Animal Wednesday - Annie

I want to introduce you to our new dog, Princess Anna VonAnderson aka Annie. I have done some sketches of her but my crazy photo program is fritzing on me. 
She has a big heart. You can even see it on the outside.
To read a little more about her you can go here.
Happy Animal Wednesday.

Animal Wednesday - Vinny

As Wednesday is traditionally Animal day I thought I would post sketches I did of Vinny while he was staying with us. He is a great guard dog. He kept the squirrels and rabbits, mentioned in my previous post, at bay. 
He would take a break occasionally and I would try to sketch him. He is the sweetest boy dog I know. 
He had a stuffed bunny that he would sleep with and waller from time to time. Great companion dog.
Happy Animal Wedensday.

Rascally Rabbits

Rabbits are trying to take over our garden. I went outside and this one just sat there looking at me. It then reared up on it's hind legs. I wonder what that means in rabbit speak?
Have a good week.

Friday Fan

A lady gave me a pen holder that she made. Such a thoughtful thing to do. The pen I have sketched is the type of pen I like for writing. I draw with it sometimes too but the ink runs when you add water. Sometimes that isn't a bad thing.
This time of year I get out my ceramic pumpkin with mice poking their heads out. They are cheerful little creatures. 
I hope you all have a fine weekend.

Calm Sketching Time

I hope that this weekend brings you a bit of calm.
Some time for some mindless sketching. It seems I have been having an abundance of time for this. 
Happy Weekend everyone.

Noticing Autumn

Despite all the football I have not been ignoring the changing of the seasons.  I love autumn. It is a time of year that I feel like I can totally relax. Enjoy the garden. Chase after migrating birds. When I am out a lot I find the falling leaves captivate my attention. It seems to me that trees always herald the beginning of autumn's shorter days waving flags of colorful shapes and hues.
On the leaf below I found a gall. I have no idea what creature inhabited this gall. The leaf was thrown to the ground. I opened the gall and sure enough there were a few tiny, smaller than rice, white wiggly worms. I wonder what sort of tiny beasty this was. One of the mysteries of autumn.
I hope your week is filled with interesting autumnal mysteries.

Football Entertainment

Since football season started...
I have had the major doodles. 
While my home team is the Colts.
I keep an eye on other teams through out the league. My Grands live in WI so I root for the Packers. 
I really like the Broncos too. Not only because the former Colts quarterback, Peyton Manning,  plays there but I was out there one year when Elway was taking the Broncs to the Superbowl. It was great fun. I have friends that live in Denver. 
My Son has always been a Dolphins fan. My boss loves the Saints QB because he went to her alma mater, Purdue.  Purdue is in IN so I have to be for them too. 
Is there anyone else out there into football like I am?

Animal Wednesday - Horsefly

This summer there seemed to be lots of horse flies around. Luckily there weren't any females trying to take a bite out of me. 
Happy Animal Wednesday.
