Who would have thought that I would redesign my website TWICE in 2014?! Not me.
But, I have been craving clean and simple, so I want my site to be easy on the eyes AND the brain..
I actually get the jitters on most blogs and websites, and I don’t want folks to feel that way when they visit my site.
Two exciting headings have been added: Art Journal and Gallery.
Neither of those links work right now because they are not finished. One will lead to my Santa Fe Gallery and the other to a collection of my journal and sketchbook pages – just for fun and inspiration.
All workbooks have been grouped under the Art Books heading, and Workshops have their own page. This should make things less confusing.
If you have a moment, I would really appreciate you giving the new site a run through because there is no better way for me to find links and things that don’t work.
Remember, we already know that “Art Journal” and “Gallery” links do not work yet.
Please let me know what you think.
Now, what about the Fashion Footwear?
I know you are all aware of my passion for fancy shoes, but this is really more about the ankle thing.
Everybody at both the Santa Fe and Manitou Springs Retreats watched me limp around for the duration – a pitiful sight indeed.
And that is a long span of time! This ankle hasn’t wanted to heal for two and a half months now.
One of the gals in Manitou is a retired nurse and she let me know that it never would heal unless I gave it some kind of support.
I guess flip flops don’t provide ankle support. Who knew?
So I got this . . .The pieces of leaf and possible Husky hair were not part of the original design – I added those inadvertently.
But, I feel like I’m really stylin” because this brace goes so well with my flip-flops.
And more importantly, I guess, it’s working. My ankle is actually starting to heal and I am much less gimpy already.
This lovely ankle-wear can be found on Amazon for only $12, in case any of you are jealous and want to look this cool.
And, while sitting with the ankle elevated on a pillow, I decided to do a SIMPLE sketch of one of my flower beds.
I mean to sketch my flower beds every year and never get around to it, and every Spring, I have no idea what is where.
Actually, I never have any idea what is where, but a girl can dream.
So, I started my simple sketch, and something got ahold of me – some detail devil fairy or something . . .
Who in their right mind would commit to such detail? Not me. I must have been possessed.
And now, I have to add color to all that!
LAST CHANCE . . .
To learn to draw like this for very little money. The Sketch Journal One and Two Sale ends at midnight tonight. Even if you don’t have time to work on the lessons now, you can get the savings and work through them at any pace that suits you – Whenever . . .Whatever, That’s our philosophy, right?
And, actually, by the end of Sketch Journal Two, you WOULD be able to draw the sketch above. You too could be possessed by a devil fairy!
Speaking of devils and fairies, reminds me that it is Halloween. Boo!
And Happy Anniversary to me. 25 years with the same guy! What?
Must be the fashion footwear that keeps him around.
