Alex and Violet

I have a hardtime doing Portraits. The reasoning is, I don’t want my faces to look creepy-faced!  You know what I mean.  The distrorted face: eyes in the wrong places or evil eyed, nose all jacked up, bad shading, man hands on a women, haha< the Creepy protrait.  Not what I want to be known to do.  So, I’m half heartily putting it out there to be critiqued. Be nice! It is a gift:)

Naomi and Sarah

Boy oh Boy, have the garden and chickens taken up all my spare time these days.  Don’t get me wrong, I love gardening and the hard work that goes into it. The best part is the benefits with fresh fruits and veggies to last us threw the summer and into winter…crossing my fingers:)  I still need my quiet creative time…

Christmas Morning

Christmas Morning

I have a watercolor portrait I’m working on and I needed some inspiration. So, I headed to my filed paintings, from years past, and I found one of my favorites.  Golly, I can’t remember what year it was. It was the winter of the ice storm in Columbus, Ohio.  Naomi, Sarah and their whole Family  (The Saum’s), along with their grandmother who was visiting from Kansas during Christmas break, were all staying at our house.  All because they did not have electricity at their place.  We were, eleven in all, able to enjoy our friendship for cozy eight days.  I had a houseful on Christmas morning and I loved it.  This shot was taken Christmas Morning:)  Later that year, Sarah had graduated from college and I wanted to celebrate her life!  I hope you like it.

I’m inspired!  🙂

Happy Creating!
