Tagged: Random Stuff

I took a picture of this grumpy looking fella on my last trip to the zoo.  I did this drawing in colored pencil in my everyday sketchbook.   My intention was to do this again using more textured paper.  If you click on the picture you can see the full-sized scan. Unfortunately I can never manageContinue reading “Tagged: Random Stuff”

More Public Drawing: EDM 60-Draw an Auto

Here is a sketch I did the other day while sitting outside of my favorite coffee shop. I’ve always had trouble drawing cars. I think it’s because I’m not really interested in them. But I realized that I could do this for Everyday Matters Challenge 60-draw an automobile, or part of one. It was funContinue reading “More Public Drawing: EDM 60-Draw an Auto”

More Daffodils: EDM 76

I have only a slightly sunburned neck and these daffodils to remind me of the glorious 78 degree sunny Saturday last. Now its cold and rainy again. Anyway, enough with my complaints about the manic-depressive weather patterns around here. I sat and worked on more flower drawings. This is the best of the lot. IContinue reading “More Daffodils: EDM 76”

Drawing in Public

These little sketches may not seem like much, but to me they represent a personal victory. I finally got up the nerve to draw in public again. When I was a teenager I drew all the time. I drew during class, during lunch, on the bus. I can’t remember when I actually stopped. Probably whenContinue reading “Drawing in Public”

Fasten your seatbelts…we may be encountering some turbulence.

The U.S. Democratic race is turning out to be quite a roller coaster ride. I can see myself getting really, really tired of all of this drama by the end of February. I already feel like screaming every time I hear the work “change.” It makes me cringe to even type it. Oh well, I’mContinue reading “Fasten your seatbelts…we may be encountering some turbulence.”

Paying Attention to My Keys

I don’t pay much attention to my keys. Sure, I keep track of where they are (most of the time) and I handle them everyday. I even occasionally use them as an indicator of my stress level: ME: Where the @!#&*!!! are my keys?! DH: Um, they’re in your hand, hon… ME: Oh. It wasContinue reading “Paying Attention to My Keys”

Another go at the phone…

After my little snit about my supposedly sucky drawing, I had another go at the phone. It’s such a lovely phone. It has so many sexy curves and such a satisfying heft to it when you pick up the receiver. I love the way the light hits it. The more attention I give to it,Continue reading “Another go at the phone…”

EDM Challenge 11 – Draw Glasses or Sunglasses

I love having these prompts to work with. It’s fun to take my list and march around the house looking for things to draw. These glasses are pretty cool.  They belong to my husband. I think they are from the 50’s.  Not that he’s that old.  They are pristine, with no scratches on the lenses.Continue reading “EDM Challenge 11 – Draw Glasses or Sunglasses”
