The plight of an artist

My lovely hubby is a therapist and he has just opened up a new office. When he saw one of my doodles, he decided to take a chance on me and asked me to draw some inspirational quotes for his office.

So, enjoying this sudden new job as an artist and of having my first ‘customer’, I started doodling

This was my first picture.

My hubby reluctantly accepted this one. But explained he wanted something more …more. Not having a clue what he meant by ‘more’, I drew some proposals and showed him my ideas.

He didn’t like any of them. Apparently, they were too girly for therapy.

Now, I know he’s the therapist but too girly?

Maybe this would be more to his liking:


Drawing with pencils

I tried drawing with pencils and… well, I’m no Picasso but pencils have the ability to make any doodle appear serious and professional, so I love them.

Here is the result. I know…at least it was fun to draw.


Believe it or not, that’s supposed to be Winston Churchill. I included a picture so you would know what he actually looked like.



Doodling attempt

So, this is me doodling again. I’m really trying to excuse the money I’ve spent on the art supplies and, hopefully, learn a thing or two…or, if that fails, have fun. Oh and this is a copy. I tried to imitate one of the greats, hoping that doing that, I’d learn something.

This one is the original that so inspired me.



Yeap. It’s for sale…to the highest bidder.
