Wow ... I've been gone for about a month. I just had a lot of things going on and some distractions, like getting a new computer and getting used to the new operating system--plus navigating things from my old computer to the new one. It's an all-in-one desktop computer. I really love it. The screen is 23" ... huge!

I  have a canvas in the works, but I only have my first layer on it. I have to come up with an idea of what to do next, but sometimes it is slow in coming. I'll show it to you when it's finished.

In the meantime, a good way to keep your hand in the creative game is to doodle. You never know where your doodle art will lead, like this page in my art journal:

I had just taken a workshop on lettering from Julie Fei-Fan Balzer ( I did the letters first, then connected them in alphabetical order. Then I colored it with gel pens and Sharpies. I started it on my husband's birthday, as you can see. It was a lot of fun, as most of my unplanned stuff usually is.
I have another piece of doodle art to show you, but I can' figure out how to load new photos using my digital camera ... so it will have to wait for now.
There is something very new ... I have seven pieces of my art (like shadow boxes, etc.) in a gift shop for sale. The store is in Vineland, New Jersey and is called Robin Hope Designs Presents: The Sky's The Limit. It's on Landis Avenue in the Amish Market. You can find Robin on Facebook. It's like a little mall. So that's exciting for me!
Now, I just have to figure out how to put a watermark on my photos to show ownership of the art. I'm trusting that readers will respect the fact that I'm the creator of the art on this blog. And I thank you for that!
Until next time ... have an artful adventure!
