Happy Distraction

Yellow’s my favorite color, and flowers make me happy.

I was using this vase of flowers to prop up my phone at the kitchen table, as I doodled pictures from past adventures. Leaning back to take a break (well, honestly to internally fuss that my husband was still using the computer when I wanted to blog), I noticed how pretty this simple arrangement was.

So I drew them with a pen and colored pencils. Ta da… That was nice.

    As the artistic nature tends to have talent in more than one area, you are a wonderful writer also. Love reading your musings!

      Thank you so much, Susan, for that very kind compliment. I’m a pretty quiet person, and have always enjoyed expressing my thoughts carefully and thoughtfully in writing. It is a great release, and I appreciate your encouragement! 🙂

  2. Yellow is my favorite color too, but even if it wasn’t, I would still love this drawing.
