Best Pencil

I met these two young people last year in MontrĂ©al while visiting my daughter. They are full of life and love and laughter.  This September they are getting married and I am so happy for them.  My drawing does not do them justice at all, but there is a wee bit of resemblance, sort of! I enjoyed working in pencil and it was fun spending "time" with them while I drew.

 FĂ©licitation Meiji et Simon!
Avec amour

Something Beautiful


My mother-in-law is in her 80s.
She still baits her own hooks. 

Inspiration - Summer's Bounty

Color inspiration from my garden....

                                                               my sketchbook.

 Of course it turned out to be polka dots!

Polka Dotted Pinecones

I love polka dots! 

I decided to add them to some pinecones I picked up one day while walking Maxie, my American Eskimo dog. 

Tip:  Do not pick the pinecones, paint on them and display them in a closed mason jar all on the same day.  They will grow mold!
