Memory Plant

The plant that I received from my co-workers around the world. Now I'll be challenged to keep it alive until I can safely plant it outside.

Laundry Day

It always feel good to get a big chore done for the week. I did this quick sketch while the laundry was in the wash. The guy was so into the book he was reading, he didn't even notice me.

Doodle Challenge

I did this for the Sketchbook Challenge for January. The theme was "Passing the Time Doodles".  I have a whole sketchbook devoted to my doodling time which is usually done while watching tv.

I miss you already.

Rookiepainter Challenge 33

I love finding blogs that provide you a monthly challenge. Here's one and my attempt at the still life that was given.

Sketchbook Road Trip

One of my favorite thing to do with the pups is to take them on a road trip.
Another page done for the sketchbook!

Towards the End

The deadline is Jan 31st and I have four more pages to fill in my book. I can do it especially since I have ideas for those empty pages. It's the back cover page that's still a blank in my head. Something will come up plus I could always go with typical "The End" or "Ta Da".

The Sketchbook Project 2012 - what a trip.

Almost a Virtual Paintout

The place is Summit County, Colorado and the challenge was to find a snowy scene through google mapping. After searching around I finally found something interesting to sketch. I did the needed screen shot copy but I forgot to send the google map link to my email which is the second requirement of proof.  Since there's no way of finding the exact same spot on the slopes, this ends up only here and not on the virtual paint out blog for January. Live and learn. :)

Running Across the Road

Wow....I can't believe I haven't posted in a while; nor have I sketched or water colored. I had so many plans of doing nothing but art work during my time off from work! I guess it happens to all of us. Today though, was different. I decided to go for a ride and look what crossed my path! I think this is the first one I've seen in the 6 years I've been back living in California. A stop off at a library to look up some pictures of the Roadrunner, a quick sketch and ta-da! or should I say beep-beep.
