Project 365, Hearts, Day #212 (942)

Hello,

I hope you enjoyed your day.  Here is my heart for day #212 (942).



Another one of my favorite types tonight.  I don't know why I enjoy these so much but I do.  

We had a lazy day today.  All the days of hiking caught up with us and we were all pretty beat.  We did drive around and see an old small town, it is also where they filmed part of Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.  There were just a few buildings there but is was pretty cool.  

Tomorrow we start our journey back home.  We stop in Las Vegas again for one night, to help break up the trip.  So that's all for now.

Have a great evening and thanks for stopping by.

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Hearts, Day #211 (941)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my heart for day #211 (941).


Today we walked the 'Narrows' in Zion.  It is a five mile long trail up the river bank.  I'm not sure how far we got exactly, but we did walk 2 hours in, so four hours round trip.  I decided to draw my heart in the sand and take a photo there.  I thought that would be a cool heart for the day.  It was at a point where the river did narrow and the rocks/cliffs were very cool.  I tried to get a photo of the 'narrows' along with my heart but it was a little tricky.  You do get a glimpse of the canyons around us.

That's all for me.  Thanks for stopping by and a have a good night.

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Hearts, Day #210 (940)

Hello,

I hope you had a nice day.  Here is my heart for day #210 (940).


Another design tonight using the same technique as yesterday.  This time I left in my original sketch as well.  I was inspired by the clouds tonight and wanted to create those stacked layers.

That's all for now.  We had a nice day in Zion, extremely hot, but nice.  We are hanging outside now and going to start a game.

Have a good evening and thanks for stopping by.

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Hearts, Day #209 (939)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my heart for day #209 (939).


Another one of my favorite types tonight.  I like to draw a design first and then create the heart around it, making the original design negative space.

We arrived in Zion today.  We are all set up and taking our first hike tomorrow.  We did go and check out the park a little and take a few photos.  More stunning scenery here and we are looking forward to our day tomorrow.

That's all for me.  Have a good evening and thanks for stopping by.

Take care,
Kelly

Hello,

I hope you had a nice day.  Here is my heart for day #208 (938).


An illustration for tonight.  We had a great day of white water rafting and Mols and I went zip lining as well, Chris sat out on the zip lining.  We also did one small hike.  It was a great day and we finished with a really nice dinner at the lodge at Bryce Canon.  We move on to Zion tomorrow.

That's all for me, we are relaxing and watching a movie now.

Thanks for stopping by and have a good day.

Take care,

Project 365, Hearts, Day #207 (937)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my heart for day #207 (937).




Chris and Mols went fishing today after our gorgeous hike through Bryce Canon.  We went to Tropic Reservoir which was just about 20 minutes from our RV site.  I decided to do my heart with the pine cones laying around.  I took that photo and decided it looked a little lonely, so I added a heart with stones.  So a nice pair of hearts for tonight.

That's all for now.  We are hanging out and playing Yahtzee and getting ready to cook dinner.  Have a good evening and thanks for stopping by.

Take care, 
Kelly

Project 365, Hearts, Day #206 (936)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my heart for day #206 (936).


A simple spiral of hearts for tonight.  I am really tired again, from the drive, and I think just the hiking is catching up with me.  

Today we drove from Capitol Reef to Bryce Canyon.  It was about a three hour drive along national scenic route12.  It was absolutely scenic and breathtaking and also down right scary to me.  Some of the roads are right along the cliffs and there is nothing between you and the cliff except the occasional reflector post to let you know where to stay on the road.  At one point you were literally on top of the mountain and there was a cliff on both sides of you.  I have to say my anxiety kicked in on those roads.  We made it fine and did a little exploring of Bryce Canyon.  We drove  in and stopped at two of the view points.  You drive along wooded areas and can't see anything unless you pull off to the viewing roads.  Then when you get to the end of those roads 'wow', there is the canyon.  Beautiful, amazing and scary to me again.  You are on the side of the canyons and sometimes there are fences and sometimes not.  It's the not times that freak me out, especially when people like to walk off the path and get close to the edge just to get a photo.  My anxiety was in high gear then.  Simply stunning scenery though.  

Well that's enough of my tales for tonight.  Have a good evening and thanks for stopping by.

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Hearts, Day #205 (935)

Hello,

I hope you had a nice day.  Here is my heart for day #205 (935).


We had another great day at Capitol Reef.  We did a couple more hikes, had another picnic and saw amazing scenery.  My hearts tonight are reminiscent of some of the scenery.  The mountains have these spire looks to them.  It's hard to describe but totally amazing.  Well that's all for me, I need to get this posted.  It takes about 45 minutes to get a post actually posted, because of the service.  So that's all for now.  Have a good evening and thanks for stopping by.

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Hearts, Day #204 (934)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my heart for day #204 (934).


