Discoveries

I went to JoAnn Fabrics this weekend and made a wonderful discovery. They had Micron pens in six-packs of colored pens, with two different sizes. In the past I have had to drive an hour to the nearest store to purchase these pens that I find indespensible. They are so easy to work with and they are acid free etc. Not only that but JoAnns was having a sale (aren't they always) and I had a coupon so I got them for half price. Now that really made me happy.

My bil took a fantastic picture of a Carolina Wren and sent it to us. I couldn't resist drawing it in blue. It made me happy to see one of my favorite birds so well photographed. It is a blue bird of happiness. I hope you all made some fantastic discoveries this weekend and are happy and well rested.

This is a fantastic renedering of those happy birds. I always get those pens too and my big purchase for the week was to buy a table top OTT light-I couldn't see anymore lol. I love it for sewing, sketching and reading. How did I ever get along without it!

This drawing reminds me of the sketches my great-grandmother would do--at once clean and incisive and full of life; somehow the whole landscape suggests itself in the image.
