I’m having so much fun drawing these little guys!! They just crack me up!! This one is Terri the Tennis-Chic, in honor of my Ten years playing ladies tennis! I so enjoyed this sport! I always thought I’d get back into it when the kids didn’t need me so much. But beginning it as an adult, it consumed a lot of my time. Time which now has found other outlets! Thank God, cuz I was pretty uni-dimensional then!! But Oh, did I have fun!
I did a couple new things here! I put more elements in the background than I usually do, I think it helps keep the interest on the subject. I also, was too lazy to go grab my watercolor pencils, which forced me to make the hair out of markers, which turned out o.k., i guess. I had to put the “P” (for Prince) on the racquet since these were the only racquets I played with. I probably would never have been caught dead wearing a little cutesy-dress like this but lots of ladies who played were “oh-so” fashionable. They always looked adorable, too!
Terri- the Tennis Chic………..She is a young mom who has finally found some fun adult company while learning a new skill and getting plenty of exercise. You’d think that playing 2 hours of tennis that day would wear her out, but not Teri….when she goes to get the kids in the nursery she has more energy and is more engaging! She’s a better mom for having her own outlets other than being kid-focused 24/7.
…………….Trust me I know!!!……………..
Terri goes along with the bird friend series from this post. I forgot to do an editorial like this on Sheila, Bunny, and Patty. I hate that their stories are going un-sung! Ahhhh well, such is life!!

- By day...I work in the Healthcare field, where every .. i.. has to be dotted and every ..t.. has to be crossed. This blog is the place where I can let myself go and have some fun. I am on a journey. A journey I started a long time ago, but it has been a bit sidetracked with Navy Wife relocations and raising kids. I finally see the light at the end of the tunnel and I have got some time for me. No, I will not be one of those moms walking around the house with Empty Nest Syndrome, I have got way too much to do, to learn, to create. Sure, once the kids are gone I will miss them....but hey, there is always the phone, the email, the texting and the Plane tickets! I love my life and my family and It is fun moving into this new stage. I am into Digital Scrapbooking, photography, journaling, Art Journaling and Drawing. I am a do-it-yourselfer and I am trying to teach myself to draw. I am finding that it takes a lot of patience, lots of practice and a good eraser!
