Day 331: Purple

Trying hard to do these pieces early in the day for at least the next 2 weeks.   Just makes it easier to tackle the day's to-do lists if I get it done early, that way I don't have it looming over my shoulder and almost run out of time to do one!   Blah, blah ramble blah!  : )
Peace and fabulousness!

BTW Stye is saying bye bye!

Day 330: Purple

Did this pen and ink while working the pro presenter at church this morning.  Don't know where these two critters came from, but I like 'em!

Did a pen and ink.

Day 326: Purple

Decided to get my piece done early again today.  Wednesday's are usually a day where I have extra time during the day to get stuff done.  So that's my goal!
Another bubble theme today with pen and ink.
Peace and fabulousness.

Day 325: Purple

Day 323.  I love cool number combinations like waking up at 5:55 for work or 12:34. This morning I'm doing my piece before school, so I can focus on catching up today.  OOOPS That was 2 days ago!  My numbers are off!
A pen and ink around bubbles!
Peace and fabulousness!

Day 324: Purple

Mondays!  Pushed the day to the limit and almost ran out of time to do today's piece!  Until all these set pieces are done for the Christmas program and I am caught up at work, I fear my purple pieces are going to be a bit simple.  Sorry!
Peace and fabulousness!

Day 322: Purple

Saturday's are awesome.  Feel like I drifted through the day, reflecting on some changes and realizing how those changes are for the best.
Did a flower with paper today.
Peace and Fabulousness

Day 323: Purple

Such a gorgeous day out side!  After church, lunch and a few errands, spent time outside raking, planting bulbs and putting a few more of my gardens to bed.  Felt nice to be out in the warm fall air.
After spending several hours painting sets, I did a really simple pen and ink.  Beginning to be grateful that this is a month and a half away from completion!
Peace and Fabulousness.

Day 321: Purple

Beginning of the day started off strong and uplifting.  Our student exchange with our sister school was busy but went so smoothly! Doing art with 205 4-6 th graders was quite fun, but after I finished and got to class, found out David o. Brown died.  He was creative, fun, and positive with a great smile.  RIP David
Today's paper is dedicated to him.
Peace and fabulousness

Day 320: Purple

Busy day (imagine that) with a bit of worrisome news about a friend.  Thus the pen and ink I did today.
On a lighter note, operation change is progressing rather nicely.
Peace and fabulousness.

Day 319: Purple

UGH!!! one of those days that no matter how much I got done,  I felt further and further behind!! Trying to get ready for Friday, take care of additional work related paper work, grade the posters for the contest and get going on the props and sets for the Christmas program on top of normal art classroom teaching and such.  Haven't even started critiquing and photographing other student art projects for Artsonia.  Breath, breath, breath.
Did a really simple pen and ink, because it was almost bed time when I realized I hadn't done one!
Peace and fabulousness.

Day 318: Purple

I am so tired!  Couldn't get to sleep last night, but on the upside, my brain figured out what to do with the 4 - 6 graders that are visiting our school on Friday!  Had a partial plan before , but now it is all figured out!  Glad I got up and recorded each new idea, since I usually don't and end up with morning of "d'oh! I don't remember!"
Volunteering later to collect shoe boxes for Operation Christmas Child and then possibly to the gym.
Peace and Fabulousness.
Best part of this piece was sitting with 2 5th graders and discussing life and books.

Day 317: Purple

The day that begins a long series of business ('til mid January) has begun, a bit slowly as I still don't feel at 100%.  I did go to the gym for a bit as a I thought something I volunteered for was today.  It's actually for tomorrow!  It's all good.  All part of the new direction.
Took some random purple triangles today and made this piece.  yay! lol
Peace and fabulousness!

Day 313: Purple

Purple is still eluding me as is my muse.  Feel like I'm still in a cocoon of avoidance and self preservation.  Tomorrow, I plan to start breaking out.
Peace and Fabulousness!

Day 312: Purple

Full day of teaching, but it was a great day of teaching.  Almost everyone including me, seemed engaged and creative.  That feeling of "normalcy" may be coming back.  Unfortunately that motivated feeling didn't make it past the front door tonight.   Today's piece ended up being adding a bit of purple to a started project with a bit of left over blue paper. Can feel change coming, so yeah!

Day 311: Purple

Can hardly handle the anticipation for tonight's election to be over!!! The ads, the millions spent, all for this.  I did vote.
Did a pen and ink fitting for today.
Peace and fabulousness.
Having trouble getting good photo of my purple projects. Purple doesn't come across in its' true purpleness. hmmmm

Day 310: Purple

Hoping this will be a more "normal" week at school.  The students were a bit hyped, but as is expected with last week's stuff and tomorrow night's elections.
Added a purple mouse to a leftover blue watercolor piece.

In a fog today.  Doing another pen and ink before David O. Brown's fundraiser and the MADONNA concert.
Peace and fabulousness

Day 307 : Purple

Today we held a school memorial service for Peter. So powerful, sad, and beautiful.  Nothing rips at the heart more than seeing grieving children.
I thought I was going to have to send my camera in for repairs but thanks to a great repair guy who looked at 3 minutes before close, it is now working!
So tired tonight, just did a pen and ink.

Day 306: Purple!

Wow into the home stretch with the last of this year's colors: PURPLE!  This should prove to be interesting.  Was asking the kindergarteners for suggestions, but yeah, they were not much help.
So I kept it simple tonight and did a pen and ink flower.
Peace and fabulousness!
No photo today due to my new camera not working ...grrrrrrrrr!
