back at my desk


 Back from holidays and finding it hard to get motivated. So what you can see on my desk is the sketch and the paints but no painting action. 


 While on holidays I always try to paint something to remind me of that day.  In this case fruit as I love walking the streets and buying from the street vendors.  


 A room with a view  ummmm directly into someones room!


Finally a pic of kitty who doesn't even have the energy to reach out and play with her toy. So I wasted lots of time taking pics of her rolling around on the mat, which explains why I achieved so little this woyww. 
But I do plan to visit lots of desks over the coming days.

  1. So looking forward to seeing you start painting your flowers. Lovely work during the holiday - guess I should take a small sketch book when I go away instead of Christmas card toppers. Could practice my faces.
    I think lots of photos of your cat is perfectly acceptable, they are such lovely creatures and can be so amusing.
    Hugs and thanks for your visit, Neet xx2

  2. Thanks for visiting me earlier. It's so hot here that's it's not easy to get motivated to being creative and that's why I resort to what I call easy crafting :-) my quilt pieces are now all joined together so I've just got to back it, sew a border around it and quilt it....easy peasy :-) Hope you find your mojo soon. Love your holiday painting.
    Hugs,

  3. I've always wanted to do a travel journal! I even bought one but never put anything in it! Love your pages and the kitty photo! They always look so cushy! In my next life, I think I want to be a spoilt cat! Have a lovely week! zsuzsa #28

  7. Your holiday sketchbooks are such a lovely idea, and perfect for capturing the atmosphere of the holiday. I hope you find your motivation soon, you look all poised and ready to go with your painting set up like that. Thank you so much for stopping by earlier, I hope you have a good week,

  8. I used to love using my sketch book and paints with Maxine when she was tiny to record special things we saw/found on holiday. Love you little pics. x Jo

  10. So Sandra, I love, your sketch! It may not have color to it yet, but it will be gorgeous when you are done! Travel journals are so much fun and, in your case, it would seem come with a bit of humor! LOLOL Love your kitty's assumed position, ohhhhh the life! :) LOL Blessings, Felicia #40

  11. I love your holiday paintings. So much more fun than postcards. Was it Vietnam you were?
    And your sketch looks lovely. It will look even more beautiful when you decide to color it. I can't wait.
    If I believed in reincarnation, I think I'd like to come back as a cat....
    Have a great week,

  13. Poor cat!

    I think we all have those post-holiday blues where it takes you a while to get back into the swing of things. Hopefully your mojo will come back soon - it is just taking an extended holiday!

    Have a good week

  16. Hi Sandra, loving your holiday pics. It always feels hard to get back in the mood for craft when you've been away but it will come back soon. Your kitty has the right idea, very sensible cat. Thanks for the visit to mine and happy woyww, Angela x 19

  17. Hi Sandra. It's always hard to get going again after holidays isn't it. I hope you had a wonderful time. I love that you sketch your holiday photos, saves having to spend ages taking them off the camera, which is what I always end up doing.
    Hugs Lisa xx

  18. Hellooooo! Welcome back, I hope you had a great time on your jollies 😃 Your watercolours are lovely, a fab memory of your trip. But I had to laugh at your cat, I feel a bit like that at the moment!

  19. Ah lovely memories in your book, fruit speaks of sunshine and warmth on a holiday doesn't it. I don't blame you for feeling slightly under motivated, you've still got your holiday groove on!

  20. glad to hear you had a good trip. I love staying in new places and have stayed in a few that had just such views. Love the water colors and look forward to seeing what you make with that bit on the desk. Hope you have a great week and thanks for stopping by my desk! Vickie #48

  21. Likewise ... back from snow and similarly unmotivated. Lunch might cheer us up? See you Wednesday?
