Exciting things ahead

My sweet boyfriend gave me a gift certificate to get my laptop, aka, my baby fixed. Only needs a new battery. It's my Mac book pro tho. So I have to go to the Apple Store for them to replace it. I've been in the waiting list for a month to get an appt to get my baby fixed. Super excited that in a little over a week I will have my design capabilities back at my finger tips. :) whoo hoo. 

I have a ton of conceptual drawings done, notebooks and sketchbooks filled with ideas. Been focusing on developing different art skills while my baby has been dead. (Aka my MacBook Pro)

I'm pretty sure I shared this little watercolor from last week.  But didn't want to leave you with no eye candy. ;) 


Received my January studio calico card kit. So look for new cards to come soon. 

Thanks for stopping by and many blessings!

Watercolor

Been doing some watercolor painting today. Always soothe my soul to slosh paint on paper and see where it takes us.   Hope you enjoy. 

Made for a sweet friend who created lovely art for my boyfriend. He loves spider-man. 



This one is by far my all time current favorite watercolor. He's firece.


A fun cartoony Cardinal. 


A fun winter chickadee.


A a red robin in winter...

Hope you enjoy. Thanks for stopping by.

This years word & focus

With the new year I wanted to choose a word that I would focus on in the new year. 

Trust: 
  1. firm belief in the reliability, truth, ability, or strength of someone or something.
    "relations have to be built on trust"
    synonyms:confidencebelieffaithcertaintyassuranceconvictioncredence
    "good relationships are built on trust"
  2. I want to have a renewed trust in the people around me, my god, and in myself. My art, choices, and faith. 
    I have been blessed with the most wonderful, loving, kind, patient, most handsome boyfriend alive. I have been blessed with my kids and family. 
    I have been blessed with my walk with God and want to have a deeper, stronger relationship with him then ever before. I want to grow in my love for him and bless those around me. I want to keep my focus on what is real and important not on my past. I've learned focusing on the things like fears and my past only cause anxiety and strife in my relationships. 
    I have been blessed with a wonderful family, boyfriend, and church family who love me and want the best for me. 
    So with my word chosen for this year and my heart at peace I was able to take some time to create and paint. 

    This picture by far is my favorite. 

    I have more pictures to share soon. Thanks for stopping by.

    Blessings,
    Mary
