A Letter for Tom

It has been way too long since I last wrote to my brother, Thomas, who is in Brazil. So today, I finally sat down and wrote to him-- just a short little note. I wish that I would have made the card bigger so I could have said more...

I didn't have a plan when I started. I just went crazy with the masking fluid and colors. I quite like the result. I hope Tom does, too.

I love quotes. I feel that for everything that I want to say, someone has already said it much more eloquently than I ever could. So, as usual, I wrote one of my favorite quotes that I thought Tom might find applicable to his life in Brazil:
"Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying 'I will try again tomorrow.'"
-Mary Anne Radmacher

Doodles from my Journal

I've been doodling for a couple of days now and I've really enjoyed it. It sure helps pass the time at work and I like to see what I come up with. Here are a few pictures from my art journal. They will all eventually be painted.

Art Journal: Dandelions

dandelion doodle:

This doodle was inspired by a dandelion I saw growing in the middle of a bunch of rocks. I was going to the hospital to visit my grandmother with my mom. On our way in, I saw the dandelion and asked my mom if she thought I should pick it for my grandma, as a joke, of course. She didn't think it was very funny, so I left the dandelion where it was.

I don't mind dandelions. I like the name and they're like little balls of sunshine. Plus, they give you wishes. It's hard for me to call them weeds.
