christmas Day sunset at Rattlesnake Lake.
My son and I went for a nice walk up at  the lake as
we needed to walk off all the goodies we had been eating.
Such a beautiful sunset (my photo just
 doesn't capture all the colors.

Now 2014 has arrived and I am slowly getting back 
into the groove and looking forward to a great year.

Made up more mobiles as they had sold out. I
love these colorful watercolor birdies.
Then I decided to keep a journal of what is
going on in my life. Bought a Moleskine 
weekly notebook. I have been adding
fold outs, envelopes, whatever moves me.
Pretty much a lot of practice stuff.
doodle practice. I found some great videos
on UTUBE (of course)...
and in my big journal...
So I am slowly getting back into painting,
taking my time and just enjoying life.

Sometimes we just need a little break. Glad that you took the time you needed.

I'm pretty sure, from this post, that the break was just what you needed. You had a hard end to '13. I hope that '14 is easier on you!

It is good to see you back - you've been on my mind lately. I'm glad you got the break you needed - and hope you can take more of them. The sunset is gorgeous too.

Your notebooks inspire me - love the little sketches that you do - just lovely - so spur of the moment.

Time is always a great healer, & that's what you needed. It's so nice to see what you're doing. I'm always doodling, especially when I talk on the telephone, so thanks for the tip of finding it on Utube. Your new journal is looking good, show us more.

It's great to have you back Sharon, i just got back recently myself, as 2013 left me on the edge. The death of my sister in May and my mother just days before Christmas took the wind out of me. So I understand how you feel Sharon. Here is to a better 14.

So glad you took some time for yourself, I too had to step back and just breath after the loss of my sister and mother all within 7 months, but with a new year ahead I am slowly coming around again. Hugs to you. Glad your back.

Dear Sharon - so sorry to hear about your friend. I am glad you did take a break. Sometimes one has to take time to grieve. Your sunset is beautiful and those mobile birds are awesome. I am looking up for you dear one. So glad you are back.
