Happy Valentine's Day

Hello and Happy Vday!

Speaking of Valentine's Day, one of my favorite things to draw lately is couples, sometimes humans and sometimes animals. I just love the idea of cute little traits that couples have coming out in a drawing, whether they are similar or opposite I think that's part of the fun.
As a said in my first post, I'm trying to spend more time doing the things that I enjoy, and over this past year I wanted to connect back to something creative that had tangible instant results, so I began to draw.
To my surprise my creative mascot of sorts became an owl, something that I know is so trendy both in the craft and fashion world. I think I just wanted to put my own spin on it, kind of rebel against the mainstream trendy owl. I realized as my doodling became more frequent that I really enjoy drawing birds they can be goofy, sarcastic, and beautiful.....anyway I hope to share more of my drawings soon I am in the tweaking process now.
One of my favorites


pretty little peacock


Who doesn't love an owl with a scarf ?


Another thing I want to talk about is Midnight in Paris.....the Woody Allen movie that is nominated for Best Picture. I am trying to see all the Best Picture movies before the Oscars at the end of February.
Now I'm not a big Woody fan but I thought I'd give it a shot because I like Owen Wilson and Rachel McAdams.  I was pleasantly surprised :) I really liked it and it really got me thinking about how everyone probably thinks from time to time that things were better in the past....more simple, more creative, more exciting, etc.  It also got me really excited to visit Paris again and then I saw this commercial!

YAY for spring colors and hot air balloons!

I love owls with scarves! :) Also I am really ready for summer but yesterday the humidity here was 90% UGH. I can't even imagine trying to wear work-appropriate stuff in the summer when it's like that. Looks like dresses every day.

Floral Print Excitement

I'm not much of a girly girl but I am sucker for a floral print. Most of my favorite clothes have some kind of floral or abstract patter...
