I can't give this up!

Lately I have been feeling really discouraged and have toyed with the idea of quitting blogging.
Then I read a post by  I love her blog.  I also picked up the latest
issue of Artful Blogging. 
I am finding I'm not alone in these feelings of inadequacy.  I just need to pick myself up and dust myself off and try again.  I wonder if this is what a mid-life crises is. Lol!!!  Thinking back and regretting what you haven't done and kicking yourself for what you're not doing.  I need to
get over the fear and do it anyway.  Make my dreams come true. 

I'm going to share a kinda new painting I just finished.  I have been working on it for a year now.
Just when I think I'm finished, I think of something else to enhance it.  The painting is called
I also am going to be doing a picture of my sister and I at the coast.  I have been
drawing a thumbnail sketch to work it out.  As soon as I have that one done I will post it.
Thanks for listening to my rambling.  Have a great evening

Blissed Out At The Coast

I finelly got my trip to the coast.  It was so wonderful to feel the
ocean breeze.  I really needed to feel the sand between my toes.
Here is a picture of a beautiful pelican.
There were two on the pier.  They just sat there and posed
for us.  Earlier we watched them dive for food.  It was
really fun to watch.
In my wanderings I found the cutest flower shop.
I just had to stop and take pictures of it.

We took my sister with us.  It is rare that we get to spend time together.
Tim had a hard time walking on the pier.  He's smiling through his pain here.
Still, he did really good and is recovering from open heart surgery very well.
A week before we went to the coast we went and spent some time with 2 of our good friends.
Jerry and Cathy.  Cathy is a kindred spirit.  We like the same things.  It is dangerous for us to go
shopping together.  I made her this remote control cover.  In our vintage world, we
do not like to see the ugly things.
She has a talent for setting up vintage vignettes.

Have a great day.  Blessings to you.
