Just having fun.

Cactus Monday

I was out researching this ‘Prickly Park’ for our Urban Sketching group and just had to stop for a quick sketch of this purple Prickly pear cactus. The perfect job for Cactus Monday 😄

Ink and watercolor on Arches 140# watercolor paper.

A few photos of the park. 

Quick Sketch

While I was waiting for my husband the other day I noticed the perspective of the trees in front of me and decided to do a quick sketch on a notepad in my purse.

Haiku:

           ‘Perspective in trees
             Beautiful shapes near and far

             Peaceful and quiet’

Fountain pen and ink

February 1st

A sketch from the past with a new haiku to celebrate February 1st 

Haiku:

          ‘It’s February

            Cold month with a hint of warm

            Hope is in the air’

Happy February first!

Long-stemmed Leaf

It’s not only cacti that inspire me, it’s nature in general. This leaf being a small piece of nature that grabbed my attention.

Haiku:

          ‘And yet one more leaf

            Laying on the road so quiet

           ‘Sketch me’, it yelled out’

So I did
Water-soluble ink and pencil in the sketchbook from Suzy. It has really nice paper.

Cactus Monday

I am always on the lookout for interesting Cactus when I walk and this one inspired me yesterday. 

Haiku:

          ‘Beautiful cactus

           Always an inspiration

           To enjoy daily’

Happy Cactus Monday!

Cold and Colder

How cold is it? Yesterday the low was 35 F and today is a little colder. Winter in Arizona! Snow in the mountains but none here in the valley. 

Haiku:

           ‘Even my T. Bear

             Needs a warm-y hat and scarf

             40 is cold here!’

This was a piece of art I did in 2013 and it came as a memory on Facebook today.   I love Maxine. 

It cracks me all over again because I remember the fun I had doing it.

And I haven’t changed 😂😂😂