We hiked in Capitol Reef today.  It was a beautiful day and just stunning scenery.  Everywhere you turn there is something just as amazing as where you were before.  It's kind of crazy.  I decided on our first walk I would see if I could find some stones that look like hearts.  These are some of the ones I found.  The two small ones I took with me but the larger one I did not.  I also took that photo on the big camera, so I had to take a photo of the screen image with my iPad, in order to show you the heart.  It was a good size rock, that's why I decided to put my shoe in there for a size reference.  Well we are all pretty tired tonight from the sun and the hikes, so perhaps we will get to bed early.  

Thanks for stopping by and have a great night!

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Hearts, Day #203 (933)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my heart for day #203 (933).


We arrived at Capitol Reef, Utah today.  It was a long trip from Vegas, 5 plus hours, but not to bad of a trip.  It is beautiful here.  We arrived at out RV spot and the view is amazing.  I have a picture below of what we see from our spot.  My heart tonight is rather simple and I'm sure it is similar to something I've done before, but I don't look back to check to see what I've done, so I'm not sure.




A couple pictures of our view and that's all for me.  Thanks for stopping by and have a good night.

Take care,
Kelly

I long day of traveling for us, a few mishaps today.  We are in Vegas tonight and actually have even a longer day of driving tomorrow.  A simple heart tonight but I like the way this one turned out.  That's going to be all for me.  Have a good evening and thanks for stopping by.

Project 365, Hearts, Day #200 (930)

Hello,

I hope you had a nice Sunday.  Here is my heart for day #200 (930).


A really simple one tonight.  It was a long day of getting ready for our RV trip.  It was also a very hot and muggy day here, which is odd for us.  We also got a lot of rain, which we need, so no complaining there.  All I had left for tonight was a simple one.  I was thinking of adding more but couldn't think of anything.

Thanks for stopping by and have a good night.

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Hearts, Day #198 (928)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my heart for day #198 (928).



We just returned home from a day at Disneyland.  Today is the actual 60th anniversary of when Walt Disney first opened Disneyland!  It was cool to be a part of the day.  They have special parades and fireworks throughout the year to help celebrate but today they had a few extra things to make the day more special.  We had a really nice time.  We enjoyed some drinks and food at the Carthay Circle restaurant and I had an extra napkin that I decided to incorporate in my heart design.  My heart is made up of declcious tomatoes from our garden.  They tast just amazing when they come from your garden.

That's all for me I need to get this posted.  Thanks for stopping by.

Take care,
Kelly

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my heart for day #196 (926).


Another relatively simple group of hearts tonight.  Lots of driving and running for me today and I'm pretty tired.  It's funny how driving around can make you tired.  I know I haven't been getting enough sleep and it's starting to catch up with me as well.  That's all for me.  Have a good evening and thanks for stopping by.

Take care,

Today's heart is a hope for strength and love to a family that lost their son to soon.  I am not that good with words or expressing myself, so I will just let my drawing speak.  

That's going to be all for me tonight.  I hope you have a good night.

Take care,

Project 365, Hearts, Day #193 (923)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my heart for day #193 (923).


I decided to incorporate the same technique as the last few days but make it an overall pattern.  I have been focusing on just the heart but it's nice to do a complete composition.  The heart may be a little harder to see in this one but its there.  Well that's all for tonight.  I had a very nice weekend and I hope you did as well.  Thanks for stopping by.

Take care,
Kelly

Similar technique tonight as the last two days.  These are interesting to me, so I'll play around some more with them.

I had a nice day with Chris, running errands, doing a little work and going for a nice walk.  I'm a little tired now, so that's all for me.  Thanks for stopping by!

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my heart for day #189 (919).


A quick bunch of hearts tonight.  I couldn't find inspiration, my mind was blank.  I started with the little heart first and then went from there.  I'm at a lull again and finding it hard to come up with new ideas.  This is the challenge of this project.  I'll keep going though and try to do my best.

That's all for me .  Have a good evening and thanks for stopping by.

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my heart for day #188 (918).


I like this one tonight, a little fun and funky pattern.  Relatively simple but I used my double line technique, which makes it more visiably pleasing to me.  

Well that's all for me tonight.  Have a good evening and thanks for stopping by.

Take care,

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my heart for day #187 (917).


A free form drawing again tonight.  There are three hearts in this one.  One was a 'happy accident', and the other two were intentional.   Trying for a more abstract look with the hearts but I still feel I want them to be 'visible'.  I guess I can't loosen up that much ; ).   Well that's all for now.  Thanks for stopping by.

Take care,
Kelly

Hello,

I didn't think about this one tonight.  I went right with the marker to the paper.  I have been sketching things out in pencil lately.  It was nice to not think about things so much and just see what happens.  I like the way it turned out.  That's all for me.  I hoped you had a great holiday weekend!  Thanks for stopping by.

A yogurt pop with chocolate sprinkles.  This is a fun one again because I get to eat the dessert when I'm done.  It was a little melted by the time I finished and took my pictures but it still tasted good.  : )
That's all for tonight.  Thanks for stopping by.

Some fun bubbles tonight.  Very simple but I like it better than yesterday's.  I definitely like the multiple lines. That's all for me.  I have to go to the airport with Alyssa, she has a friend visiting this week.  Have a good evening and thanks for stopping by.

Take care,
