New Angel Sketch And Some Whining . . .

Thank you so much for your amazing comments on my beach cottage photo from my last post!! Oh how I wish I was there now! We have just had more snow dumped on us again here in NY and I am a bit sick of it. Speaking of sick . . . . it has been almost 2 weeks since I came down with this bug and I felt like I was getting better until yesterday when the headache and fever stuff began again! UGH! Whatever this bug is it is wanting to stick around awhile.

So for the past couple of weeks I have been unable to create and that has been frustrating. The only art I have done is some sketching. I tried to paint the other day and just couldn't do it. I miss it. Maybe it is because I am not feeling that great. It feels like I have lost it . . . like I won't be able to get back in the groove again.

On a positive note here is my latest angel sketch I did the other night. As you know I do love hearts and wanted to incorporate them into her world. The words along the side say "and her heart opened wide" I have been wanting to paint her and my other angel but for right now I have no drive to paint. Actually I have no drive to do much of anything and oh how I am tired of it! I would like my energy back . . .

And I do know that in the big scheme of things this bug I have is nothing really to complain about but sometimes you just have to vent.

Despite all that I am very thankful for all of you who brighten my days with your visits and comments! :)


  1. Every time I am sick, art is kind of the last thing on the list. I think the energy for creating and producing it is used up trying to get well. (sounds like you had what I've had for ever...)
    I'll be anxious to see this painted though, when you feel like it and when you're back up and perking!
    Take care--get well!


  2. She is beautiful and so sweet...such a charmer!! Oh my..I saw the beach cottage photo..wowee...lucky!! it is beautiful!
    Wishing you a happy wkd ahead!

  3. She's lovely Cathy and I really hope you feel better soon sweetie ((hugs)) xxxx

  4. Perhaps we can call this beautiful Angel "The Angel of Healing". Sounds like that bug has a hold of you; thinking positive thoughts that you will be feeling better soon. This weather doesn't help either - it's an unreasonable winter! xxoo
