I'll post a few from last week.
The darling toddler whose mouth, believe it or not, is dead on (even though I overworked the eye til it was mucked up) Something about it works and it's only a sketch and when you're sketching every day, or even 4Xper wk who cares! This is so free-ing isn't it? Oh, yeah, back to my original statement. The toddler is my grandbaby, asleep while we were babysitting (which also explains the overworked eye - the light was very dim)
The window and the door done way apart in time are of my mom's childhood home which she adores and what I would like to do someday in the not too distant future is to put the entire house together in it's proper order and setting and do a watercolour perhaps with some ribbon embroydery foxgloves in the forground. Anything's possible. Right?!
Those are some old looking hands, for sure. Dried up from honest labour but man, don't you hate seeing your mother's hands on your wrists? What's with THAT!? The really bad one is in the cutest little book I've had for ages and use now to be unobtrusive (or sneaky)It's abt 5" by 3.5"
Thank you blogger! I love that this is easy enough for Joe Idiot,(yeah, that would be me) to do. The posts below were made on the road in the prairies this fall. One road doodle was coloured on the computer as well as the Lethbridge Catholic church sketch on this post.
I've been hanging out a lot at Danny Gregory's Everyday Matters (and if I knew what I was doing I would have just been successful pasting in his url) damn, I hate that I find all of this sOo difficult. Any way. . . totally inspired by so many participants of the site I've been sketching so now I'll try posting. I forget how every single time it seems plus I'm trying something different this time. I sure hope it's easy!
I also need to figure out how to find my password so that I can comment on the creativity of everyone here.
Oh, yeah, this is for IF's "nurishment" as that is a cob of corn the poor waif is husking for herself at 1yr of age.

I wanted to add an image of "alone" to illustration Friday while I figure out this blogging stuff. Hence, a pre-done entry. Still puzzling over the how to post the entire entry. How many wks will it take for me to learn one new thing? Lord, do I feel my age and more! Sue
