Rainbow Owl
This is a page from the adult coloring book Free Spirit that I colored with Prismacolor colored pencils. I will be framing it and giving it to my 20-year-old daughter when she gets her first apartment soon.



Made with pride by the DeviantArt community BROWSE ALL ART

I haven't updated this journal in over 2 years!  Well, a lot has changed, like always.  

I moved in with Don here in Tower, MI on February 3rd, 2015.  We got together on December 11, 2014 and we've been together since and we're perfectly happy.  I've finally found somebody who knows how to treat me right!  

I worked at the Petoskey Walmart as a cashier for 8 months, but I got sick of the drive, which was a 90 mile round trip 5 days a week.  I was spending all my money on gas!  So I left there and started working as a cashier at a gas station in Indian River, which is only 16 miles from here.  I've been there since October 10, 2015 and I don't plan on leaving.  I like the job and the coworkers.  The managers aren't dicks.  Usually I work completely alone.  I always close, Thursdays to Sundays, with Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays off.  It's nice to have a predictable schedule.

I've gone to a lot of concerts since I moved away from Alpena.  The first was Warped Tour 2015 in Detroit with my daughter Cathy, Don, and our friends Chrissy and Sean.  Then Don and I went to see Mushroomhead at Streeter's in Traverse City.  Then Cathy and I went to see We the Kings in Detroit last year.  Then I took Cathy and my son Tony to see Avatar at The Machine Shop in Flint.  Next was Dope at The Machine Shop with Don, and then last weekend Don and I went to Detroit for a whole weekend to see We the Kings the first night and AJR the second night.  They were both playing at the same venue, so we decided to stick around for both shows.  It was a really fun weekend.  

My daughter Cathy works in nursing at Tendercare in Alpena now.  My son Tony was working at another branch of the same gas station I work at in Hillman, but he started dating a heroin addict and screwed up his whole life.  He quit that job, lost the house he was renting, lost his dog, and now lives with her in Petoskey and has gone through 3 jobs there as far as I know.  Right after Thanksgiving he tried to commit suicide and ended up in Ann Arbor on life support until they got all the pills out of his liver.  It didn't wake him up, though.  We're hoping he's not shooting up heroin with her, but nobody knows.  He got her pregnant, but she killed the baby with heroin, and that also did not wake Tony up.  He refuses to speak to me because I tried to talk some sense into him, so I guess if that's how he wants it, that's how it will be.  It's all a bad situation, but I can't do anything about it.  

So anyway, my whole adult life I lived in apartments and was not allowed to have pets.  Now I live in a house in the country that Don owns, so there is no bossy landlord.  We have 2 dogs, a cat, a corn snake, a mouse, 2 rats, a rabbit, 3 chickens and a rooster, lol.  Our first dog, who we've had for almost 2 years, is a full-blooded border collie named Tug.  We got him from my mom's friend over in Posen.  He's 6 years old.  Our cat is a black cat named Sammy and he's just over a year old.  He was born here.  The rabbit is named Blackie, and of course, is black, and came from Don's brother Dave.  I bought the rats, a set of brothers, Ethan and Malcolm, from the pet shop in Petoskey.  That's where the mouse, Medusa, came from, too.  The corn snake, Cheeto, came from a friend of Don's sister Becky's who was giving him away.  We got the chickens as chicks from Tractor Supply in Cheboygan almost 2 years ago and they give us a lot of eggs.  The rooster was bought from the neighbor.  We didn't name them because they all look the same.  Our newest dog is Eevee, a corgi/beagle mix we got just 1 week ago when we came home from Detroit.  She was being given away by a woman here in Tower.  We're housebreaking her because that woman didn't bother.  She's 4 1/2 months old.  It's great to be allowed to have pets!  We aren't getting anymore now, though, lol.    

We are still doing daily vlogs on YouTube, after all this time.  We don't plan on stopping, even though after 2 years we still only have 213 subs and only get about 30 views per video.  Oh well.  I like doing it and it's kind of like a live video journal, so if nobody wants to watch them, so what?  They're at if you care.

I guess that's about all.  I've just been working and going to concerts.  Oh and I also started going to Mackinac Island every summer for a day visit, too.  I took Cathy last year.  Don couldn't go because he was laying phone line at his job with his twin brother Dan.  That job is over now, so he can go with me this upcoming summer.  I used to work and live there, so I really like going just to be a fudgie for a day.  When Don was working for Dan, though, they had to go to Indiana to do some jobs the first summer, so they were gone for 4 days for that, and then last year they had to go to Colorado to pick up a Case 560 machine they bought to do work with, so they were gone close to a week that time.  I just stayed home and worked.

As far as art goes, I've been using adult coloring books to practice my colored pencil shading and I have been using the book, "500 Drawing Prompts."  I need to draw more, though.

I am a 41-year-old female living in northern Michigan. I love dogs, dragons, rats, and wolves. I like to read, write, proofread and edit things, listen to music, travel, watch movies, go to concerts, etc. I'm also a daily YouTube vlogger! I have been drawing since I was about 6. I had 4 years of high school art classes and a little bit of private tutoring the year after I graduated, as well as some college art classes. I hope to get as good as some of the people I see on here. I like to draw, paint ceramics, use Photoshop, make dream catchers, etc. My tools of the trade are Photoshop, my Wacom tablet, Prismacolor colored pencils and Prismacolor markers.

I noticed you liked my Lucario Brawl Screenshot from back in the day, I recently decided to paint a high res digital copy of it and thought you'd like it. Check it out! [link]
