My Doodling Journal
 
 I press every flower petal I can find in a very large and old wine book
about the wines of the world. It is heavy and really does the job well.


Sorry about the dark spots. This is in my Doddle Journal on the tan paper.
I have not figured out the correct way to take pictures of the pages, yet.
We think the top leaf is from an elm from all the trees at back of house. 
Bud and I think the second one comes  from one of our maple trees. 
The dark spots looking greenish/blue spots and are here and there all over the leaf.
As you can seem it also has a hole in it.


This is the first time I have ever tried to sketch  mandala freehand
so please excuse the wavy lines. It was the best I could do.

8-18-16 ~ The Hay Has Been Baled

Being from the ocean and Florida, seeing the field with the hay rolled into bales is a site I adore. The funnest one is getting behind the SLOW moving truck taking the bales to the right fields where they are needed. These fields are on the road to my home.

8-15-16 ~ It's Sunday and Time for Another Rockbridge County Barn

Come and Join Us over at Tom's Barn Collective.




This is a working farm not far from us which has been here for years and years. 
Nothing has changed. 
I am assuming it is still in the same family.

8-12-16 ~ My Week in Art ~ Genie Robinson

My Etegami This Week



My Stippling This Week



First I sketched from a photo I had taken a picture of North Mountain popping up its head threw a bobbed wire stretched fencing and power lines. I do not like in general the way it turns out, but I love my fencing.That top piece was really curved and way up above the rest. Maybe a larger animal stretched it trying to jump to freedom.


 Just for Fun

Oh, how i miss my quilting, but my sitting with my back does not allow it.
Last week I saw where one of our bloggers (I cannot remember who...I'betting old) but it immediately reminded me of just how addicted I am to Hershey bars...DAY and NIGHT ( I always eat one before I go to bed) ...and MIDDLE OF NIGHT. I know they are bad for me especially at night considering the sugar on my teeth,  my digestion cycle , and sleep, but I still wake up and head for the fridge (they get soft here from the hot weather) tiptoeing TRYING to be quiet so Buddy does not hear me...hehehe.  That is so silly. He always hears me and knows what I am up to :=-)


 Doodling
One night I was thinking about my quilt and the beautiful vintage silk one my DIL gave to me, I decided to try creating a Doodle Quilt. This was so much fun.

 While walking I saw many, many Passion Flowers on the trail. They are very prolific at this time of year. I had never seen them before so I took some pictures and then came home and had a bit of doodling fun with it. The most fun was adding color though the petals on Passion Flowers here is usually blue or lavender.

Last but not least, I have joined a group called 365 Days of Spirit Art sponsored by Nancy Baumiller.
This group is not for experienced artists in all sorts of medium, a beginner is welcomed. You can join in at any time. Nancy has created a Face Book page for all of our contributions:
Art2Hearts. I have only made Pages 1and 2, but it is a start.

8-10-16 ~ Happy Finches

It Is Wild Bird Wednesday Again

 This little finch makes me think of a penguin.
That is quite the split it is doing!

It is such fun to be a little finch when Mom feeds us in our play yard.

8-8-26 ~ A Walk up on the Blue Ridge Parkway

Sunday I drove a hiker up to Thunder Ridge on the Blue Ridge Parkway to make a day hike. After I let her off (about 7:30 AM) , I couldn't resist taking the 10 minute scenic walk. Boy, was I surprised at the views. It was like I was flying above the clouds at times and at other times the clouds looks like a frozen lake.






Well, I know what this is!!!!
I watched for this nasty stuff with every step. 
Now that mine is finally healing, I definitely do not want any more.

There were lots of huge rocks as well as the beautiful view on my little walk.
