Is there anything creative left in me?

For a long time I thought to myself, I’m all out of art. I’ve got nothing creative left. I just scribble and block in the shapes with color. But after looking at these blocks of color I have to say, this is art, and I like it. I started off drawing with a black gel […]

Finally it happened to me

The dry spell is over! I painted up a storm today. I completed the painting The Young Violinist as well as worked on a few other pieces such as flower girls and another sisters painting. It felt good. Here’s the fun I had. The Young Violinist is in my Etsy shop at www.sundrip.etsy.com . Faith

In my therapy session today we talked about the dream I had just before he called. In the dream I was 47 but in the 2nd grade. I sat as an adult in South Korea with second grade children in class. The teacher taught evolution but one student spoke up to the teacher and class […]

You have so much love to give, that’s what makes you special.

I have a little one who was born in a small division of Indiana called Rosedale Hills. She was born in a home where art, music, love and laughter fill the rooms. The scent of joy is roses. The feel of care is as smooth as cream as its poured into what will become sweet […]

The Little More Girl

I finished her! Yay! She looks a lot different from the last post. What a difference a few hours can make. The Little More Girl has more hope and more ways to grow than she ever realized. I think part of my happy clap is the frog green dress she’s wearing. I also do a […]

The Little Moore Girl in Loops, Lines and Pearls

I tend to work on many pieces at one time, including this little one here.  She was created by scribbling loops on the page, erasing in areas then connecting lines to picture this little girl. The other drawing in this entry was created by the same process of  loops, lines and pearls. Sketchbook art in […]
