Stencil Art


 


Stenciling is not something I normally do so I was struggling with the concept a bit.  I think I lost the stencil parts once I colored in, but as I was pleased with the outcomes , I left them.  We are still struggling with the idea of being in the house all of the time, but having Rain's prompts to distract me has been a godsend.  Thank you, Rain and all of you who join in this fun ... you are making my day ... my week and who knows however long this will be :)

When was the last time ... ?



When was the last time you ...




took a walk by yourself ...

Ran with your dog ...

spent time with your immediate family ...

 Exercised at home ...


Went outside and enjoyed nature ...


Read a book from cover to cover ...


So then ...
When was the last time you said THANK YOU to the first responders ...

 to the fire fighters ...

 The Police ...

 The Truck Drivers ...

 The Grocery Clerks ...


The Pharmacist ...

The Army Hospital staff ...

The many state and local leaders that have stepped up to lead when those who should have didn't ...

The many volunteers sewing PPE for our first responders ...

And this list goes on and on ...  people  who understand the severity of the Pandemic are all stepping up, doing what they can, fighting for their families, friends and all of the human race.   It is frightening to live through a moment in time that will be a glaring page in the history books.  I thank you all for what you do for others, I pray for all to survive this scourge and my heart goes out to those who have lost loved ones.  Stay safe ... do what the science dictates and follow your own good sense ... Be well, be smart, be safe ... and have hope!

In Like a Lion Out like a Lamb


I used my favorite technique of combining drawing (in this case with colored pencils) and digital art, some of which I took from public domain.   In like a lion could pertain to more than the month of March, but the horror of the virus that has spread throughout the world ... and continues to roar like a lion.  I hope all of you are doing well and being safe.  Follow the rules of social distancing and find ways to stay home and still maintain your sanity ... I wish you all well!
