Welcome to Peek A Boo Tuesday!!

Today I am going to share with you one of my secret desires!!

I have always wanted to be an artist!!
We have a couple in the family who are pretty
This last summer I even bought a boo
k to help teach
you to draw, some pap
er and pencils.
But alas, I never did any
thing with them.
So I have made up my mind that t
his Spring when the
weather gets nicer I am going to fix up myself an
artist's loft to work in! Well, ac
tually just a small space
that I can call all my own!!
I have seen some very talented pe
ople on blogs!

I envision all kinds of ways that I could fix up my space!

Oh my goodness! I don't think so

I like this one really well, but don't have a space this big!!

Next my tools of the trade!

An artist's pallet!

I love these silver tins to hold supplies!

I sit here and ponder what should I start first!!

I know that I want to start drawing first is animals!
I would love to learn how to stipple. I really am drawn
to this kind of drawing!

Naturally I would love to be able to draw my favorite!!

I think these are beautiful!

Maybe I will even get brave and do watercolor!

One of my daughters is very talented!
She drew these by looking at the work of other artist's!
The first one here she did for her grandfather because it
reminded her of him.

This next one is a picture of Jacquelin Kennedy Onassis
when she was a little girl!

A picture of an old fisherman perhaps!

A couple of pictures of little girls!!

I think that she should be the one to become an artist!!

When I get my little room all fixed up and start my
drawings I will let you see how I do!!
Thank you for coming to Peek A Boo Tuesday!!


  1. Wouldn't it be wonderful to have your own special place to hold some of your dreams! I think you should try to draw, you never know, you could be great!

  2. Howdy
    Oh Honey I can hardly wait till Spring rolls around to see what you come up with .
    Blessings to you and yours and may your dreams become reality this Spring !
    Big Hugs
    Happy Trails

  3. So...where is this space going to your "horsey" area? I had the same urge several years ago and decided on accrylics...never did anything but spread paint around but it really was fun and relaxing!!! I did one drawing of M Bubbles but it looked like me...not her!!!

  4. It would be really fun to be able to call yourself an artist. I think I would need a quiet place, quiet music. I think one needs to be diligent if wanting to learn.

  5. I can't wait to see what you create. I have an intense admiration for artists of all kinds, especially painters. When I was younger, I used to sketch horses ALL THE TIME. Haha, made I should dig those up and scan them in. I also, would love to have a photography studio in my home.

  6. That is neat you want to be an artist! It's important to try to learn new things. You just have to dig in and start somewhere. I did some acrylic painting a few years ago, a kind of "class" at a woman's home. It was fun and I did a few nice paintings, but I lost interest. I still have the supplies and once in a while want to tackle another canvas. I'm pretty artistic, but, can be critical and a bit of a perfectionist. I recently found some old sketchbooks from when I was a teenager and I could draw horses so well! Wish I would have kept that up!
    Sares is really talented, the best in our bunch I think!! :)

  7. Good for you! Can't wait to see what you create:)
