It is a foggy day up here in the northern woods…A good day to play inside.
I’m a nester by nature….Even now, with the empty nest syndrome, I still need my nest(s).
I currently have a nest in my bedroom where I spend the day taking advantage of the big south facing windows and lots of natural light.
The two paintings shown are of Sarah by the sea…which is what I named it many years ago when I painted it back in 2005..(you can see the photo in the left bottom corner of the painting)…
I remember running out of blue paint for it, so I had to experiment with some other things in order to finish it..lol!
The other painting was done by me and Sarah back in 2002…It was a fun mother and daughter project…and my favorite painting of all!
In the evening I spend time with Jeff in my nest in the living room I usually stay here for a while after he goes to watch TV in bed. I’m not trying to avoid him or anything, its just that he likes to watch TV, and I usually don’t.
It is a good place to read or sketch while Jeff watches TV…This is also where we eat dinner together. We’re very comfy in our matching recliners…the couch only gets used when we have company over…I am always redecorating it..Jeff says it’s one of my works of art..lol!
Now I have a new nest in the camper…It is full of bears and wolves and even a moose or two…Lots of things to inspire some sketches on those camping nights or rainy days when we are unable to go exploring…(pictures coming soon)
I keep my sketching materials and my camera close by wherever I may nest…As I never know when the mood will strike…or when someone will strike a pose! :0
Both of our dogs are nesters too…Bud likes to stay in the bedroom 99% of the time while Sasha prefers to be alone in the hallway or the foyer….or outside on the back deck.
She actually gives us the stink eye if we try to call her in when she wants her alone time:
I suppose I ought to get busy cleaning the house.
Oh…and maybe I’d better give someBuddy a snack?
Thank you for dropping by…I hope you enjoyed my silly sketches…and they made you smile.
I have set the Lord always before me; because he is at my right hand, I shall not be shaken. Therefore my heart is glad, and my whole being rejoices;...
~Blessings & Love~ Lisa
