"Not a day without a line"; WOYWW #17

Dear Readers,
 Hooray! Week 2 in a row!  Let's see if I can keep this roll going! :)  Currently I am trying something new where I am attempting to go 12 weeks painting at least a line every day.  I based this idea off of several things- "Not a day without a line." Originally attributed to Pliny the Elder but made famous by Vincent Van Gogh in his letters to Theo.  I also read The Artist's Way  by Julie Cameron, and while I did the morning pages, I want to do 12 weeks of painting this time.  So far this has been fairly successful ( I am only on day 4)  because it gets me into my studio to paint that line.  Then once I am there I get engrossed and keep going for a good 20- 30 minutes.  Hopefully this keeps up.  Do you do anything similar? Thanks for visiting!  Check out the other WOYWWers!

Shoes and Flowers- WOYWW # 16

Dear Friends,
I know.  2 months.  What was I DOING?!?!?!  Can I just say I missed you all?  But Wednesdays are now my CRAZY day, working 6 hours straight with 1. 25.minute.break.  (In which I run around like a crazy person getting ready for the next 3 classes). Sigh.  I come home wiped.  SO I have a great new plan where I prepare my pictures/ect. on Sunday, and then post on Wednesday.  One click and it's posted.  It's a great plan, but in case you haven't noticed, I'm a world class procrastinator.  Something to do with being creative...I'm very creative at postponing things! So we'll see how it goes.  Anyway, I present to you, work from the last two months!  I really have been busy artistically, drawing at a botanical gardens near my house nearly every single day. And visit some other wonderful WOYWWers!
This is my workdesk currently:

This is what I've been doing:
I love them!  Finally posted a pic, they've been finished for months.

An image from my botanical garden sketches.  I'll post more next week!
Thanks for catching up with me!
