Can you tell I was feeling kinda wild and crazy the day I did this sketch of my sun room? I thought I'd try something different - crooked lines, weird perspective, almost a coloring book look. I used a fuschia Sharpie to draw the lines, then added some watercolors. Isn't it cheerful?
When I came across that one in my sketchbook today, it put me in the mood to do another one of these fun, casual sketches. Here's a corner of my living room ...
No, I don't really have pink woodwork in my house. I was just having fun with color. It's been another one of those gray days here, with fog, snow, rain, and just a hint of sunshine once in awhile. I felt like painting something bright and happy to give myself a little lift. Life doesn't have to be so serious all the time, does it? Polka dot walls might actually be kind of fun!

I have so much drapery work waiting for me - I really should have been sewing when I was down there sketching, but these little paintings don't take long at all to complete, and taking an hour for a little creative therapy pays great dividends. I'm ready to tackle those pillows and valances with renewed energy and a much better attitude.
What kind of Creative Therapy do you make time for?
