All kinds of good stuff.

  • Basel, Switzerland. Or Basel, France. Or Basel, Germany.
  • A watercolorist’s process. Her roses are amazing.
  • Beautiful paintings.
  • Following an obsession with Magritte.
  • You know God is capable of giving you a miracle, but it doesn’t happen. How do you respond to that?
  • How to be smarter.
  • I wish I had a cute little quilting studio like this one.
  • The power of a tree to comfort.
  • If you follow this blog, you know I’m a fan of Inktober, the drawing challenge that comes around every October. Here’s an article about another participant’s experience from three years ago (but still timely).
  • Speaking of challenges, NaNoWriMo is coming up next month. Have you ever wanted to write a novel?
  • I don’t really want to be a millionaire, but I think the suggestions in this article could help anyone have a better life.
  • I am such a fan of Fair Isle sweaters.

Inktober Wrap-Up

A reader requested a post with all 22 of my Inktober drawings. I’m so happy to oblige. I’ve posted these each individually, some with explanatory comments that I won’t repeat here. Click on an image to enlarge and scroll through all.

I’d be interested in knowing which one is your favorite. Please comment below.

This year I made 22 drawings in 31 days, so maybe 70% of my goal. In a non-challenge month, my goal is 15, and I seldom reach it, so I’m calling it a win.

Inktober Day 21: Capsized Turtle

Standard

Today’s Inktober drawing was done on the edge of an already-used page in my sketchbook. The hand is part of another drawing, but I’ve left it in the photograph because it adds sort of a humane feeling, doesn’t it?

OctPoWriMo/Inktober Day 17: Who Did You Create Me to Be?

Standard

I’m combining two challenges today, using the OctPoWriMo prompt from Day 14if I were me. The suggested form was a shape poemwhich, due to my lack of coding knowledge, is hard for me to format on WordPress, so I chose to hand-write it.
