While waiting for the bus for 30 min in the rain I had these ideas...
Especially the first one.

Day 262

Flowing
I love this new app. Problem is I am not used to it. I was in the middle of a big drawing and I
accidentally pressed a button.... it was GONE!

Day 261

Today as I was watching the Emmys i was fooling around on the ipad I am babysitting with all the new apps I downloaded. I find that the Artisan Paint lite is awesome and am considering getting the full version (now on sale). Here are some of today's creations:

Day 254

It's been 10 years since that tragic day. I think all of our faith was shaken and innocence was erased. But like the Phoenix, we rose from the ashes and hopefully we have learned from that experience.
It was a wonderful experience to see survivors and family members of those who didn't, move on to the next step of their lives.The memorial was beautiful, the city of NY did a wonderful job.
After such an emotional day, that was the end of a very emotional week I decided to take some time in between cooking to make some adjustment in some goals. The biggest obstacle right now Is myself and not letting go. Not letting go of the past, of situations, of the weight, of the burden, of guilt, of poor thinking. And that stops here.
Erasing the past
Starting fresh. Letting go and letting God. And just trusting that all will be just fine.
And I know it will.

Day 251

Following a very difficult emotional evening from yesterday came a morning where the weather and public transportation interfered too... the sky was grey and moody all day and it was a total reflection of how I was feeling. I didn't make it into work because the bus never showed up and barely missed the downpour.  The sky was the inspiration for my painting
sunrise




sunset (facing east)




A reflection of my emotions
 
I used watercolor pencils today. for a deeper effect. I am glad that the weekend is only one day away.

Day 250

Woke up early today and after exercising I was inspired to paint. After it was done I looked at it and said, interesting.
Happy / Sad
Didn't think much of it.. until this evening, when people that I considered friends hurt me by lying. I guess they really aren't friends right?  So my painting basically predicted my emotional roller coaster.

Day 249

It was a miserable day, overcast and rainy. Since I am pretty new to  riding a bus I totally forgot that the schedule might be changing  around labor day... so I ended up waiting in the rain and cold (yes I said cold)  both times. Ugh.. now i know better.
So today I decided to paint a dragonfly to brighten  my evening.
Water color and Ink.

Day 247 Testing out things

I have been blessed with the best friends ever. When my lap top died one lent me her laptop to use, which is why I could continue to post here  and one lent me her ipad because I act like a kid around electronics LOL.  Today I kept on drawing on drawing box and not feeling it. Finally I got something I was happy with. What I don't like about the ipad is that there is really no way I can have total control over the finer details as even the stylus has a thicker  point, unlike my wacom tablet (I know I am way behind times on that ). Anyway it was still fun figuring things out.

Day 246

Lots of running around today but squeezed in a couple of  quickies.



It looks like my hand likes drawing dragonflies ever since I saw that bush filled with them at assateague park.
