My Friday situation is good this week. I had a full week and it was good for my personal goals and my business goals.
I attended our local Greater Austin Black Chamber luncheon. The topic was The State of Black Business. I was able to re-connect with people and meet some new entrepreneurs. The rest of the week I did work on my business. I’m re-launching so I been working on sponsorships and just day to day operations. It ain’t easy!!!
But my fun was today. I use art as my self-care and this morning, I met a friend and we did our art projects. Believe it or not, my art is getting better. I have said it before, it does not look like three-year-old art :). It is so relaxing to sip on coffee, talk and let my creativity go wild. I am participating in the #WorldWatercolorMonth this month, so I was able to create some pieces for that.
I hope your week has been better. With all the continued tragedies around the country, to relax a bit and take care of myself and my mental space, art always does the job for me. I still pray for our country and people who are affected by the loss of their loved ones.What have you done for your self-care lately?
Have a great weekend see y’all next week.

Be Creative Every Day!
I’m writing this because I have whipped myself into a frustrated state. I have been on a art journey for the last two years. This morning I decided to sketch and I want to learn new things to draw besides flowers. I went on to google and put in the search “how to sketch a simple building” I do buildings but they are very kindergarten. I want to draw adult pictures.
I found a simple building but to save my life I could not see the shape visually to make it look close to the building. I wanted to cry. Still do. So I have taken a break and now I’m thinking what to do. I can’t afford classes so I got to make this happen myself. I know practice is the key but I could not see the building visually to practice.
Anyway I’m not giving up I was just surprise how much I worked myself up. What do you do when you get frustrated with something you are sketching or drawing?
Thanks for listening…

I love art and I like looking at other artist work. Yesterday I had the opportunity to attend a Art reception for Jane Cobb. She is a member of my Urban Sketchers group.
It was a nice reception showcasing her beautiful work. Jane featured her “colorful collage houses and more.” I enjoy the bright, vibrant colors she uses. She also does cute cards featuring pink pigs. They are so cute!
To learn more about Jane Cobb please visit her on Instagram @janecobb123. You will find her sketches on this pages. Thanks Jane for the invite. Janice Friesen (another Urban Sketcher member) and I enjoyed your work.
