Hello, my friends!

I am so excited.  I had a birthday two days ago.  Usually, birthday’s are okay but nothing special.  I am not a tiny person so I don’t like many clothes.  We are on a budget so extravagant gifts don’t interest me.  Most of the time I don’t get anything too special.  This birthday was so simple but wonderful.  My husband has been so supportive of my going back into art and writing.  As you can see, I am slowly building an art and writing collections.  My husband talked with me extensively about what I needed to accomplish it.  Then knowing that we could not buy all the markers that I needed from on brand, he asked me what other alternative brands I would want.  He bought me an 80-piece set of those markers and behind the scenes bought me a small set of the great markers to start off my great collection.  What a thoughtful man.  So, here is a picture of the bouquet of markers he got me.

Isn’t it beautiful? It is a mix of Ohuhu markers, Copic skin colored markers (the great collection) and Copic blender markers.

That’s the gift.  Here is my gift to y’all.  I hope it is a gift.  This is my first drawing in marker with blending.

Does that bring a smile to your face?  I hope so.  Can’t you just imagine a child wanting a lollipop that big?  And the dog helping himself to what he can.   I loved how the image turned out.  I know it isn’t perfect.  It was the first time I used some of my skills.

Here is the newest news.  Starting Monday, my daughter and I are taking courses at a professional art school.  We are absolutely excited. Time to shine and step up to something wonderful.

Back to the drawing. At first, I did not like it. Therefore, I redrew it in and colored it in colored pencil.  Here is the result of that.



A little bit of difference.  What do you think? Which on do you like the most?   

Well, that is it for today.  Have a good day, my friend.
