this art + behold

spring floral sketches : strawberries

hello there. the other day heather posted this on her flickr ... hey did you know i make art? it's true. i feel the same way. not sure why. but it feels like i haven't talked about or posted any art "for reals" in a while. i'm not feeling really chatty, but i can show you some stuff i've been up to.

i was a bit apprehensive about showing them. but then sheri and shari were so nice about them. thanks ladies. i'm honored to amongst a list of such inspiring folks.

i also decided to put them up on the beholder . i did a bit of cleaning up around there too. old sold stuff gone.... more changes to come hopefully in the next few weeks.

I love the drawings! Thanks for sharing them.

I KNOW your grandma would be pleased that you are thinking of her and the contributions she made to your life everyday. I can see why you would miss her. But I hope you also count yourself very blessed to have had such a grandmother in your life.

Must pop across to see your work on this joy+ride... I've been out of the loop of late and am slowly catching up, like many, like always. The month of May is just so busy, no?
