Marissa's Bubble Gum Egg

Marissa's friends are on her case constantly about chewing bubble gum and blowing bubbles, but she doesn't listen. On this day she blew one too many. When she blew, the bubble expanded out of her mouth, turned into an egg, and sprouted a flower. It is stuck to her lips. She wishes she had listened to her friends. Now what's Marissa to do?...What does a bubble gum egg hatch anyway? More bubble gum?
And what's with that hair? Maybe I should have called her Medusa! :)
Another character born of my quirky doodles in the Handbook sketchbook with watercolor/ink pencils. I think she's fun and she will figure things out eventually.
I've now completed 2 more sketchbooks with quirky doodles, some painted and some not. I have about 12 books full now and have just started 2 more, a Moleskine sketchbook and a WC book.
I 've missed a few days drawing/painting this week. I think I'm beginning to want to do something else now, but it's fun and I won't completely stop, maybe just mix something else in.
For instance, I have an oil portrait of my beloved little Pekingese that I started about 12 yrs ago, right after she had to be euthanized. I got it almost finished, and couldn't bear to complete her eyes and muzzle. I have uncovered it and hung it where I can see it, and I'm ready to finish it now. I will post a picture as soon as I do. :)
I also want to start a book with my doodle characters and their stories, and I want to do some linoleum block carving and printing as soon as I can clear a space in my art nest. Anybody else have an art nest? LOL
Anyway, those are three immediate projects that I want to start working on. I will share pictures as I do them. :)
Hope Marissa made you smile! :)
PS-I apologize that the paragraphs are all run together. I've tried everything and can't get them to seperate. It's perfect where I compose it, but when I put it on preview or publish, they all run together. I've tried re-spaceing and moving things around.

Great picture. Looking forward to seeing the other things you talk about. I had the problem with paragraph breaks at one stage but it seems to have cleared up now.
