Bigger Fish to Fry

Art Challenge, water color, stress reliever
The Bird and the Fish

Hey, the link is still open!

I am virtually running to submit my artwork here (if you can call it artwork) before the door closes. It is the third of the month and I am linking my first entry.

I am sort of cheating here as these are my experimental watercolor pencil I did about a couple of months ago. The picture taking was just done today, though, and the editing and stuff.

The coloring book is from Color Me Your Way, Animals A-Z. No, it's not from the kid's section. It is an adult coloring book. OK, it says, for ages 8 to adult. I use it from time to time as a stress reliever. 

I am no artist and am not fishing for compliments here. And although I have bigger fish to fry, this kind of activity virtually puts money on my piggy bank reserve that I can withdraw from in times of stress.

It has been a while since I depleted my reserves. Last month and this month, I am doing a few things to reenergize to rebuild my resiliency. If I can't get escape from the challenges the follow me, I can at least prepare myself for them.

So, this is me, the green angel fish with my friends and family--facing them, being with them, and trying to stay pretty, haha. And as if I don't have enough challenges in my life, here I am with this artistic group joining the Art Challenge this month of June. Unlike other challenges around me, though, this is a fun one. Ivy, did I just answer the question/topic of the first day, who are you?

Summer is in the Air

It's June! I haven't fully experience spring yet and it's almost summer. Where did the spring go? It is still here, I guess. I am between what to plant outdoors? Spring plants or Summer plants in relation to the best season to plant them. Oh, well, maybe both. At least, the probability of frost may be over. It is usually by Memorial day in Colorado. I have many reasons to be thankful aside from the nice weather suitable for planting. It is also a good season to hike. Look at my two-year-old grandson. He is a natural hiker. He just loves exploring the outdoors, perhaps more than my son, his dad, wants. He would pick up anything interesting in his eyes. Bugs? Dandelion? To me, as long as he does not try to taste them, is OK. :) My son caught a fish after trying so many times. Simple fun. My daughter playing "hair" with a Fuschia headpiece my niece, gave us something to smile about. I am planting again. My outdoor tower planter is full of tomatoes both from store bro

Sweet Times

Say hello to our new dog, Bando. He is an 8-week old boxer mix dog. We estimate he will grow and weigh up to 70 pounds. As my family got over the untimely death of our miniature poodle, Snowball, we all welcome this new baby, Bando, into the house. Josiah loves dogs and our dogs love him. They are all are very sweet.  We can't have too much sweetness in the house. So grandma got some cupcakes for them to decorate. Josiah decided to decorate his face instead though. It was a mix of cool nights and warm to hot days. It's nice to go out and be around the water, even man-made dams. We took a hike this morning. I am still growing plants, even indoors. Here is today's picture of my little aquaponics. Fish in the bottom, plants on top. I like these sprouts on my salad. I lost my father a few years ago. He died in the hospital after a few days stay. His passing, however painful to us, was a relief for him. I am thankful his suffering ended. I feel grateful for a good week. Happy

Week of Painting

I would post a picture of grand vacation but I don not have the money to go. What I have done are trips to the mall not to shop but to paint. Take a look at our work--simple and fun. My daughter enjoyed it too.
