I may not have time to create hand held art right at the moment but I can create with the words rumble-bumbling around my head. Here goes:

by Nomajean Brevik

A dark, dark day,
so dismal and gray,
the rain pitter pat at my door.

The light at my desk,
makes me notice the mess,
I left unattended before.

I long for the sun,
the beach and the fun,
a life unfettered by work.

I hope that it won't be long,
before the birds sing their song,
and the sun comes out of the murk.

I saw my first robin today and even in the craziness of my busy day I had to squeeze in a bit of art and paint a quick watercolor tonight to mark her arrival.
A hint of sping air,
a little bird sings her song,
joyful for the day.

I made these bookmarks up this weekend, they are for prizes for the Fiber Art Traders challenges. My friend Michelle came up with the idea of simple prizes for the monthly challenges. It was fun to put together these mixed media pieces as give aways.

This week has been a busy one so not much time for art. I did try a prompt today and it was the word: Family
I decided to make my SIL birthday card and have it ready to mail. The mermaid stamp was one that I bought in Hawaii.

Aloha! My art for the last couple weeks has been some much needed R&R. Odd and I went to Maui for a week and to the big island of Hawaii for a week. We really preferred the big island but each had it's own unique flair. I brought back many inspirational photos and a few (ahem) souvenirs. The vacation was heavenly and we both felt like our batteries are recharged a bit.

So now it's time to get on with the business of taxes, YUCK! It may be a while before I'll have some studio time but I so need to get back into my daily routine again soon.

Thanks for stopping by... see ya later alligator.
