Acrostic Action

I was up early with the birds this morning. It must be in the air. This delightful dickcissel was singing his heart out the other day while we were birding. Couldn't resist a photo that I later (this morning) sketched. An acrostic poem leapt onto the page too.

There were shadows on the wall with the sun blazing through the tree limbs. I will be having more sofa time what with football beginning soon. This gives me time to think, believe it or not. 

Dancing on the wall
Jitterbug or Junebug
Kinetic movement

The same on tv
White, blue and red uniforms
Colts and Buffalo

In the stadium 
Skittering from end to end
The menagerie

Terrarium Blooming Tuesday

As I sat on my sofa the other day I realized I hadn't ever sketched my terrariums. So here it is. The only thing blooming is a pepperomia in the shorter terrarium. You can't see it in the sketch. You can't hardly see it with the naked eye either for that matter. It is fun to see it bloom. A first for me. 
Happy Blooming Tuesday to you all.

Animal Wednesday - Kitty

I am trying to get a sketch made for my daughter. She is turning 40 next month. Can you believe it?  Neither can I. She has asked me to paint something for her. I can never bring myself to do it. Fear of failure. Fear of rejection. Who knows why I can't seem to get it going, until now. 
This sketch reflects some of my thoughts. Not that actual painting. ha... Lets hope I can do a little better than this. This shows that I can't take my mind off the painting for too long. 
Happy Animal Wednesday.

PGA Golf

I have been working at this page for several days. My DB and I like to watch the golf matches on tv. This was the last match of the season which brings me to the finish of this page. I was fascinated by all the advertisement that the players wore. They are walking billboards.
Did you have something interesting to watch on tv this weekend?

Sketching again...Many Thanks Teri

Back in July, the 26th to be exact, I got to visit with Blogging Friend Teri and her Family. It wasn't the first time that Teri and I have met. It is was so much fun. In addition to the fun of seeing each other again and getting to visit was that Teri gave me a sketch book. One like she likes to use. 
I must say I have been having a good time sketching with it.  
I haven't quite mastered the technique of how you add watercolor to these pages. 
I have had such a good time sketching though. Teri has once again ignited my sketching. 
Thank you again Teri for sharing your family, time and this fun sketchbook.
If you need a little inspiration to get you to sketch more pop over to her blog
