It's a what.....................

Cowgirl it's an Attitude.
 This isn't what a normally do, however every now and then it fun to try something new.  I drew this last weekend while I watched my son wrestle in a high school wrestling tournament.  They usually last all day and with all the noise and excitement this is about as involved as it gets.

Its almost here! (Santa Claus that is)

I seldom end up where I wanted to go.  But almost always end up where I need to be.


Merry Christmas 2009

These are a couple of drawings from my moleskine.  I posted the rat before but my pages are never really finished I often go back and add, and add, and add.  The boot is the finished Christmas card printed on kraft card stock and hand colored.  I have just a few to finished before they all go in the mail.  I was hoping to have them finished last week but it just didn't happen.

The most comfortable shoes I own

May the spirit of the season warm your heart all year long.
I finally finished the drawing for our Christmas cards this year.  I decided to use kraft paper cards and envelopes for the finished design.  I have them all printed just finishing the hand coloring but hopefully in the mail tonight.

We did get the snow!  And so did most of the rest of the country.  The last two days were snow days (a teacher's favorite holiday).  I love snow days but wish I had been more productive.  It has been bitterly cold and all I really wanted to do was curl up on the couch.   I am hoping to finish my Christmas cards and get my tree up today.

Expecting 10"-12" of snow tonight..........

If the only prayer you said in your whole life was "thank you" it would be suffice.  Meister Eckhart

This is the pattern on my folks dinner-ware.  It is a Currier and Ives print I believe.  I really like the classic look of this blue and white pattern.  Hope your holiday season is a blessed and joyful one!

With the prediction of that much snow all my students and my self are hoping for a snow day.  Those unexpected holidays are the best.

Knowledge or imagination..........

"Imagination is more important than knowledge, for knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world and all there ever will be to know and understand."  Albert Einstein

Ok here is another quick sketch in the creepy category.  I am not afraid of much but I am definitely afraid of mice or rats.  I think it is the fact that they can move so quickly and sometimes it seems they are running towards you and not away.

It has been a rough few days...........

Ok here are two images from my lesson plan book.  The second drawing was for EDM "Creepy".  I hope everyone had a happy Thanksgiving and I wish you a healthy, happy holiday season.

I have a new moleskine.  I really like the larger size and the thicker paper.  I will have some images very soon!  Keep checking back.
