Whether it’s in real life (reality) or hung on the wall, or on your table, art is the spice of life. Give a comment and say what your favorite type of art is.

It’s In The Blood Lines

New logo created with my Amazon Sketch App.

Hidden Talent

With moving out of the shop 10 months ago and cleaning up mom’s studio at home, I discovered a talent that I have and completely shut out since I 12-13 years old.  Mom found this huge brief case filled with drawings that I did in high school.  It took me a while to realize that I created these drawings and paintings, then it hit me like a ton of bricks that I actually did create these paintings and drawings.  I never really realized how good I was until I found some scrap paper and started to draw some things.  Realizing that I have a part of my mother’s drawing talent, I can create some great things on my own.  For example, I created this new logo above with a sketch app on my Amazon tablet.  It’s called a bohemian flower at midnight.  Being able to spread my wings and not only doing crochet, this is great.  Below this paragraph, is more drawings that I’ve created in the last couple of weeks, along with the drawings that I discovered in high school.

New Drawings

After discovering this hidden talent, I immediately went on Pinterest to get some ideas for drawing and went to Michael’s Arts And Crafts for my birthday gift and bought sketchbooks, pencils, markers and a book with sketch ideas.  I can do faces and other items, but I also wanted to see some symbols and try some symbols that I find inspiring.  Below is a Celtic symbol for love and a mountain drawing on the inside and a peace symbol on the outside.

The High School Years

One of the drawings found in a portfolio brief case found in the back of mom’s studio.  This simple geometric drawing filled with crayons is simple, unique and filled with color.  For the geometric person, this is for you!
