Doodling My Love's Name

I enjoyed drawing out the name of my daughter and her fiance so much (see previous post), I decided to just doodle out my wife's name to see what I could come up with. The more I doodle on it, the crazier it got.
I had two long conversations on the phone today, one of which was with my son-in-law, the trainer, that's helping me along with my weight loss campaign. The other call I won't go into, but they gave me some time on a crazy day to use my computer to add some color to the doodle.
This was all just for fun. What do you think? Which one do you like the best? When was the last time you doodled your love's name on a piece of paper?


Here's a shot of us standing in the Redwoods together. We took some friends to see them just last Wednesday. Don't we look skinnier? It's the vertical stripes of the redwoods that make us look thinner.

I'm always partial to black and white, but the color one is nice and bright and more "girly". :) Great job as always. Love the pic of you two.. and keep on keeping on with the training. You are doing great!

Wow, that's look from the 70's! Really reminds me of that era. Very cool dude!

I haven't doodles my love's name since I was in high school and carried a notebook. Obviously I do not have your talent!

Woohoo to you two on the weight loss! I find it aint so fun until I step on that scale and realize the clothes are quite as tight anymore!
