could be anything. might be nothing. might make you think. could make you wish I would stop.
breathe people...everything is easier when you breathe!



So here we are...the end has come...and I am sadly behind.
Cheer up! I see the finish line ahead tho all the other racers are long gone.
I have prevailed against the sickness and the dark of night to rise victorious o're the foe.
In other words I did it. Even tho it took me longer than I wanted. It was fun to challenge myself.
Thanks to my teammates who accepted the challenge also!
I am wrapping up this last week in one fell swoop...
First some beautiful scenery. A beautiful beach is my idea of heaven. The sound of the waves...ahhhh....

Then something I don't like. This is open water. No land to be seen. Even photographs of open water make me nervous. This does not make me go ahhhh...

Next we have someone I love. She asked me to draw her. I love her. I left it as a sketch because I think it looks just like her and I don't want to ruin it.
The ironic title of this next piece is "anything I like". Notice that it is laundry filling my bed...which I do not like. I was sitting and staring at it while trying to draw. (also maybe trying to avoid the laundry doing)
Notice at the bottom..."and piles to go before I sleep". I must have read that somewhere because I cannot be that brilliant. Either way, it does make me crack up.
Finally, we have the last drawing in the series. The congratulations banner. Notice that you cannot read the entire banner and it kind of wimps out at the end.( More pennant like than banner. )
I just wanted to represent the fact that I lapsed in the middle and wimped out at the end...still, I conquered.
And that deserves a little rah-rah.
For the observant among you I confess that I skipped a picture here at the end. Someplace I would like to go. I left it out and I am amazed that you noticed. It is just that I wanted to put it at the end.
An artistic p.s. if you will.
Remember how they used to ask the winners "what are you gonna do now?" And they would holler...
"I'm going to Disneyland!!"
Yeah, I wish that were me.

Thank you all for joining me on this artistic journey. I hope you enjoyed it.
Please go visit the other will be glad you did.

We now return to our regularly scheduled programming. Angst will commence when I am good and ready.

If this is your first visit, we were doing a 30 day drawing challenge.
Drawing challenge list.

Check out all the players.

    1. Thanks Don! Yes, Mickey looks a little scary. Maybe his suspenders are too tight.
      The unnamed person is my daughter Mercy. I love her.

    2. you introduced a new word (i thought it was a typo)
      I don't know if I retconned it but I like how it fit.

  2. Well, was the symbolism attached to the drawing before or after? :)

    "Retcon" is short for retroactive continuity, and it's a term commonly used in reference to comic books, T.V. shows and movies for when producers change the prior established story in order to make the current state of the story match up with where they want it to be or where they want to take it.

    For example, between Star Trek: The Original Series and Star Trek: The Next Generation, the appearance of the Klingons got a vast overhaul, and they now look completely different. Producers retconned that by saying that there had been a genetic mutation in the Klingon genome causing the new appearance.

  3. I always wondered about that Klingon thing! The symbolism for the banner just happened. I drew the banner then saw how it was kinda symbolic of my drawing challenge journey so I just went ahead and connected the dots.
    So, technically I do not think this fits the retcon thing. Didn't create it forward or backward...just happened. cool.

  4. Excellent Conclusion! I will meet you at the finish line...eventually. :)
