Meet Gus and Milo

Yesterday it rained all day but Gus and Milo were able to
stay dry under a huge umbrella they found on the deck.

Some Zens

I was signed up for a zen doodle class this weekend but unfortunately (or maybe fortunately), the instructor had to cancel so I went to the next best option - you tube. I didn't realize doodling had taken on a formal trade. Imagine that....I should have saved all my doodle work from my years of taking notes in school. Smack the word Zen in front of the doodle and it magically transforms into books you can purchase, designs you call your own and instructors getting paid to teach people how to..........doodle.

So I've started a Zen Doodle book to give it a try. Here are a few of what I did this weekend. What's nice about zen doodling is I can create while comfortably sitting on my couch half watching some boring tv show. It is quite relaxing and mind escaping so it works for me.

Virtual Eureka!

I'm trying out something new.  A Virtual Sketch meet. It's not all new to me since I work virtually during the week but the idea is to pick a spot on the map from the given location and sketch it. If you get a chance, check out the blog called The Virtual Paintout (look down along the side and you'll find it). This months virtual site is Eureka, Ca.  I strolled around on the google map and found this quaint home.

I should have kept it as a ink only sketch since I'm not crazy about the colors I added. Cheap watercolors too; won't be using those again.
