Positive Quotes, Some Art

Sketch Rabbits“Drag your thoughts away from your troubles…
by the ears, by the heels,
or any other way you can manage it.”
~Mark Twain

10-20-13  You’ve probably noticed that my Posts have been few and far between.  Yes, I am on the roller coaster of life, but I still try to keep the lines of creative communication open in small ways.
How?  Well, my novel progresses with charts of plot ideas, collected from everywhere my mind travels, and kept safe.  And, with art, I am working on a small watercolor, another design illustration, painting just a few strokes each day.  It should be finished next week.

“With the new day
comes new strength and new thoughts.”
~Eleanor Roosevelt


P.S.  The quotes came from a “Best Thoughts” paper project that was featured by The Toymaker,  a few years ago.   Marilyn’s a friend of mine and I want to give credit where credit is due.
