Flower Power Pup

Hey everyone! I hope everyone had an amazing 4th of July. We were able to sneak away to see family in Wisconsin. We didn’t do too much, but it was a nice change of scenery. While we were there, I was able to work on some drawings during some downtime. We had our pup Moe along with us for our getaway. So he inspired this cute drawing of this flower power pup. I drew this using Procreate and it took me the longest time to figure out what color of background I wanted to use. I finally landed on the color purple. I feel like I do not use it enough. I just uploaded this cute flower power pup to my Society6 and Redbubble shops. It is available on prints and array of products. Enjoy!

Chill Out Popsicle

Summer is here and pool time with friends has begun. Since the pools around us are limited or closed, it has been nice to have a couple of friends over to swim. Our favorite summer past time is swimming and then having a popsicle on the deck. Popsicles always seem to taste better when it’s hot outside. Yummy! I chose to put the phrase “chill out” on the popsicle, because I feel like I have to say it all the time to my boys. I guess you can say it’s my summer motto….lol! I created and sketched this out using Procreate. This cool piece is now in my Society6 and Redbubble shops. Enjoy!

Create Beauty Everyday

Here’s a quick drawing that I did this past week while trying to decompress. Drawing definitely helps me relax and take my mind off of things. I find it’s even more important during the times that we are in. Any time I draw something, I try to create something that makes me happy and my version of beautiful. What kinds of beauty are you creating that makes you happy? I drew this digitally on my iPad in the program Procreate. I keep finding more and more things to learn about the program. I’m just soaking it all in! I hope this piece of artwork brings a smile to your face and sparks you to create new things!

Spring Mandala

Hey everyone! I hope you all had a great Easter! We had a great Easter with just our family of four. We dyed eggs, had an Easter egg hunt, opened basket goodies and devoured a delicious meal made by my husband. It was definitely different from previous years and I missed seeing all my family this past holiday. I can’t wait to gather with them again and celebrate. One saving grace is technology, I loved being able to Face time and Zoom with everyone. That has definitely helped during all this craziness. Here is another drawing that I did recently to help keep my mind off of things. It’s nothing too fancy, but I tried to keep the colors very true to Spring. I’m very pleased with how it turned out and it’s a beautiful spring mandala. Keep creating!

Dapper White Sheep

Hey everyone! Here is another easter themed drawing that I did within the past week during quarantine. I drew a very cute dapper white fluffy sheep. If you know me well, I love all things fluffy. But sheep really take the cake! I especially like the white sheep with cute black ears and face. I just love their contrast of black and white. I decided to make this sheep extra fluffy just to get his cuteness across. He was drawn out digitally using Procreate. I hope you all enjoy him!

Hip Hop Bunny

It’s the start of another week of quarantine for everyone. This will be week 4 for my family. It’s starting to feel like the movie Groundhog Day. It seems like the same events happen everyday. The time goes by really slow but night time comes so quickly. Like you have all the time in the world, but not enough time to get everything accomplished. I hope this whole mess will end soon. Easter is coming within the next week and I feel like I’m just not prepared and ready for it this year. I did manage to draw a couple of Easter themed quick pieces within the past week. Here is one the drawings that I managed to create during this quarantine chaos. It started with the bunny but I felt it needed some spunk and added the saying. And of course he needed a chain and sunglasses to match the attitude…lol! I hope everyone can stay positive during all this and hopefully this puts a smile on your face. Enjoy!

Be Kind

It’s Friday and the end to another week in quarantine. It’s been 3 weeks so far for my boys and myself. The boys finally got some online schooling this week which has lessened the load of homeschooling just a little bit. Also, the weather has been amazing and we have been trying to be outside as much as possible. Just trying to think of the positive stuff this week. I have also been trying to keep up with drawing as much as I can. Like I said before, it’s been really hard to get motivation to do so. I have been getting so tired of watching all the news and updates every day constantly. But I do enjoy all the stories of people helping one another out and being kind to one another. It’s nice for a change! So I drew this drawing from being inspired by all the stories that I have been hearing. I drew it digitally and just wanted a cheery spring drawing that is positive and will just make you smile. I hope this brings a smile to your face and encourages you to do something kind for someone else. Enjoy!

Homebody

Hey everyone! Are you a homebody? I am! I’m not ashamed to admit! On normal circumstances I enjoy being at home, having alone time to my self and like being in my own element. I guess you can say I’m an introverted extrovert. I love being around my friends and family but I tend to hit a wall and need to have space to myself to recharge. Anyone else like that? I will say that with this pandemic, I am getting a little stir crazy. I don’t know how much longer I can manage staying in my house and not start to hate it. I know I am not the only one! I did this quick drawing last night to help keep my sanity. I drew this cute happy pup in his house with the phrase homebody. He is definitely happy to stay home!  Keep calm everyone, stay safe and keep being creative!

Spring Boho Poodle

So how’s everyone doing? Needless to say I know everyone is under extra stress and have had major daily changes. This is week 2 of staying home for our family (minus my husband since he works at a hospital). I feel like we may be getting into a routine, but who knows how our new normal is going to be. I have been trying to stay positive and keep busy creating new artwork. Drawing tends to help me escape reality and by all means I need it right now. Here is one of the drawings that I have created recently. I love poodles and how fluffy they are. I definitely wanted to make it scream Spring, so I decided to include a flower crown. Hopefully everyone stays home, keep healthy and is able to find a new normal. Enjoy!

What’s Up Buttercup

Hey everyone! I know if you are anything like me this social distancing is wearing you down. I have been trying to keep somewhat of a schedule with my 2 boys, but I’m not going to lie it’s getting bored and slightly insane. I am usually one of those personality types that need to have alone time to decompress and stay sane. That has been thrown completely out the window due to my sons being home because school has been cancelled at least until the end of the year. So as of right now I’m hoping by keeping a routine in place and trying to stay creative with at least a drawing a day that I will survive this with out going crazy….lol! But in all seriousness, I hope everyone is staying healthy and socially distancing themselves, so this will end way sooner than later. I drew this piece to try to stay positive and as a distraction to all the news. I used Procreate to draw it digitally. I hope you enjoy it!
