Sunday Sketches an Random Things

 I started making this sketch the other night and it was funny I am taking a workshop with Louise Gale Big Dreams Small Wonders and I was working ahead and in the workbook it said to draw a tree and write affirmations on the leaves and ground. Isn't that funny how things work. Now I have my tree and I just have to put my affirmations on there and it goes well with Sunday Sketches.
 
I also wanted to let you know we finally got snowwwwww. Yippee!!!!!! I am so excited. I am one of those crazy people that loves snow!!! I told my Steve that we were going to have to move up north if it doesn't start to snow. (He wasn't going for that)   I need my snow.  And news is we may get a footer on Tuesday and Wed. Ahhhh I love it!  I figure if it all the leaves and flowers are gone we need to have some prettiness(is that a word) on the ground. Beautiful white snow.
                                  Not much but enough to make me smile.



This is my spot in the bed. When ever I get out of bed this is where she goes.

This is Lulu. She is scalped. My poor baby. If you remember prior posts. When she came home from the groomers she looked at me like she was saying " I have been violated" She was so pathetic.
I think she is cold the other night I was sleeping and I was thinking that Steve was getting snugly and I got up to go to the bathroom and I saw Lulu squeezing in the middle of Steve and I. Poor Baby. I think she needs a coat but Steve says "Oh no way am I walking the dog with a coat on" Men......


This is a painting I started in my Flora Bowley workshop. I am still working on it. I have been trying to complete it . Not finished yet.

I have been off from my job past week. I always take the week after the New Year off because I like to just get organized and get some things done. Well I did not get much done because I was under the weather. All week I was fighting some kind of bug.  But I managed to work on this painting. Steve bought me my new large bed scanner for Christmas and I still did not get to set it up. But that is OK I figure I am going to get rid of all the bugs and viruses early this year so now I can concentrate.


If you have time go over to my daughter Nelly's blog. I am so proud of her. She just wrote her first poem. I always told her she was meant to be writer.

Well I guess this is enough for now. See you in a day or two.

Nicola said...

Hi Heather!

I LOVE your tree!!! so beautiful!!! And your painting looks very interesting can't wait to see it finished!

Our dog has a little coat she is a really little thing and her fur isn't very thick at all and sometimes at the moment in the summer we even had to put a little sunscreen on her ears as you can see the pink skin underneath and she might get burnt! I'm sure we'll use the coat in the winter as she seems to get cold easily bless her! I love the little red scarf you've got round Lulu, sooo cute! :0)

Christine said...

that's an interesting interpretation of a tree. Very nice.

Your tree woman is bursting with natural earthiness and sensuality! She is pretty and mysterious...!

What a beautiful tree...a she-tree!
And your painting is amazing, so unusual and inviting...I'd love to see it close up!
I laughed about the bit with your man and the dog coat...we are deciding on getting a dog and my significant other has stated the size it should be..in no uncertain way is it allowed to be small enough to fit in a handbag!haha! :)

The Hermits' Garden said...

I bet the tree sketch took a long time! Love the eyes.

What kind of dog is your little one? We have a mini-schnauzer...is she one?

Diane said...

Ahhh--what a talent--everything--I love! Your Lulu is so cute too. I'm not that crazy about snow, probably because we haven't seen any grass here since the end of November, but...it does keep everything bright!

Mary Welsh Hubbard said...

love the tree. I wish we would get some snow. We've had a few dustings. We thought we were getting about 5 inches tomorrow but they changed it to up to 1 inch! gaaah - I want snow!
