Blue giraffasaurus. One of my mixed media friends has been playing with Carla Sondheims techniques for drawing little critters. She is drawing the cutest little creatures. So I thought I would see if i could incorporate them into my breakfast abstracts. This is the first one of this series.

Brain still works. Whew! Took three trips to Lodi Library for forms. I liked it better when Free sites on IRS for prep and filing - really were free. This year the ones Id used before kept tacking on fees. One ended up $94. No way for my simple taxes. In a snit I opted to do it myself. Glad its over. Now waiting for refund.

I will also take my friend Rachels watercolor feather to show. These should inspire us. Plus friend Linda will bring some of Daisy's dropped feathers. Thanks Daisy!

Awhile back i posted a few stitches on fabric in a frame. It was the beginning stitches of this piece. The stitches are so tiny i cant see them. But i love the pieces Jackie does. I ourchased this one. The monarchs were a gift from a friend. I appreciate this fine work.
My friend Jean and I took a little ride and a nice walk Saturday. After the tea garden we walked along the lake and found ourselves in the path of Disc Golfers playing the course. Duh. We didnt know it was a course - and worse yet - we didnt have a clue there was such a sport. Looked like fun.

In this nature sketchbook I see that I seldom use blues and purples. I sought out blueberries to fill this void. This sketch book has only 4 pages left to do. I need to pick up snother one as I really enjoy working on the Strathmore Toned Tan paper for organic subjects.
