Happy Monday!

It's been a week since I last posted. If you follow me on Instagram, you know I've been creating every day. I just haven't blogged.  Sometimes, I feel like I have nothing to say. Words are always difficult for me and just posting images only seem redundant if you follow me on any of the social media out there. 

For today, the prompts were:
DND Challenge - "Never give up"
Tinker Lab - sprinkle 
Let's sketch it - Magazine

I know I could have drawn what I did in a magazine cover format but that was too much work! There were two different directions I considered for this art. One was using a donut as a temptation to say never give up on your diet. Perhaps that would have been more inspirational. Instead, I let my inner child speak and created what you see above.

Most adults lose their inner child along the way to becoming a grown-up. I, on the other hand, cannot get rid of my inner child. Now people who think they know me may say that's not true at all.. I'm afraid I'm forever stuck in my 12-year old self. Why 12? Maybe someday I'll explain.

So here are the daily art pages from last week.

I drew this from a photo of my dad for Veteran's Day.

These are from the Battle of Gettysburg re-enactment my daughter participated in. I'm going to blog about this later this week.

My daughter, Jessica, has come up with many quirky sayings all her life. I wish I wrote them down somewhere..

I hope you have a great Monday!


  1. Hi Angelcake! Hah, at twelve I was so hoping to get rid of my inner adult! It happened when I was twenty-four and met my very best girlfriend to this day. Love the pictures, Ms Kari (always do). You have a good week.


  2. These are wonderful. I especially like the reenactment pictures you created. What an awesome event! And I love the inner child one, because I can relate!! It is almost like a caricature, too, which is cool and fun! Nice work this past week!

  3. I love the sunset picture - the colors and the saying. Very nice! :)
