creative tuesdays :: lil’ monsters


The theme at Creative Tuesdays caught my eye!

I don’t have a Lil’ Monster in the house anymore – she’s all grown up now.

In my picture, I drew a Mama monster giving the evil eye to her lil’ one for pointing. I can relate to this.

What mother hasn’t been embarrassed once or twice by their lil’ monster? I could write a novel!

lunchroom friends


For Sunday Sketches, I did this painting of friends enjoying their lunch break. It really reminded me of my old work group! A mix of vegetarians and meat eaters – just joking and having fun!

waiting for inspiration







This is how it’s been lately!! Just waiting for my Muse to show up!

As a side note, I accidentally scanned the first image as Grayscale instead of Color and decided I liked it better than the colors I had painted!

So…I finished the other doodles in the same way and added a touch of blue to each drawing. I love happy accidents!!

If you have a few minutes, please head on over to Sunday Sketches. See you there!

bird’s-eye view


Of a bird’s nest!


Looking out my studio window, sits a mother robin. She has built her nest in the crook of the rainspout on my neighbor’s house.

She was my inspiration for this painting. Although, I had to paint my little birdie blue…just for a pop of color!

goodnight kiss


Just a quick drawing of a mother kissing her sleeping angel at bedtime.


Now that my baby is all grown up, I sure miss that. It’s just not the same kissing a cat goodnight! You come away with a mouth full of cat hair!

birthday party



No, it’s not my birthday! I’ve just been working on some sketches with a family photo album feel to them.

When I was growing up, we didn’t take pictures very often. I have an album full of First Day of School, Christmas, Easter Sunday, and me with a Birthday Cake. Repeat this from age 1 through 18. There’s not much else in-between these occasions!

Very different to the way things are today! Although, I still don’t have many photos of myself, I do have about 500 photos of my pets!

april showers


Well, we don’t have rain here today…but I’m hoping any day now! I love a good spring shower.

Here is a drawing of what COULD happen on a rainy day…with a little imagination!

picture with grandma


I got the idea for this while browsing through old family photos. It was always an Easter tradition to:

a. Get a new Easter dress (or suit for my brothers),
b. Pose for countless photos in our new clothes,
c. Go to church, then to Grandma’s for ham and a big lunch,
d. And, finally, hide eggs with my brothers, sisters and cousins.

Now, we are all spread out over several states. My “little girl” is in her early 30s and my grandkids are too old to hide eggs anymore.

So, if you are lucky enough to have family nearby and little kiddos to hide eggs with…enjoy the day!


Be sure to stop by and check out other Sunday Sketches!

walking the dog


Spring is here…with a vengeance!

Any of you who have experience walking a strong, young dog on a windy day may relate to this picture!!


It sort of sums up my week ☺

Have a wonderful weekend!
