On her blog Creative Every Day, Leah suggests doodling and sketching first thing in the morning and last thing at night. I look forward to my night time drawls. I've been having so much fun with this process that I even purchased some new pens. I know that eventually I will want to incorporate these doodles with Photoshop, but right now Im grateful for some time away from the computer. Yea. As if that could happen for too very long.

Thank you, Leah, for encouraging this playtime for us all.

These are so fun! I LOVE the watchtower one the best. So happy you are taking her advice. It becomes you.

I was going to say in my last comment that maybe the Epson ink issue was a blessing in disguise; and now I see I should have written that. Your doodles are just wonderful and free (I love the watchtower). This is fabulous and trying on some different media is always a wonderful way to "take a break" from the familiar and at the same time, it inspires you in so many new directions toward approaching your "old" work in a different way. Sue, I love them as they are, there is no need to photoshop them..

Hey, I am gone for a number of weeks and I come back and you are doodling! I thought someone else had taken over your blog, but you doodle well. What sort of pens did you get? Maybe I can get some of those, I am serious! I would love to sit and doodle.

Are you still making mandalas? I suppose I better read and look at some older posts and answer my own question. It's good to be back. Take care.

Cheerio!

Oh, I see what your pens are called.Silly me for not clicking on the link sooner.

Sue, if you go to my latest post, there is a P.S. at the bottom with a surprise in it for you. In appreciation for all the good things I have just seen.

I love your doodles. hair brained ideas gave me a laugh! It is like looking into your mind. The colors are great, so fun.

I've admired the doodles since you first posted them. And since I broke the ice with the other comment I just made on today's mandala, I decided it was high time to pop over this post and say.......I ADORE YOUR DOODLES!!! They are quirky, offbeat, skilled, and imaginative. Did I say I ADORED THEM? I do.
