She Thinks Positive Journal: 47/120

This one started as another hairless girl, but decided in that she will actually grow some hair on one of her sides.

I am not too pleased with her, don’t know why actually. But that’s fine, I don’t have to love all of them.

Good news is it’s Friday! Weather’s not nice, I did not go for a run, so I slept a bit longer. Yesterday I went out for a dinner with a friend of mine. We usually meet once in two weeks and have a dinner in some nice place. Yesterday we went to an american diner place and had huge burgers. It’s lovely having ‘forbidden’ food from time to time. Otherwise I keep very strict diet with minimum carbs and zero sugar, so these occasions are little celebrations of indulgence and friendship which make me very happy.

That’s all for today. Have a happy Friday!

Today, there is one more bald girl.

She obviously let go of her hair, as it was very warm this summer. She is having second thoughts now, I think. That’s why she looks so angry.

It’s Thursday and the weather is so very cold that I could hardly run this morning. My nose kept running all the time and my eyes were full of tears. I was breathing hard, and my muscles were stiff, as my body obviously couldn’t handle the cold properly. I am glad I went out though. It was actually sunny and quite nice and there were other runners and lots of fishermen around the lake where I run. I wonder how they manage to stand the cold as they are only sitting or standing for hours.

While I was driving to work, freezing rain started to fall. It looks like it could turn into snow if it goes on. I hope not, it’s still early for snow…

She is little bit different. I wanted to see what happens if she had no hair, or very very short haircut:

I like her. I also like this black (called neutral black, which is actually a mixture of red, blue and black).

It’s Wednesday and we are half way through the working week and getting closer to the weekend, which is always good news. The weather is beautiful, blue sky and sunshine, cold but beautiful, especially looking from the inside of my office at lunch break.

Next Wednesday I will be on holiday and Thursday will travel to Croatia. I hope for more sunshine, long walks and long painting hours in between. So nice to have something great to look forward to.

As I said, this week it’s using the new watercolors. This is the second girl done entirely with them:

Not my best work, but I very much like this yellow (called ‘golden’ which is not really gold just hansa yellow mixed with orange) and red (madder lake, which is not really madder, but alizarine). Anyway, I think they mix beautifully and give such awesome autumnal impression to her hair.

This week’s Life Book lesson has the similar color scheme. I plan to do it next week.

She Thinks Positive Update: 34-35

It’s time for She Thinks Positive Journal update. I have two girls done over the weekend. I am not too pleased with how they turned out but I am reminding myself that this journal is supposed to be totally imperfect. So here they are:



It’s a lovely sunny Monday and I enjoy it even more because it’s part of a long weekend. We are free until Wednesday. I will travel today, so I better get packing. Have a great Monday!

She Thinks Positive Journal Update: 33/120

I am continuing my work on house doodle, but in the meantime she wanted my attention:


It looks like a nice sunny Saturday. I already finished my food shopping and ritual breakfast and coffee outing. I am just having a small rest and then will head out for a run. Didn’t mean to go running today, but the day is too good not to use it to be in the sun as long as possible. Have a great Saturday!

Colored Pencil Ink Doodle: WIP update

There was not too much time to work on my doodle this morning, but I am posting a small update:

I have all the houses now, need to finish coloring and then to add more inky doodles. I started doing some doodles around the branches of the tree, simple circles, but they look cute to me. Here’s a close-up:

It’s a beautiful sunny day outside, but very cold. The morning was really cold (only 2.5 degrees C, which is around 36.5 F) but I went for a run anyway. The lake around which I usually run was covered in fog and the atmosphere was so wintery, but quite nice. I did have a mild headache when I woke up, but it disappeared after the run. So, all is good! Moreover, it’s Friday, at last! YAY!
