Virtual Sketch Date pears


I joined the Virtual Sketch Date this week.

I have posted my pears on both of my blogs because I have not yet figured out how to connect up.

Coloured pencil on bristol board 9 x 12.

Poodle Portraits


Working on some more ideas with Lily.
Today I came across this great song on YouTube about Vampires and creativity.

Time Passing By


I see I haven't been by since April.


In April my life was swept up into the life of my father who was in a seniors home suddenly after ninety one years of a long life.


He passed away in July and I am just getting back to normal everyday activity again. Blogging to myself has been the last thing I felt like doing. But today I posted a project process over on my paintingpuppies blog. So I decided to update this one as well. So what to say?


Summer is over and the fall has enveloped the city streets around me. I take my dog to the park when the sun shines. The air is crisp and the sunlight turns the maples to glorious golds and reds. I can't stop clicking my camera and loading up my hard drive memory with photos. I am addicted to taking pictures.

Maybe this is a good thing for an old soul to be doing with her days. I can't get enough of the visual beauty around me even though the news is full of gloom and doom.
This little photo is from a sidewalk garden along my dog walking route.
While Tamara was sniffing I saw this and could not resist it.
