IF_Hitched WIP

I feel like I have been away forever! So sorry, I have been having health issues. I thought about posting something new everyday for the past few weeks but just never seemed to get to it. I feel so much better now that I have posted something. I hope that I can keep up and post more often now. I apologize to those of you who follow my blog. I have let you down. I even lost a follower :(...

When I first started blogging I posted fairly often, but this year I have been lackadaisical. (Big word for the day ;D) Lax, unmotivated, not quite enthusiastic, un-energetic, etc. etc. etc.  
or dare I say it....

maybe I've just been really, really tired, but that goes back to lack of motivation right?

Anywho, I love my blog and I want to keep it alive, therefore I must provide the "food" for my readers to feed it with. So I am making myself yet another promise to post more often. There I wrote it down, so I have to do it, right? Of course I think I haven't written it down before and obviously not followed through!

I also want to do Illustration Friday more often. Why?  Well, for one thing it keeps me posting more often, also because I am a creature of habit and right now I am out of the habit of blogging. But mostly because, IF pushes me to draw and paint things that I probably would not normally come up with.

When I first started doing IF, I posted every single week for, wow, I can't even remember how long now, a long time. Then I got out of the habit. Now I just think about posting. For example this idea was for the prompt "Puzzled", she was going to be a flying pig with wings. Then I was going to adapt it to the prompt "Jump" because I never even got past the idea of it for Puzzled and she was going to be jumping into the water with water wings on. Now it is hopefully going to work for the prompt "Hitched".  What's she hitched to, you ask? You tell me...

So, if you are still reading, this is where I ask you to comment and tell me what/who you think "Gertie" the pig has hitched a ride on?

Thanks for being wonderful, patient and kind!!!
