Simple Pleasures

This is a painting I started prior to the holidays and never got around to finishing. Another work in progress, like yours truly. I think she has potential, and would like to continue on with it. (Yes, I know that I said I was gonna let go of last year's unfinished pieces, but this ain't one of 'em! Besides there's plenty more. Ha!) The scan didn't do it much justice. It's time for a new scanner/printer. But alas and alack, I'm still waiting for that winning lotto ticket to come in.
Anyhoo, for the month of January I've been keeping a Doodle Art Journal. I just kind of stumbled on to the idea one day, while sitting around with my five year old, wanting to create but unable to delve into anything too serious. (Anyone, with an active five year old will relate, I'm sure) Besides I've been in a sort of creative funk. So, this was just simple playtime, with a black pen, some colored pencils and cheap watercolor cakes. It was rather therapeutic. And anyone who knows me, knows I can use all the therapy I can get!
So I'll be sharing those soon. I know, your on the edge of your seat, right?
In the meantime I hope everyone enjoys the simple pleasures of a creative week.

Hi Darcy! :D I LOVE this painting and I can totally relate to the need for therapy and the creative funk. At least you're coming out of yours - this is gorgeous! Thanks for your visit today - it was great to find your comment :)

It's me...with your zazzle info. :)
I originally went there to make t-shirts and such to give as Christmas gifts. I did post a few for sale but didn't get much traffic. Until a few weeks ago when I added Valentine's cards, postage stamps, and magnets. I've sold quite a few of those and things are booming there now.
So cards are maybe the way to get started there.
(the t-shirts I bought were quite nice- BTW)
That's all I got. Hope it helps.

She is beautiful!! Definitely worth finishing. I too am trying to finish some of my works, sometimes they need to rest before speaking to you again.
Great having a doodle journal, for some reason I don't doodle, weird I know.
