Sketchbook Sunday: Gel pen flowers

My wonderful art buddy gave me a gaint pack of gel pens as a birthday gift. Feels just as exciting as receiving diamonds. I love art supplies! So I played with them this morning, getting ready for my Painting Flowers in Mixed Media class that starts this week at the Attleboro Arts Museum. Feeling happy and blessed.

Spring flowers

Playing around with flowers for this month’s theme for Creative Every Day Challenge.

The beauty of what is

photoThis weekend was jam-packed with activities, including a wonderful birthday party at a friend’s house. It was such a great gathering outside on a slightly-chilly-but-sunny afternoon—plenty of food (including dishes I had never heard of like coo coo and fish) and lots of relaxation and fun. Good thing that my son, husband and I started the day off by working out at the Y. We collapsed into a pleasant food coma when we got home.

Sunday was another great weather day, so I started the morning by going out and finally, finally (don’t judge me) taking down the Christmas tree lights. Hey, I have a hard time letting go of Christmas. 🙂

I took my time soaking up the sun, loving the view of what remains of the tulips in my yard and just breathing. I didn’t get around to making any art this weekend, unless you count putting flowers into pots for the front steps. But sometimes it is important just to slow down and enjoy the beauty of what is.

This month’s theme for Creative Every Day Challenge is flowers, so this perfectly fits.

AEDM (Day 4): Zentangle with color; flower

Two offerings today for Day 4 of Art Every Day Month–a zentangle, which I used color on and a bunch of flowers (so not me, but a nice change of pace). Long week. Tired. Keeping it short.
