These doodle-ly things.

As you’ve probably gathered by now, I love me some art. Always have. Always will.

Way back in the day I started “doodling”. On my notebook, on letters to my family… eventually it turned into an art form. I would doodle in art history class and people who sat behind me would comment how much they liked it. And I liked it too.

When I graduated from college I had my first solo art show in Lincoln, Nebraska. I spent 40+ hours doodling on a large sheet (32 x 25 inches) of chipboard, then painted a sheet of wood to act as a frame and… viola!

It’s a piece of art that hangs in our entry-way. I call it “Lullaby” because the process of creating it was soothing — much like hearing your parents sing you a lullaby before bed when you were a kid.

Because I enjoy this relaxing form of art, I’ve applied it in gold ink to some red A7 (5 x 7 inch) cards—which I’ve sold for years at an adorable flower shop in Lincoln, on my etsy shop, and to, frankly, anyone interested. I recently added some to my etsy shop—just in time for Valentine’s Day! ♥ (I got excited and took the photos before signing and dating—please note I will sign and date before shipping.)
