Our days can be busy and tense, sometimes we need to be still, feel the moment, be open to the wonder that surrounds us.

Participating in the art everyday month challenge has been fun and inspiring. Some days I forced myself to make time out of a busy day to create art and it was always worth it. The end result of the challenge, art was created everyday. (minus a few days when I was sick)
Now on to something new,

Little Miss O, happy birthday! It has been 10 years since the day we were graced with your beautiful little face with the rosy cheeks. You gave us a gift of love with your presence, excited to finally hold you in our arms.
In these 10 years you have grown and so has your personality! Dear, you are the most caring, loving child with a wonderful sense of humor and an imaginative spirit. You are shy at times but when the choosing strikes you can be bold, vocal with need to have the last word. You are my love and inspire me everyday. You show me how to live in the moment and see the wonder in everything!
Happy 10th Birthday!
Love you to the moon and back……
Stands tall high above all
Out stretched hands grasping
High on her feet the cold hard surface pressing
One step forward
guided by the future
Still standing tall high above all
Sometimes we are given words and ideas and we just need to get it out of the head and write them down or draw it out. It so happened that the words came to me first. Years later thought the sketch was appropriate for this.
Some sketches that I captured on an excursion to my favorite scenic locale. Enjoyed a nice evening walk with my family, accompanied with a picnic and relaxing by the water watching the rowers. My goal is to carry my sketchbook with me more often.
