My Sketchbook

I recently took an online class by Alisa Burke. She encouraged you to keep a daily sketchbook.One thing I love about keeping a daily sketchbook is that it forces me to slow down and to really see the world around me. Their is so much beauty that we often overlook. Colors, patterns, shapes.. so much to be admired. I find inspiration EVERYWHERE!

and this little chick! ( I love how she wants to be just like "mama".. with her own cup of coffee and watercolors!)

Where do you find your inspiration?

New York!

Was so much fun!! Below was our view from inside 'The Lion King" theatre.. (it's not called that.. but I don't remember the theatre name). I can't believe I have never seen The Lion King until now. It was just what I had heard about it.. AMAZING!



We stopped by the TODAY show to hear the Zac Brown Band!


Visited the Regis and Kelly show

Who knew he just walked to work

Headed to FAO Schwarz Toy Store. I thought it was interesting to see some of the sketches and layouts for Barbie designs. What a fun job that would be!

The MOMA!

This pic below is from Stardust Diner. It's a great little diner and all the waiters and waitresses are actors waiting to make it on Broadway. In between serving they do awesome songs and dances. This place has a good track record too... in the past 6 months 12 of the waitstaff have made it to Broadway! So much fun!


Makeovers at Saks 5th Avenue! This pic is my little cousin Batia. It was her first makeover. Isn't it fun to be a girl!

This was my morning view! I got to sip my coffee and overlook this great city! However, as cool as this view was.... nothing beats the view of God's creation. I was kinda longing for some green trees or blue water. Concrete just can't compare.

This particular restaurant served coffee like this. I am sure this is how some other culture does it.. but I don't know which one. It was different drinking coffee without a handle... but I loved that they brought you a miniature little coffee pot and creamer along with the coffee.. so much more posh than those little white paper creamer cups!

Yes, I LOVE the creativity in this city!

This summer at P'zazz

Just to give you an idea of how crazy busy this summer has been you can click HERE. Don't get me wrong it's been super fun but it's definitely time to re-charge the batteries!

Here we go again!



I'm gonna try to start this blog thing up again. There will be a bit of life, a bit of inspiration, a few art ideas along the way, and who knows what else. My life has been crazy busy this summer. So busy I have hardly been able to keep up. Next week I am headed to New York. Although, New York is a hussle and bussle kind of place I hope to be able to slow down and gather my thoughts a bit. It's so important to stay centered and balanced in this crazy world. The pic is how I want and need to start my day everyday.... on the deck, coffee in hand, looking at God's creation, reading his word ( on the ipad), journaling my thoughts, and sketching a bit to grow creatively. That's the goal!
