Enjoying my day

I went and bought myself a new camera today! I think I love it. It's just an updated version of the one I already had, but this one cost less and has more pixels and higher zoom. I'm not much of a camera nut, but I do know more pixels is a good thing. And less money is always good too.

Since my sweetie has been out of town, I'm trying to spend a little more time at my art table. I experimented with gel pens on black paper .....one is a salmon, the other is just doodling.
and then I did a zentangle......
and also copied some flower and bamboo off a plastic tablecloth from Hula Hands restaurant. I just love Hula Hands. There are two of them in Anchorage now; one in Mountain View and one on Fireweed Lane. They have the best Hawaiian food around including macaroni salad, spam and white rice.

Hawaiian restaurants in ANC? Very cool. That's big city stuff.

Your peace and quiet has obviously been very productive. Nice pictures.

Love the gel pen work. It is good that you have your art to keep you company while hubby is hunting. It will be interesting to see if he actually uses the camera while away.

I love that salad. Nice pics. But then I am your sister and I think that all that you do is good.

Hey, these are just great. Love that flower. Hawai'ian food in Alaska! WHOOHOO!

I bought a second camera last year and now I use both a lot. My hubby thought I was crazy for needing two, but one fits in my pocket/purse so it is always with me for those priceless moments!

Lovely. And as for cameras....they are beyond me still, but I can sing with Simon and Garfunkle...."Please don't take my kodachrome away."
