..here are some semi-random bits of art I’ve done recently.
Challenged myself to try out different styles of art to help me through a recent therapy break. [Hopefully I’ll write more about that break, soon.] I am always telling people [especially children] that anyone can draw – so whenever I decided to draw something I didn’t know if I could, I dedicated it to one of the kids in my life, because – really – how can I tell them that they can draw anything they want, if I hesitate to try new things myself?
So, good people, grab yourself a pencil or crayon or brush and do some art!
It’s good for the soul.

A seahorse – just to see if i could draw one

and wanted to let her sorrow out]
