doodles and raindrops...

I had the most relaxing half hour this morning... I dropped off my youngest at her Russian class and after running into a fabric store to get some thread I sat waiting in the parking lot and sketched. Her class takes place in a church that has quite a lovely garden even in the dead of winter. After sketching I still had time to kill so I remembered Nina's pictures of raindrops on her blog and got inspired to go take my own... Conveniently it's a dreary rainy day. Now my efforts cannot compare to Nina's artistry, but I enjoyed them anyway, hope you enjoy them too... Oh and I couldn't resist a picture of the moss covered stones of what is called the "Mother's circle"... lovely... PS in case anyone has noticed, I have made a little commitment to myself to do a blog post everyday in February, I figure it's only 29 days, hopefully I won't bore anyone to tears... I was inspired to do that by Alyson and her Artist Breakthrough program. Her blog post had plenty other stuff to do everyday in February, but I figured I can take my time with all others and just do one thing at a time....

Your doodle is very pretty; wish I could draw so well. I must also say that I also look forward to more photgraphs! These make a rainy day look lovely.

Thanks, Natalya! But the credit really has to go to Jennifer D. Anderson, who thought up the 28-day thing. I just thought it was brilliant and wanted to share. I'm glad you did, too.
