Pen and Ink...and maybe some paint

Tuesday, August 21, 2012


I just noticed that I haven't posted since the last WOYWW! With school about to begin and my daughter on the verge of giving birth to her second little girl I guess I've been distracted. ;)
Well, today is a day off from work, so I sat down at my little desk to paint something for an art exchange buddy.

Hey, are any of you involved in the Sketchbook Project? I've been debating whether it might be a fun excuse to draw during study breaks. Can you still join for this year and is the due date in January 2013? Still debating.

Anyway, in an attempt to keep my water away from my computer I've relegated it to my lamp table...along with my usual glass of iced tea. In case you're wondering what's in the big blue bag on the floor (it's been sitting there for a YEAR!) it's my nursing kit, which I will be using this year...finally!

Ready to begin my drawing...

The slant top desk is just sitting there...

How is this picture different from the last one?

So, that's what I've been up to today. I've got a hankering to draw some owls, so I've been collecting images. I also want to do some painted backgrounds in my scripture journal and some actual writing.  Not sure I'll get around to all of that. I do have to interact with the family, after all!

Everyone have a great WOYWW and a great week of creating art! To see more desks visit Julia's Stamping Ground. It's tons of fun! :D



  1. You know I'm signed up for the Sketchbook Project :-) The deadline for submission is January 15th, 2013. I've got to get busy! They've been pushing the Sketchbook Project a lot recently - it seems they haven't had as much success this year with sign-ups as they expected. I bet they'd appreciate a new recruit!

    1. Yup, you're post is what got me thinking about it again. I went to the Sketchbook Project site, but the links all take you back to the same page. Is there a way to see the digital books? Maybe I'll ask over at your blog. :)

  2. I can't wait to see your owls!

    1. I found lots of WEIRD looking owls! :D

  3. You have a very cute little corner, love the piano that you use to hold everything lol

  8. I have been wanting to draw owls lately too, maybe even on my rocks!

  9. Lots of lovely things in your space today. Remember to show us the owls!
    Happy belated WOYWW!

  10. Best wishes to your family as you await a new baby! I like the little scene you painted. The Danny Gregory book (listed on your wishlist, I'm guessing that is?) is good -- I actually have a copy that I've read a couple of times and would love to send it to you as a gift, if you would like. ~ Laura #118

  11. Your work desk area looks very quaint. Congratulations on your new granddaughter to come. Blessings!

  12. How exciting that you will finally be using your nurse's kit this you can't wait! Also a new grand daughter in the offing, blessings upon your family :)
    Hugs, LLJ #71 xx

  13. Exciting times for you Lisa, I suspect drawing owls will be a distraction once your daughter starts!! Well done for separating water from computer...just keep your brushes out of the tea!

  14. I am so late in posting (got excuses, honestly) so baby could be here by now. Hope everything is ok and goes well at the time.
    Thanks for sharing your corner, your paintings and everything else - with the owls.
    Hugs, Neet #58 xx


Thanks for dropping by! I'd love to hear your thoughts! :)
