Pen and Ink...and maybe some paint

What I'm up to...

I really have been doing some art the last few days though it hasn't shown up here. In my blog list you'll see a new face called "Somewhere to Sketch".  This is a group of "artists" (I always feel funny calling myself that) of various skill levels. Every two weeks a location is assigned somewhere in the world. We visit that location via Google's Street View maps and sketch anything that tickles our fancy. We then share our art with the group on the blog. Below are the paintings/sketches I've done thus far:

Barnstaple UK

A synagogue in Sderot, Israel

San Anselmo, CA
We also post the screen shot that we did the painting from.

I also finished up some sunflower ATC's which I mailed to London day before yesterday.

I'm looking forward to the next four days off work. Babysitting, reading, artsy pursuits and maybe tying up some loose ends...that need tying up!
Counting my many blessings at the beginning of this new year! You, dear readers, are among them. :)


  1. All very pretty, Lisa! I really like your sunflowers, but all the pieces are very fine. I like your paintings better than the originals, for sure! Blessings to you, friend, in this new year. May you find great joy.

  2. Happy New Year, Lisa! That's a wonderful way to find something to sketch. I love your synagogue sketch!

  3. My, you have been busy!!
    Lovely to read your comment on my old blog, and to know that this is the place to find you in future :)
    May your 2014 be filled throughout with such fun, relaxing moments x


Thanks for dropping by! I'd love to hear your thoughts! :)
