A Sunday Sketch… a day late…

I know I’m a little out of control here, but I’ve been meaning to post all of these from this past weekend. The sisters is my favorite,  but these too are just a couple of sketches that are fun. 🙂 Let me know what you think!

there's always hope

This one is really important to me. I heard a song on the radio the other day where one of the main lines was “be as you are” talking to a girl who was looking at magazines for her self image or to a teenager who threw up to stay thin enough for the world around her. The message of the song was, Young girl, be who God made you to be, because you are beautiful just as you, you are one of a kind, no one can be as beautiful as you are, because no one else is YOU!be as you are

Journey Together

Journey Together ... dedicated to my sisters... Amy and Becca :)

Journey Together ... dedicated to my sisters... Becca and Amy:)

To my sisters. You are both better than me. More beautiful. So very much more funny all the time-how do you do it?  So smart and wise. You always have something good to say. If you don’t you’re quiet and usually are reading a book. You don’t get caught up in the world- your focus is above. I’m so thankful for you both, both of you my beautiful, sweet, sisters. Let us journey this life together always.

confustion and inspiration try 2

don’t get me wrong. i love my job. it’s the best job i’ve ever had. somedays, like yesterday, though, my mind wanders and i dream.  i dream about what it would really be like to be so passionate about something that i would call my job that i would be excited and passionate about it every day. where my mind wouldn’t wander away. yesterday, as i was sitting at work, all i wanted to do was to go home and paint. that’s how excited i’ve been about painting lately! it’s been great inspiration, and i’m totally caught up in it. my job is great… but maybe there’s something better? i just get confused about the purpose of my life and how happiness, passion, excitement for what i do,  is suppossed to fit into that…

on another note… we went to Terhune Orchards today with some friends! what fun!

october and art 106

they had a “pick your own” flowers field. it was so much fun! and the flowers were gorgeous!! how do you ever only pick a few? as you can see we got a bunch… and JT had fun with the camera… 🙂 october and art 099 there were these two adorable kids, trying to lift their pumpkins up onto the wagon. the thing was… the pumkins were just as big as they were! i just thought it was too cute and had to take a picture 🙂 october and art 068 october and art 067

Love me Always dear one

Love

 

I just can’t get enough of painting these past few days! That’s all I did this weekend.  I wasn’t too impressed with most of what I finished. But I felt creative and I was getting back into the swing of things after a long time away.

 So I love painting people “portraits” of family and friends. I’ve done a lot of different paintings the past few years but I keep giving them away! So I’m determined to try to do some to keep as well as sell.  This little couple makes me smile and get all warm and fuzzy inside 😉 ha. The small text says, “by their fruits ye shall know them”. To me this means that the love that this couple is showing the world is true and everyone can recognize their “fruit” of love by how they treat each other as well as others with love. To use the cliche, “love covers all sin.” Please let me know what you think of one of my first attempts of the fall.

This summer, my husbuddy and I decided to get a puppy. Many of our family disapproved but we had just moved to the east coast and we were excited for the opportunity. So at the beginning of August we got a 9 week old Yorkie-Poo puppy.It was a little scary at first, as he is our first puppy and we didn’t know what we were doing. But now, at 4-1/2 months he is doing great, he’s mostly housetrained and we’re working on “sit” and “come” 🙂  He is adorable and non-stop entertainment. This morning we went for a lovely walk together. He is my little buddy while JT works on his school work. Here are some of my favorite photos of him. Let me know if you think he’s as cute as we do!
