It's been a long year...

It's been a while since I've posted to my blog.  Life sometimes gets hectic.  For the past year, I've been undergoing treatment for breast cancer.  Just recently finished chemo and radiation.  I'm feeling lots better and I'm trying to get back in the "swing of things".  I've been doodling and drawing...playing music again on my dulcimer...and now I'm going to learn to play the ukelele.  

Here's a couple of doodles that I've worked on to try to get back into my drawing.  The first one is truly a doodle that started with no preconceived idea...just lines.  I kept working around the center shape concentrating on pattern.  The next one was started with a shape that began to look like a flower shape, so I continued with leaf shapes.  At first, I was not pleased with this one until I began to add some darker lines for contrast.  These doodles are good to keep my fingers busy while I'm watching a TV show...especially one that my husband is watching that I'm not really interested in.
