Forgotten Flashback: Jan 9th 2015 #art #dnartcorner

This is not a post I take lightly. Some days just plain suck. Unfortunately this was one of them. For a while now, I have had on and off health issues with my heart. In January of last year I woke up with pains in my chest. Rather than take a risk and stay home…

Flashback Friday Comeback: Feb 18th #art #mixedmedia #dnartcorner

Long time no see… It’s been awhile since my last post. Alas, I have been plagued with cold-then-flu which had me out of the loop for a long while. I am been slowly starting to feel human again. While I have been away the weeks have been zipping on by. Many Fridays have come and gone without…

Flashback Friday: Escape from the cold #art #ink #mixedmedia

That first brisk chill in the air, to the first puff of frosty breath, to the first flake that hits the ground are all signs that winter is just around the corner. Depending on who you ask, winter has already begun. Meteorological winter starts on December 1st while our traditional almanac states that winter begins during…

Hello readers, I can’t believe it is already December! My how time flies! Amongst the Christmas craziness and commercialism that surrounds the holidays, I take great solace in drawing in my journal. There is something special about putting pen to paper creating lines, words and adding a splash of color. It’s very meditative and calming….
