Creative Pursuits

Yesterday's sketch got kicked out of happening by paper work.

Tonight's been productive--I didn't realize how late it is though....or that my blog-time is actually Pacific Standard Time.  Gotta fix that somehow.

Had a few projects going on tonight. 

I like the background in this picture, it's all fuzzy/fluffy, and the front is all sharp edges and angles.

This one will be called "Stuff on top of the microwave at work."

I Love Lamps....

Discovering the "Creativity Palette" in my paint program...
In an unrelated subject, it sounds like there's a squirrel (or large mouse?) in the ceiling....and my computer is about to die (12% and dropping).  I am sans cord (and "plus squirrel"?), so I guess that's all folks.

Porch Furniture

Kind of a mess.  Can't wait to actually spend time outside.  I can level out the porch furniture and do some weeding.  But it'll have to wait til after Sunday house hunting, Vacation Arts Camp, movie night, and summer lesson planning.

It's going to be a busy week.  Looking forward to those front porch afternoons.

Plant Shopping

I went plant shopping today!  I've never tried growing strawberries, but they were only 60 cents a plant, so I thought hey, why not.  Vegetative things to draw.

We'll Call This Word Vomit.

The perils and tragedies of "real" art tossed up on the web.  So those Sargent watercolor magic paints I mentioned a few weeks are as awesome as ever...but the scanner is struggling to keep up with the colors.  I'll give it another shot, perhaps, just know that the color here is much weirder than it is in reality.

Word vomit.

It's a Jungle Out There

 Contour drawings, plant reflections.  Looking out (the window).
Au Rousseau....

Leaky Marker

Reflections and lines, drips.
Now if only I could find a Corel pen that REALLY dripped, like ran down the drawing.  If anybody knows which one will do it....well, tell me.

Shady Trees

Sometimes it's nice to sit in the car and draw.  Looking at the shadows.  Putting off the commute.
You'd think by now we'd have figured out a way to teleport.

House Near the Corner

Finding inspiration in google maps "tours," and drive-by picture-taking.
