Yes, I'm Still Sketching!

Every single day! I can hardly believe it myself! πŸ˜€

I’ve been a bit distracted and busy the last little while with some PAS stuff, so many of my recent sketches are fairly last-minute rough and quick ones. Honestly, there are a few I would not normally show or share publicly because they’re just THAT […]

The End of An Era

An era is defined at as:

1. a period of time marked by distinctive character, events, etc.: The use of steam for power marked the beginning of an era. 2. the period of time to which anything belongs or is to be assigned: She was born in the era of hansoms and […]

Habit Forming

According to this Huffington Post article, it takes about (or at least) 66 days to form a new habit. Though I can’t say that sketching is a “new” habit for me, sketching every single day without fail certainly is!

Keeping Up

I’m finding the most difficult part of my Daily Sketch Challenge is not the sketching part, but the actual photographing of the sketches and then making/finding the time to blog about them. The blogging part has always been a challenge for me (as evidenced by the sporadic timing of all my previous posts! LOL), but […]

More Daily Sketches

It’s been a struggle to keep these daily sketches up this past week, first due to busy-ness and then due to being sick … I seem to have caught the flu πŸ™

Though I would probably consider this more a painting than a sketch, I am going to count it as […]

Daily Sketch Challenge Going Strong

Well, I must say, I have sort of really shocked myself by reaching the end of January with not a single day of my Daily Sketch Challenge missed! I’ve even managed to get in a few extra sketches for a total of 34 sketches over the course of 31 days. Admittedly, it’s been quite a […]

Sketches and more sketches!

I must admit, it’s been a bit difficult to keep up with my Daily Sketch Challenge as I’ve been so busy lately, but I am determined to end up with at least 366 sketches by the end of the year, so am admittedly proud of myself for having made it through the first few weeks […]

Night At The Museum: Whales and Wolves and Dinosaurs, Oh My!

Last night was the new official Urban Sketchers Ottawa first sketch crawl! There have been other sketch crawl events by this group, but this was the first one as an officially recognized Urban Sketcher Regional Chapter, which was very exciting! And what a night it turned out to be! Record numbers of sketchers turned out […]

Welcome 2016!

Welcome, welcome, welcome 2016! It’s so exciting to have a brand new year just lying in wait for me to discover! A clean slate awaits with 366 magnificent fresh starts, each with opportunities to explore, to grow, to do good, to get it right! Yes, undoubtedly I will stumble along the way, and maybe even […]

2015 Reflections

Well it’s been some time since I’ve updated here hasn’t it?! The usual excuses apply, but now that the craze of the holidays is fading and while the end of the year is still a warm memory, I feel the desire to wrap 2015 up in a nice pretty package and kiss it a loving […]
