Learning to Draw – With Paint — Artistcoveries

“…some artists like to do detailed drawings to use as reference before they paint, but many don’t. Some artists do drawings directly onto their canvas before they start to paint, but many don’t.”

One Holiday Down, Two More To Go

Hope everyone had a safe and happy Thanksgiving with friends and family.  The Prock family had a nice, quiet Thanksgiving at home with all the trimmings from The Glenn Sanders Mansion aka Mazzone Hospitality.  When you get down to how much a turkey costs, side dishes, and long it takes to make the meal, this is the best way to go.  Not to mention, the amount of leftovers you have after.  I haven’t cooked a meal since last Wednesday and I love it.  With the Prock family cleaning and running around doing stuff, I didn’t have time to post recipes for the holidays.  Stay tuned for new recipes for Christmas and New Years.  New handmade items are also going to be uploaded to both my Facebook fan page and right here on my blog, I’m currently working on new peace hearts.

Hawk Symbolism

Definition from https://www.spirit-animals.com/hawk-symbolism/

If a hawk totem has flown into your life, you must pay attention. You are about to receive a message from Spirit. Thus, you will need to take the time to interpret and integrate this message into your daily life. To help you interpret your hawk meaning, you must take into consideration that this bird holds the key to a higher consciousness. Therefore, it will try to bring these things into your circle of awareness and consciousness. When hawk symbolism presents itself, know that enlightenment is imminent. Also, hawk symbolism often represents the ability to see meaning in ordinary experiences if you choose to become more observant.  In other words, many of the messages this bird brings to you are about freeing yourself from thoughts and beliefs that are limiting your ability to soar above your life and gaining a higher perspective. In the long run, it is this ability to rise high above to catch a glimpse of the bigger picture that will allow you to survive and flourish.
