Art with Aruna

After a two week break, my friend, Aruna, and I were able to meet up again for another drawing date.
Our previous outing was on June 25th to Bouchon Cafe at one of the nearby malls.

Today we headed just up the highway to a new restaurant complex called Vibes to check out the Mediterranean restaurant, Maize, that I read about in a local magazine.
The decor was really lovely.
And the food was delicious.
Edamame hummus, green falafel, cauliflower flatbread

Amazingly, Aruna matched the edamame hummus perfectly.
Gorgeous greens!

After chatting and eating, it was time for drawing.
Aruna takes her time sketching.
 While I doodle and draw and add lots of color to my page.
The little bird drawing was actually inspired by a picture from Instagram that Cheryl posted of her pretty bird Layla.
Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.

Unfortunately, while we were enjoying our art time inside, the weather outside got very windy and dusty.
So much for yesterday's beautiful blue skies.

Have a terrific Tuesday!

Summertime Blues

In all honesty, I do tend to get a bit blue during the hot months of summer.
Temperatures have already reached 120 F (and some say much hotter), so we are often cooped up inside.  But today, I felt the need to walk, even if I could only manage 10 minutes or so.
It was such a clear today, and surprisingly, despite what the thermometer read, there was even a nice breeze which made being outside quite pleasant.
This disk was definitely going round and round due to solar power.
Blue sky and blue sea always make me happier.
 As does spending time in nature.
And crocheting outdoors.

Hope you are having a great summer so far.
