Severe allergies prevent me from outside activities I once loved doing, including gardening. But your art keeps me company and brings me much joy.
Enjoy Life by KmyGraphic :iconsmileladybugplz: Happy-Thoughts by KmyGraphic

Especially Nice

I love all that I fave, but these are especially nice.

Cats, Dogs, and Other Critters

I'm most fond of cats (raised many, none now), but also had dogs, birds, and horses. I like observing frogs and lizards and most all animals, including certain insects. I enjoy seeing what all of you have photographed, drawn, or painted.

Traditional, Digital, Mixed, Etc.

All of these are by wonderful dA artists. I enjoy looking at them very much.

Stills

Beautiful still life by talented dA artists. My most favorite art form is still life, including that which I try to do myself.

Bio: Female, age 66. California born and raised except for 5 years in Arkansas. Was married too young and too long. I have one son, no grand children. But I'm Aunty to many nieces/nephews, a great aunty to even more, and more recently a great great to two. That makes me smile.

And... I'm candid and comfortable speaking my mind. It's how I believe we all should be. --Claudia 9/2014

Favorite Colors? ©
Medium to Light Blues,
Purples in all Hues,
Soft Sunny Yellows,
Everything Greens,
and All In Betweens.
~~Claudia 2010

My quotes, philosophies, and poetry: ©
"One thing I've learned in this long life of half joy and half sorrow,
it's Love that decides when and how it loves -- not I."
~~Claudia 6/2010

"It's not how piercing the comebacks,
but how meaningful the argument." ツ
~~Claudia 2011

"If the light be truth, I always choose the light.
If the dark be illusion in which to hide,
I choose to illuminate.
If in between I fall and must again choose,
I hope always to use the dark as the direction from which I depart, and not arrive."
~~Claudia 11/2011

Just A MessageI say,
make friends with yourself,
be at ease with yourself,
as the old adage "Wherever you go, there you are"...
You cannot leave yourself behind,
nor should you even try.
Let it go with you everywhere,
as both shadow and leader...
Learn, grow, make friends, and be at peace
with the one you first met
and will last hear with your last breath,
the person you know best...
an individual unlike anyone else
anywhere
at any time.

You're very welcome. And I hope your loneliness has gone away.  Always remember... you may feel lonely, but truth is you're never really alone... not with billions of people on this planet.  :)  But it requires weeding through anywhere from average of 2 to 500, and that's where I have a problem... always wanting the next person I meet to be just right for me as a friend, instantly, no hassles or heartbreaks.  I just don't have the energy anymore to weed through even 2.  :shrug: Maybe one day again. Soon I hope.

thank you for including my drawing, it is part of a world that exists far beyond the viewing plane and for hundreds of years before the moment it was captured.
