Still not painting

I don't know what it is, but I just Don't.Feel.Like.Painting. I look at my painting, I look at my brushes, I think of the lessons in Fonda's workshop I still want to try, and .... nothing. I can't bring myself to do it. It feels like so much hassle. Really weird. I hope this is just a passing phase, and that it'll pass real quick!

In the meantime, I'm drawing. I got out my alcohol-markers again. This one is not finished, I want to put text around her and I have some ideas in my head, but I'm not sure how and what yet. So for now I'll just post her like she is now:

And I did another sketch. I want to make one every week this year, although I already missed the first week. So I'll have to make one extra some time. But I like sketching again, and it only requires a sketchbook and my pencil-case. Less hassle than painting ;-)

And that's it for this week! I'm not being very productive at the moment, guess I'm still a bit in holiday mood :-)

So it's time for the funnies:

and the other ones ...

Linking this to Paint Party Friday. Thanks for your visit and your comments! Really appreciate it :-)

Hope you're having a great day! I'll be back next week ♥ ♥ ♥

Happy New Year

Happy 2018 to all my blog-readers! Wishing you a year filled with creativity, fun and contentment!

The holidays have been really hectic, and I didn't get much art done. I did little things here and there, but nothing major. Didn't touch my painting ...

But I did make a journal page, and a sketch :-)

Here's the start of my journal page:

Leftover paints scraped and stamped on there, a looong time ago .... And yes, I saw two blobs which resembled (in my eyes) faces

So I brought them out

and painted them in

added some highlights to lighten it all up, and my first journal page of the new year was finished :-)
I hope it's the start of many more!

I also started sketching again. I really need to practice more, and I always tend to forget how much I love sketching ...

My sketching skills are getting a bit rusty. So one of my intentions for this year is to make one sketch a week for the whole year. Hmmm. I really wonder whether I'll manage that. But I'll certainly try!

I haven't been on the internet much in the last couple of weeks, and I intend to keep it that way. But I'm looking forward to catching up with everyone at Paint Party Friday.

And one thing I intend to keep on doing in this brandnew year is keep sharing funny and not-so-funny pictures. Everyone needs a good laugh now and then, as well as a good think, don't you think so?

So here goes :-)

And the ones to think about ...

Me, hubby and our two kids started doing this! Every Sunday evening at dinner we each write down something that we enjoyed that week and put it in a jar. It's fun!

Okay, that's it for now. It's almost midnight and I need to get up early, so it's off to bed.
Thanks for your visit! Enjoy your day and have a wonderful weekend!
I'll be back next week ♥ ♥ ♥
