faces {private lesson}

it is really about pushing outside of the comfort zone.

create interest.
pencil. pen. paint.
push and pull of dry to wet and back again.
nobody is perfect.
less detail. more imagination.
always about the color.
black. white. balance.
outside comfort zone.

push & pull {second one}

this was the second card yesterday. the first one.....yikes- just needs to be thrown away. seriously.

i can't decide if i just was in a funk, or if overall, i was just off due to the nature of the day. our last child graduated and as we were sitting in the gym, i was thinking how only 5 years earlier we sat in the same gym with our oldest graduating. we will be empty-nesters and although i am excited to be at this point, i felt emotional last silly. our kids all have a plan, but, now what the heck do we do? we have lived where we live in the past due to our work and kids. now my husband doesn't work close to here and the kids have all if the good Lord is speaking to me, he needs to speak louder- apparently my hearing isn't as good as it was.
