My Art Journal




I have my little sketchbook and I have been practicing my portraits and journaling in it with different media. I am drawn to woman, animals & birds in my pages. My faces are improving but I have a long way to go. I am going to be brave and post a few of my pages. I finally have a few days off in a row and art will be big part of my time. I can loose myself in the process and just create. The best stress relief I have come by yet!. Today is Thanksgiving and I am thankful for my family and friends. I am also thankful I have a job as so many do not. Even though I struggle, there are those much worse off. I am thankful that my sister is "cancer free" and my children are beautiful, smart ( honor roll for both ), and funny. I am thankful for my animals who provide me endless amounts of joy and my husband, Dan, that I love in spite of the rocky road we are always on. Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!

It's wonderful to see your art here Sandy! Thanks for sharing. Your portraits are marvelous. I love faces and wish I could draw them but never seem to be able to. I'm glad you got some art time in. I look forward to seeing more in future.
