Sorry I have been away. I struggled with depression at times and if I don’t recognize what I am feeling I slowly isolate myself. I must relearn how to be a friend.
I am however blessed with positive loving people in my life. PTL
It took some thought and a little whimsy, but finally I built my octopus a home.
I love the colour and the mystery. My nephew and I argued (in jest) whether or not it was an alien habitat or truly a water world. Ha ha who knows really when you let your imagination out of the box.
Well I’ve been painting with markers for about a year now, so I thought time to play a bit more.
Step 1 draw something.
Step 2 play… Okay here I accidentally spilled more of the solution onto my image, washing it out more than I intended. Then I proceeded to step 3 before taking a picture…
Step 3 keep going. When things don’t go as planned, decide if there is potential. If yes, keep going; if no, keep trying.
Marking up the sky…
A sampler in pattern, line and repetition. Marker on canvas by Theresa Janzen.
I finished off all the canvases I purchased. Nice!
A little more therapy. Ink on canvas.

I was hoping to finish today, but my marker has no tip left lol…oops. Any suggestions on a background besides white? I was thinking a stain glass look or a fence, or maybe a simple pattern in a light grey?
Ever have a day when nothing worked? I should have been prepared when I spilled my dirty laundry everywhere.
