Today’s prompt was “cake” – I present to you, a fourless chocolate cake. Hopefully, a nice escape from our on-going news. This is my favorite. I’d rather have a brownie, cookie, fruit tart or a pie over cake. What is your favorite dessert?

More Suburban Bliss

This house painting is of my childood home in Syosset, NY. I lived there from 1st grade through college. I loved going in to NYC and driving out to Jones Beach or Cold Spring Harbor. We had great pizza and bagels nearby. Lots of fun memories.

Suburban life

I had a lovely morning – I was able to go to our community pool and do laps before work. It was so refreshing to do this. I have a light work schedule and then book club this evening. Skys are clear. If feels like the idealic suburban life!

We will be discussing “The Tea Girl of Hummingbird Lane” – by Lisa See. I really enjoyed this book – it really captures the life of Akah minority in China and how their way of life changed so quickly during the Revolution era. I recommend this book!

new work

Art done in Procreate – I am learning more each day how to use this amazing art software. I have had MANY duds and I know that this is part of the process. I am happy with how this one came out.┬áSource Image by Tess Pixy256 from Pixabay

Hummingbirds bring me such joy. For a little bird, they are surprisingly loud. I love when they stop for a few sips in my hummingbird feeder. It gives me a brief moment of joy. I can only imagine the impact of our poor air quality on their systems.

It’s Seymour Time

More playing with Procreate! I just uploaded some new brushes and I cannot wait to give them a try. This Seymour painting was done with the original set. Although there’s a ton of brushes with the app purchase, I found that many are too specialized. I would like to move to a more illustration look. More exploring!

Rollerskates

More experimenting in Procreate. I am totally having fun with this app. My daughter just got herself a pair of rollerskates. I have the song “Brand New Key” stuck in my head. I LOVED that song back in the day. I hummed and sang that song when I put on my strap-on skates. I later advanced to real quads in a roller-rink. Lots of fun memories!
