The following two sketches are pretty random. I was flipping through the book "Drawing Using the Right Side of Your Brain" and decided to try a couple of them. We had terrible weather yesterday, so it was nice to curl up in a comfortable spot and spend the afternoon drawing.

Spring is here in a big way. We are having wonderful weather today. Mild and sunny. Everyone seems to be enjoying it. It's the sort of day that makes you take your shoes off and sink your toes into the grass. I'm sitting on the back deck with a cup of coffee, living life.

Here's a black and white print of my first watercolor scene. I think watercolor is my favorite medium. The fluidity and gracefulness of the paints is so relaxing. You never know what the movement of them might produce. Plus, the paint and a good brush does a lot of the work for you. I've got a lot to learn, but I'm enjoying the process.

It was another busy Saturday. A list of chores in my hand to get done before a quick trip to the park with Mercedes, the loudmouthed dachshund. I wasn't in the mood for a walk, but the weather was beautiful. Sunlight sparkled in a clear blue sky. As I headed out the door, I grabbed my camera on a whim. So glad that I did.
As I made a point to take a deep breath and look around, (fortunately, Mercedes is a bit of an ambler, herself) here are some of the tiny treasures that waited for me.
