Thursday Throwback from 7 years ago.

@southfloridaphotos and I ventured to Skunk Ape Research Center at Big Cypress.

There inside we saw mostly reptiles, birds and insects who were rescued or from owners who couldn't take care of them.

I've seen anacondas on TV and pictures but never saw or held one up-close. And I got my wish. The face you see is not a sign of fear, just amazement at the shear strength of this animal. Those muscles were no joke around my neck.

When the weather gets comfortable I’m hoping for us to visit soon.

Trying to get back my art inspiration at a park. Needed to get some fresh air and chill. #art #nature #park #ftlauderdale #gettingbackintoartmode #artmode #inspiration #tryingnewthings #sketchbook #outside #drawing #solitude

Yesterday my hubby rescued this cutie pie after backing up into the drive way after work. We were psyched!!! We never saw a baby softshelled turtle before. Omg he/she was cute. And the shell felt so delicate. I took a few pics with the macro lens on my Nikon to get some detailed shots. Omg he was so cute. Afterwards we placed him in the lake in back of our house. We hope you are ok little guy!

All of a sudden had this urge to draw giraffes. Honestly this is my first time drawing giraffes like this. Just used a regular pencil as I was doing ideas for my personal branding and all I sudden I had giraffes in my mind.
I can not tell you how long it’s been since I drew. Been drawing since I was little non-stopped. Stopped after I graduated college. Had this time of drama and weirdness in my life. Been up and down with my drawings. Never consistent. A lot is my head but I’m not letting them out. So again this is a start. Feels like it never left me.

It’s pretty emotional. #art #drawing #fightingtheartistblock #drawingagain #animals #giraffes #sketch

Been a while catching smaller baby iguanas. My goodness they are breeding like crazy. They are cute when they are small though. It was pretty feisty at first but eventually calmed.

Did some coffee hopping. First stop @grindcoffeeproject. Needed to chill and try out some coffee joints I’ve never been to. Had a hot mocha with doubles (roti incased with some delicious ingredients).
