I’ve been quietly
brooding contemplating life lately. I might have a few posts in the coming days, but for right now I thought I’d post some happy doodles I have been making.
I tend to bring my sketch books whereever I go and I tend to doodle either when I’m watching the girls play softball, or at the coffee shop, or occasionally late at night.
I like doodling because it’s fun and a little meditative.
“Someone Exactly Like You” is the song title of a Van Morrison song from ages ago.
My daughter is getting into doodling a little bit. Here she was borrowing a book of doodles for some inspiration for her “magic carpet” she needed to make for a story she wrote in class before school was over.
I noticed that long, boring awards banquets for your 8th grade nephew aren’t so boring when you can doodle on the program.
And yes, I realize I misquoted the title of the movie “Don’t Mess with the Zohan”. But, not really. My brother, the ultra-cool, snooty lawyer dude was at the dinner table, and I said something along the lines about if my husband or I don’t get a job soon, that I’d go sell my body to put food on the table. He didn’t think that was appropriate dinner table talk and disapprovingly sniped at me. But I was KIDDING!
Hence, I wrote, “Don’t mess with ‘Bro’ – han”. Bro = slang for brother. See?
Don’t get me wrong. I like my brother enough. He just doesn’t like my kind of humor.
And this was a little bit of an attempt at a watercolor in a little watercolor notebook I have. It is supposed to be a sunset over my favorite pond done with watercolor pencils.
