Drawings and mixed media - #161 and 162

I am almost there;at the end of presenting the drawings from the last year challenge that I could not complete.These two are more like experiments with mixed media,drawings with ink and watercolor pencils and collage on different kinds of paper.They are not dated but they were done in the second half of last year,so I left them to be the last ones,with a couple more which are going to come soon.

New pets in the house

My husband had four aquariums that got destroyed by the flood  in 2007,That was his #2 hobby after gardening.He had all kinds of pretty fish that was such fun to watch.Finally we could afford to recover this loss.We got three fish tanks for free from a relative and we,mostly him ,started browsing pet stores for fish.His favourite kind are the cichlids.The Gold fish are my daughter's.Of course she had to have her own tank too!Everybody should be happy at home now,even the cats.Now our cat Precious spends hours by the fish tanks watching the fish  and wondering why she cannot get them.Aren't they so pretty these little fishes?Fascinating!

Some more illustrations from last year

Can't believe it is almost the middle of September and this is my first post for this month.Life tries really hard to get in the way of my blogging!Too many things to do and no enough time.
Well,today the things are going really good so far.Almost all the chores were done in time,my kid was  at school and the computer was waiting patiently for me.So I embraced this opportunity and here I am,at the computer.Sometimes I wonder why I do that.The blogging ,I mean.To brag about myself and the things I do and make?I don't know.I think I do it more as therapy; to distract myself from the hardships of life,to try to look at my life from a different perspective and ,I hope, to inspire somebody the way I get inspired by the other people's blogs.
These three illustrations were inspired by Christmas and the flying away year of the rabbit, 2011.
