Art as I work

As you know my day job is being a pediatric speech language pathologist. Sometimes I just have to work my art into my speech therapy or I never seem to have time for it.
This girl was working on /f/ sounds so we made a fish with a face and fins and flowers out of playdough!!

sketching on the plane

On the way back from Austin, I decided to do a simple pencil sketch of the dog I will be painting, just to get a feel for the face. I am a little self-conscious drawing in public.....people always watch and make do you feel about it?

Hi! I'm back from Spring Break!!

I am so sorry that I have been lost for a couple of weeks. I went to visit my best friend from childhood, Dawnetta in Austin. I hadn't seen her in 7 years. The kids were so big!! Anyway, I had a great time and hopefully, I will start posting my art regularly now. I am working on a portrait of a friend's dog that died recently and I plan to have the steps of the project posted here shortly.
I missed all of you!!
