I am still drawing and painting but only in the sketch book. I am thinking its time (when this one is done) to be a little more adventurous. The goal here was to loosten up. To try to simplify my art. I always seem to overdo it with watercolour. So this experiment began and I have enjoyed it.
I told Tristen I would draw him a little book. I think I will do that next. Meanwhile here are a few sketches for what they are worth. Not meant to be good, just practice.
I also wondered about a little book of quotes with illustrations, a cheer me up sort of book. I have no idea how to go about it but it sounded like a good idea
I am also thinking of a Facebook page and maybe an Etsy shop......maybe I can find someone to help me understand the process.
I need to know from people who do it, how you wrap pictures to preserve them, sort of shrink wrap? or envelopes?
I can use my sketch books for ideas.
I am thinking maybe some pictures for kids bedrooms or something like that. Simple things.
They will all have to be originals, my own ideas. That will be the difficult part. I will write down ideas and this winter maybe will be productive. Can't do much in the summer, I will spend my time with Tristen and taking pictures. Maybe that will inspire me.

This part of my blog is all about the things I collect or the things I make myself. I love so many things, I paint and draw and want to learn oils and pastels. I knit and crochet but want to learn tatting. I embroider and can turn my hand to most things given a chance. So much still to learn and do. I live in hope of some day reading all my books, learning all I want to learn and now I am learning to blog. You will often find my original poems, poor as they are I offer them here. I also appreciate other people art and will feature things I find that I have enjoyed. That includes pictures of fairies and fantasy or maybe just anything beautiful.
I try to use my own photo's as much as possible, sometimes I borrow from the web. If I inadvertently use your picture without giving credit, please do let me know and I will either credit or remove it, I hope you will do the same with mine.
If you wish to leave comments on my blog you can do that by joining google if you do not have a blog yourself, please comment if you can I appreciate that.
