Ladies in blue

I have some very rudimentary ability to sketch presently I’m working on expressive , not realistic portraits I’ve seen them teferred to as representational portraits

I’m representing and this ain’t no Kardashian.


Sunrise, sunset

Sunset in Saint Louis county

I used my phone tonight. I was leaving with my camera accidentally made a setting change I could not figure out how to undo. So I left the camera and moved on. I left being frustrated behind

I suppose that’s what is called living in the moment.

Look at me

I’m officially out of the funk that prevented me from creating the past few years

Im inspired Enough so that I’m sharing things are evolving so will my art. It was pretty fulfilling in my past life It’s important to me now . My creative outlets have been limited to food and cosmetics. So creativity never left me.

Understand my life’s fights have tried to go for my bones. I’m in a new edition of life now and slowly but surely making the most of it


The sign of June

The Meeting

Look who I met . Hanging outside in the yard .  Nesting atop the electrical meter. I looked because I’d made note to self last time I was in the yard to take a broom to the ratty looking nest. The nest looks much better with her in it. I chose to leave her there.  That way I feel I can at least offer some protection from the thuggish cats in the neighbor hood

Just short two weeks since I initiated this post. I call her Byrdie. Not very creative name but I check daily to see if she’s still there. Women have it hard. We must persist

My work for women kind.

Mission taco joint

I stopped at mission taco on a whim for a fast lunch  with a friend mid week. Not everyone is retired and can be leisurely At mid day.  I quite enjoyed it, the prices were very reasonable and the flavors were fantastic.  You can experience a lot of variety in just a few street size tacos .


Yes I’ve heard the various jokes about the falafel guy. I don’t have much of a track record outside of Italian, creole  and French foods. My daughter loves falafel I glanced at a  recipe, my response was this seems doable plus the ingredients list was a lot of good stuff. Herbs cumin garlic onions, garlic, and garbanzo beans.  Sounded good for me.

Learning something new. It’s a good thing.

Oh spring!

strange things

I ran across a promo video for UGGS that cracks me up
So what do you think?

She was warned

She was warned. She was given and explanation. Never the less she persisted.

Now if this was s smallchil they’d get a time out.  Elizabeth Warren is no small child 

We must all persist
