Pen and Ink...and maybe some paint

A bit of sketching...

It dawned on me yesterday that my blog has become more of a family photo blog rather than an art blog. Well, I think there's room here for both, but I'd like to get back into doing more art. I was watching some "sketchbook flips" on YouTube and one young lady encouraged me to just keep on sketching. Try to do some every day, but not in a compulsive way.

This first sketch reminds me of why I don't like drawing with pencil! I always smear it. This guy is a little out of perspective, but I felt like I had accomplished something just by drawing him/her.

I switched to pen to draw this quirky birdhouse. Both of the photos I used as models are from Paint My Photo.

What have you drawn lately?

Shalom and goodnight! :)


  1. I like BOTH! I haven't been drawing lately, but I'd like to. There are so many excuses not to hunker down and begin, aren't there?

  2. I like both too! Seeing your sweet family, and your artwork.... I enjoy your talent. :)

  3. I LOVE this deer! This peaceful animal is drawn by a peaceful friend of the creator. And there is NOTHING "wrong" in this clear and living sketch!

    The bird-house is a mirror of you open house for all these little human birds, who visit you and enjoy you - and your food :)


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