Sketch Book

This is just from my sketch book and thinking about how time passes and there are so many things I want to do. It is called Too much time has gone by. It seems as if time has gone by and my life is on hold. Which we know can not be possible. Life is never on hold.. It continues even if we are not where we thought we would be.
I still have not been in my studio except to walk in and look out the window for a few minutes and turn and walk out.
I took my Mother to a birthday party this weekend.. The birthday boy was 90 years old..His beautiful wife was also there the age of 89.. So my mom got to talk to old friends.. and enjoy wonderful desserts... Oh no that was me eating the desserts..LOL...
She had a wonderful time. On this occasion she had her toe nails polished Green. She talked about all the men commenting on her toes all the way home for a hour and a half...

I hope everyone has a great week and I hope soon I will get back in my studio and start posting more..I miss all my friends .

May you always dream in color,
Katelen

I know that feeling all too well. Since the stillbirth of my daughter i feel time has stood still for me. Only now do I feel able to take tentative steps forward. And as you say, the world really is continuing at breakneck speed, leaving us behind...

Enjoy your week and i hope you get a little 'you' time x

Great sketch. Is this a self portrait? I assume it is.

Thanks for all the comments. No it is not a self portrait..I have been looking to long at Modigliani. Even if it does not come close to his work...Katelen
