Might as well face it I'm additicted to doodling

I sure have been bitten by the doodling bug!  I can't seem to stop doing my mermaid and flower fairy faces.  They brighten my mood and make me happy.  A simple pleasure.

I thought I would share one with you and show it morphing from a painted graffiti background to a colored mermaid's face doodle. 

Laying down the doodle

Adding her peepers and lipstick along with a few more details and tresses

Giving her more hair and her pearls of wisdom

Coloring her hair and adding a little more detail

I will most likely add a few more trinkets to her hair, it seems a bit thin (like mine, ha!).  It was after 1:00 in the morning when I did this so I will revisit her again.  

It has come to my attention that I need a cushion on that studio chair.  When I am doodling I get transported to another world and I find it a great pain reliever when I am dealing with my chronic pain.  I love getting lost in creating the doodle but little did I know that chair was creating such a pain in my rear!  OMG!  I will definitely be on the lookout for a nice coordinating soft cushion for my butt!

I think I am facing a doodle addiction but I really don't care for I am under it's opuim-like spell.  I say, "drift on the dream, follow your bliss..." 

Music in the studio this week was more Sheryl Crow...I want to soak up the sun...while there still is some!

Forever in art,  Jessica

your doodling is making me feel like in a dream and i don't want to wake up...like in an enchanted forest, with fairies and mermaid, every thing is possible in dream...
