Animal Wednesday - Hummer

Sitting on the patio watching for the hummers to come in to the feeder made me want to try to draw the scene. I got the feeder and a poor facamile of the bird. I used colored pencils. The green of the surrounding trees made everything clear look green. Happy Animal Wednesday.

Cactus Monday - Echinocactus scheeri

I am so glad to be able to participate in Cactus Monday today. While my computer was down I did more painting and drawing. That is one good thing about not having a computer. I missed seeing all that everyone else has done. I am slowly making my way around to all the blogs I like to read. See yours soon...

Cactus Monday - Cintia Knizei

The picture of this little cactus without the flower looked like a blob . It didn't even have any spines. So I had to do the flower. I like the way the flower turned out but the gravel in the background, not so good. I need to practice backgrounds, or just disregard them. Happy Cactus Monday to all of you Cacuteers.

OSI Prompt - Folly

Without a good trim
these limbs became my folly
cheering every spring.

I wrote this after reading the prompt for this week at One Single Impression.
For more poetry go to OSI and enjoy the words.
