Sketching up a storm!

 I recently joined an on-line group of 'sketchers' - people who love to doodle, draw, piddle, paint, watercolor, pen-n-ink, etch----well, you get the idea!  It's really made me start thinking about what's going on in my little 'creative universe'.  I use to be a fine art major, many, many years ago--but marriage, kids, life, life, more life then divorce, singlehood, raising kids by myself, work, work and more work---again, you get the idea---all this caused me to put aside all thoughts of creativity and especially drawing, on the back burner!  And so, speed forward to current times, and I find myself wanting to get back to my creative roots.  Thus, joining the sketching group.  I'm VERY self-conscious of any artwork I attempt but I figure I've got to 'get over' it and just have fun for a change.  So here are a few 'doodles, drawings, piddles, yadda, yadda, yadda!  I will put a link to this sketching group on my blog  for those of you who would like to beef up (or 'tofu-up' for those of us who are vegetarians) your drawing skills or are just looking for a new adventure!  God Bless all and any who read this-

I've always loved working in just plain pencil--this was my first attempt in over 20 yrs.--needs work but it sure is getting the 'drawing' juices flowing!!
This goes back to my hippie days-well, ok so I was never really a hippie, but that was my era!  I used highlighters on this and a Sharpie.  It was great fun!!
I love to draw plants, trees, foliage, etc.  There are so many beautiful designs in nature.  This again is highlighters and a fine-point Sharpie.

This is another pencil drawing with a little bit of Sharpie for definition.  I  kinda like it!
This is a project I'm working on for the sketching group.  We were to pick something we highly price and this is my mom, who is fighting cancer for the 3rd time.  This is just in the beginning stages, so I'll be sure to post it when it's finished!
