Hug A Bug...

Or a tree... 

Or a cat...if you prefer.
Haven't had much time to do anything other than doodle but I am keeping the pencil lead sharpened and this chipper gal keeps popping up in my sketchbook.
Hope to be back in the studio this weekend...now that all the bits and bobs are hooked back up and put back into place.
Can't wait to incorporate elements of these two techniques into my process:

I won't go into the details...but I am stuck...been stuck...trying to become unstuck.  Ever get that way in life? Creatively?  How do you become unstuck w/out becoming unglued?

Still sorting out this one...Dad's arm needs to move, need to add a moustache, I don't like how the bed blends into his pants and the negative/white space is driving me batty.

Spring Break 2013

Is over... :(
I did a lot of this...

Spring cleaning and repainting rooms that haven't been retouched in 11 years.  Phew.  2 more big rooms to go and lots and lots of trim work.  But I figure it's better to get it all done this Spring so that I can devote the summer to doing lots and lots of this...

Oh...and remember when I said my daughter won Regional Gold in the Scholastic Art and Writing Contest????  WELL, she went on to win a NATIONAL GOLD MEDAL!!!!! Thanks to my loving parents we will be able to see her receive her award at Carnegie Hall later this Spring.
