Today is.... ink and pencil

the day brings tranquil breezes
with blue, aqua skies

she is waiting, resting
patience developing

with a knowing glance
she realizes...

today is

What is today for you? ..................  (fill in the blank!)

I am loving being a part of Art Every Day month...
Getting back into the studio daily has been a challenge... especially at this time of year
the end of the school year fast approaches, 
and the social calendar gets booked up in advance!
Christmas sneaks up on me every year, and I'd like to be organised as I know Christmas is coming, whether I'm ready for it or not
So far the plans include lots of pudding, and tea, and maybe, just maybe 
a Turkey on the barbie too!

Hope your Christmas preparations are starting to happen :-)

When you have a spare minute, and a fresh cuppa made,
head over to Paint Party Friday where I will be the featured artist this week
big shout out to Kristin and Eva for hosting this great get together every week ...xo
