watercolor – for vala

Just sharing a little watercolor sketch I posted on Spirit Train Chronicles a few days ago... It began as a simple idea - to loosen up my painting muscles, and say a little thank you to a friend who's been helping me lately. (The STC post explains the process more.) By the time I cleaned … Continue reading watercolor – for vala

extrasensory overload

This is the view from my office window this week. Why anyone thinks it's a good idea to plaster a 30-floor tall medieval-knight-type guy with a sword and Bud-Light robes onto an office building 3 blocks from the action is beyond me. I didn't know anyone played football with a sword... sure doesn't sound like … Continue reading extrasensory overload

Wow, it’s been over two years since I posted on this site… sheesh.

2018 has been about building.

I’ve made a few posts on my personal site, www.lesleehare.net, but have mostly been focused on writing and becoming part of the community here in Pine Lake, Georgia. It’s quite lovely here.
