Today was a 2-pot O'Coffee Day! It was the kind of day where the snooze alarm gets hit 6 times before waking. It was the kind of day where you had to wear Wellingtons to get the mail. It was the kind of day that at High Noon - it was so dark, you thought it was 8 pm. All in all - it was awesome day.

I feel since you can't change the weather - you might as well enjoy it. I seriously think we collected about 2" of rainfall. Now - a heavy mist blankets us. I find that comforting. And the rain was truly needed.

This weekend, I made my first sketch in my new Moleskin. It was something that I just *had* to do. The fear was incredibly intense. Clean, crisp pages.... Actually, clean, crisp, BLANK pages can scare the most talented into bubbling mess.

Thanks to my artist friend HaLLa - we decided to motivate each other. Here is my the dabble of a very colorful couch. Suffice to say ... I even did a little spindle spinning! Heck, might as well go with the creative flow ..... The spindle was loving created by Miss HaLLa! Isn't it cool? Remember .... Inspire Art! Create Art! Buy Art! Be ART!! Comments, please!

Good for you, Kary! The sketch is beautiful. I completely understand about Blank Page Syndrome -- it can be scary. Keep up the good work!

Hi Kary!
Thank You for stopping by my blog!
i think your drawing is great - they "fit" perfectly together! Me too, I am scared of blank pages, plus - I think I can`t control the colors...
