So Long, Farewell and Good Bye

Here we are at the ending of 2011.   Seems like just yesterday I received an email about making resolutions for 2011.  I don't know about you but that seems like a total waste of time to me.  I cannot think of one person that makes them and keeps them.  So out the door RESOLUTIONS, one more thing I don't have to do or worry about.  I never made them anyway.

  Just enjoy the moment and go on with your life the best you can and I bet it will certainly be less stress.  Well this is not a dyed in the wool promise but hey it can't hurt a thing to think that way.   A large part of the time we cannot predict what will happen in life anyway.   Now GOALS are a different thing I do believe, write those little critters down, put the piece of paper away.  You know a place that you totally forget where you put it and when you find it------TA DA- most of your goals have been accomplished and you didn't have to stress over it.   Be sure and sign it and date it.  You don't know how many times I and hubby have done that and then discovered that the goals have been met.  We just high five each other and usually make another sheet of goals.  Humm I wonder where the last list is?   It will turn up when I am not looking for it, I know.  So onward and upward we will all go together for 2012.

Art and things related to it are in my life big time right now and as you know ART does HEAl.  I think I have said that before. but it is ok to repeat myself it is my blog and I love doing it for you.  

Here is a few Mandalas  I have done the last few days.   Some are with watercolor pencils, watercolor crayons and  a combo with real watercolors.   You know like in a tube?   I have very few of those but all together is a good combo..  

I am not certain if I am finished with them but thought hey my blog buddies might tell me if I am. 

This one kind of grew, I have seen paintings with things overlapping but wasn't sure if this is how it is done.  Still trying to decide if I want a black background or maybe just a black matt around it.   This one was done, yes watching TV.  I did with my watercolor crayons and just a tad of water.   Something else to do while watching TV.   Yea, if not I just go to sleep.  That can't be good company for hubby.   

This one the colors are a tad different than the others.  Grandaughter wants these framed together and may be her birthday present.  It's ok I don't think she comes and visits the blog so we won't ruin the surprise. 

There you go the Mandalas. It was fun to combine the zentangels and the compass work.  I hope you enjoyed it and so looking forward to 2012. 

Thanks for stopping by and seeing what is going on in my world today.    xoxo
