sunday sketches :: hello


This little guy is happy!! Probably because it’s so nice out today.

I woke up this morning and it was a cool 55 degrees. Fall is coming!

I love spring and fall more than summer and winter. I guess I just don’t like the extreme heat or cold. I tend to hibernate when it’s too cold or too hot!! Well, would it be called hibernate when it’s hot?? You know what I mean ☺ Give me cool weather every day and I’m happy!

creative tuesdays :: journey


Journey is the theme this time at Creative Tuesdays. Thanks, Michael, for this fun prompt.

Two little birds ready to fly! Just not sure where to go, I guess!


This could be me and my husband. Except in reverse. I’m usually ready to go anywhere and he takes too long to decide where. Oh, well. It all works out in the end. Any journey is usually a good one!

sunday sketches :: what’s up?


I was out of town this week visiting with family and friends. Just a quick trip up north before everyone is busy with their back to school routines.

So all I have to share this week is a little sketch of a bunny. Actually, I’ve had a hankering for carrot cake lately and it got me thinking of rabbits. My mind is like that sometimes.

sunday sketches :: how to


Yesterday, I was in a creative rut. So instead of a painting, I did an infographic sketch. This is a process I learned over the years. Maybe it will help someone else.


Or if you have a better way to flatten paper, let me know! My mom used to do watercolors. She would iron her work flat when she was done.

Me? I’m too lazy to drag out the iron and ironing board!!

putting it all together


After doodling mice all week, I put them together (for better or worse) into one drawing.


Here is my interpretation of the rhyme and the poor Old Woman with her never-ending laundry chore.

Saying hello to friends at Paint Party Friday and Illustration Friday. I’ve been absent from both of these sites for a while. Now I’m off to visit blogs and see what’s up with you! Have a good weekend!

Cute little bunny


I found this cute little bunny at a flea market. I decided to buy it and use it as a “model” in a few drawings.

Here are the first two drawings.


Then I bumped it. It fell on the floor and his little ears broke off.

And that is the end of the cute little bunny.
