Easy Street?

After all that cleaning, I wondered, Where the heck is Easy Street? Can anyone point the way?


Yes, I did all of these things in one day! Laundry, ironing, mopping, making a healthy dinner - Very tired at the end of the day, but it was a good tired. Is that an oxymoron - good tired? :-)

2011 0922 Indianapolis

I went to a work conference in Indianapolis, with only 2 nights there. What a lovely city! Had I known, I could have spent at least an extra day there to enjoy the sites!
Had a half hour to do this from my hotel room before leaving.

Mountain of rubble

Well, bless the sanitation workers & everyone else that worked on cleaning up the mountains of trash.  So sad, seeing personal items in this heap.  The pile ended up almost twice as high before they were able to haul it to the dump.  How do I know?  This is directly across the street from our workplace.  Quite a strong smell!

2011 Flood

"The world breaks everyone - and afterward many are stronger at the broken places." - Hemingway
This is drawn from a photo taken the first day we were working to clean up after the recent flooding.

Was just waiting for the right time to try brush and ink.  This is a silk flower I've had for years. (had to clean the cobwebs off!)
Not sure how I feel about the thick ink lines, but it was fun to try for a change! A bright spot in a not-so-bright weekend!

Blue Mist

An old watercolor that expresses my emotions right now.  Epic flooding in our area and the entire northeast.  Not my home, but my place of business - over 5 ft. and maybe more to to come. So many have lost their homes in this tremendous flood.  Thank you for keeping us in your thoughts!

Artistic License

Available to all artists, if needed, to draw and paint as you wish, not how things really are!
And to bring a smile and remind us that art can be fun!

Mike S 50th birthday

My friend's boyfriend will celebrate his 50th birthday soon, and she asked me to do a sketch of him as a gift. I hope he likes it!

JC Field Days

Sept. 9, 2011 - The calm before the storm.  All the rides were unloaded from the trucks, but not put together yet.  Lots of bright colors!
I was imagining the screams of delight once the rides open!
