Autumn 2020, A Work Of Art

Autumn always amazes me with the colors outside & the comfortable temperatures. Inspired by the photos and creating drawings is my favorite thing to do. With the colors at their peak, I figured I’d better grab some snapshots before the leaves fall off the trees.

Walking around the block and finding the unique leaf on the ground is another thing that inspires me. Walking around the block with Ginger (my dog) is another thing I like to do. The crispy air, crunching leaves, and no humidity. Nature is a work of art all around, here’s autumn. Hope you enjoy the photos I’ve taken.

Experimenting With Resin

Looking for new things to try, I bought resin about a month ago with molds. Like anything, I put it off to the side and decided to work on my sketches and drawings.

Teal Resin Ring.

Earlier this week, I finally decided to go for it and try it out. Since yesterday (Saturday September 5th, 2020), I decided to make some rings with this slightly stinky, beautiful material. These are just a few of the rings I modeled on my finger to show. The following rings I’m showing here are made with a white resin finish, sparkle, and ink.

When’s The Last Time?

For the last few months with the COVID-19 pandemic, I’ve been asking myself these questions. It’s been a long hall for everyone that’s known someone who’s had this or worse yet..

These are the questions I’ve been asking myself.

When’s the last time you were able to go out to a restaurant, eat a meal, and not have to do takeout?

When’s the last time you were able to go anywhere without having to practice social distancing & wear a mask every where you go?

When’s the last time parents were able to send their kids to school and not have to worry about their kids getting sick?

When’s the last time kids were able to go to school and sit in a classroom with a teacher/mentor & not have to learn at home with a computer?

When’s the last time kids were able to get together with friends and not have to talk on the phone, facetime, facebook messenger?

When’s the last time you were able to travel on the thruway and pay cash to a real person and not have a photo of your driver’s license taken then receive a bill in the mail?

Hope families and friends around the world are safe with this COVID-19 and a vaccine is on the way!

Camping On The Beach In My Heart

Thinking about lots of things, missing lots of things in my life after turning 42 on Tuesday, there’s one thing I truly miss and that’s camping. If there’s one kind of camping I’ve always wanted to do is camping on the beach. Putting a tent on the beach in front of the water with a small bonfire is what’s in my heart.

Heart Greetings And Prints

Who else besides me is tired of COVID-19, wearing a mask, not being able to go to a restaurant, little own even being able to go out? Wish they’d come out with a vaccine soon.

With this pandemic, the people who have lost a loved one, I thought some heart greeting cards and prints would cheer everyone up. Inspired by lots of things, my hearts reflect on what’s in my heart and mind for that day.

Inspired by heart art, mandala designs, greeting cards, prints, and all kinds of art. All of my art and greeting cards are signed @lmprock. Cards and prints are created with pens, color, and of course love. Find these beauties uploaded to my Etsy shop. Hope everyone stays safe during these difficult times. Peace, love, and prayers for those who have lost a loved one.

Clementine Orange/Honey Salmon, Mashed Cauliflower, & Mango

Salmon filets are the quickest thing to prepare for lunch or dinner. Add a simple side dish, and you’re all set.

1 Package Of Salmon Filets.

Two Clementine Oranges, Sliced.



Bird’s Eye Steam Fresh Mashed Cauliflower, Sour Cream & Chive, Or Any Side Dish You Desire.

Delmonte Sliced Mangos.

Clementine Orange For Garnish.

Pam Cooking Spray.


In a frying pan or griddle, spray Pam Cooking Spray and squeeze two oranges on the cooking spray, add as much pepper as you like. Place salmon filets in frying pan or griddle and saute until cooked. Slice one clementine orange for garnish when salmon is done cooking.

For Bird’s Eye Steam Fresh Mashed Cauliflower, I cook for five minutes with plastic film on top. After five minutes, I peel film off and cook for the rest of the seven minutes. When cauliflower is done cooking, remove from microwave and add a tablespoon of butter on top.

If you don’t like mashed cauliflower, add any side dish you like.

Add Delmonte mango on the side with orange slice and enjoy!
