Back to school !

Like I said, I have mixed feelings about back to school .The upside is definitely the routine and time factor. So , I jumped right in and started off the morning right with a cup of coffee and some whimsical sketching . Letting the pen flow in the quiet of the morning is very meditativeĀ . Before everyone is up and the morning rush to get to school takes over, I find that sketching/ painting/ drawing definitely gives me a sense of contentment as I start the day.

New phone case…

I’m excited ! I have a new phone. I have a new phone case. The phone case was designed by me. Hence the excitement !

Back in 2012, when I lived in Sydney, Australia, I sold my artwork through Etsy and my own website. In early 2013, I moved back to the U.S and I took a 2 year break from the online world of art , social media – except to keep in touch with friends and family.

Anyway, the artwork on my phone is from 2012 and is one of my favorites. The purple /mauve/plum background is acrylic paints and the leaves are digitally drawn. You’ll find it in my Society6 store that I had populated with some of my favorite designs back then.

While the iPhone case is pretty , I can’t say I have much of a future as a hand model !

Its National Donut Day, Y’all Ā and its a Friday … so we should basically pig out , right ?

Fact : I loved donuts.. until I realized it started to show on me :-/ So I work out everytime I think of eating donuts and don’t act on that craving .

But , nothing wrong in feasting your eyes on this donut … feast away , its zero calories Ā and Ā a whole lot of love with patterned sprinkles on it .
