Preserving the Joy of Life

This little sketch is from my art journal.  When I travel I take my art journal and a few sets of colored pencils…minimizing packing art supplies is not easy!  The words on this piece “preserve what you love in life” does have a special meaning.  I’m presently visiting my younger daughter (my hubby is home supervising a bathroom remodel while I have fun…he is a great guy!) and taking care of her little doggie while she travels for a few days.  My older daughter is further away.  We visit and text a lot but we only see one another a few times a year.  The last couple times we’ve visited she has canned pears, apples, you name it, she loves all that domestic “stuff”.  So, today my thoughts were with her and I pictured the mason jars she is filling with the future bounty they will enjoy! 

Keep all those special memories preserved close to your heart!copy Mason

Finished Bigger!

Completed my Cityscape and photographed it outside this morning.  I like photographing my art outside because the light is so much better.  Feels good to have this bigger piece finished.  It’s hanging presently in my dining room as I just wanted to look at it for a bit, decided to probably sell it.  I’ve purchased some larger canvases and boards to continue creating on larger surfaces.

Have a great Sunday everyone and thanks for visiting my blog!
