I haven’t done any new paintings this week since I’ve been sick with an upper respiratory infection—spring is in the air but my nose doesn’t seem to like it! But here is an older painting.

While doing a Google search about some art pencils today, I refined my search to blogs only and got a wealth of tips, techniques, and step-by-step instructions about the type I was researching. I love the art blogging community—I have found so many generous and nurturing individuals!

So, a big thank you to all you wonderful art bloggers out there—your helpful and sharing nature have lifted my spirits. I lift my tissue box to you!


  1. Thank you for your encouraging comments on my blog! Great to see another of your lovely pictures.I do hope your infection passes soon.

  2. Isn't it great! I also recommend highly finding all the art journaling magazines. They are wonderful.

  3. I hope you are better, after your illness. Respiratory infections are nothing to make fun with it.

    Yes, the Blogs are often a real treasure of resources for help and ideas. Love it too!

  4. You are very welcome, Alexi. I like what you are doing and where your art is leading you.

    Thanks for recommending “Art Journaling” magazines, Dawn.

    Thank you for your concern, Diana. In this city, it’s not unusual to get respiratory infections because of all the allergens in the air and because it doesn’t freeze much. I’m usually very healthy and allergies don’t bother me too much; went to the Dr. to confirm I don’t have an infection. But, I’m now so much better.
