One Eyed Exercises :)

the other week Jenny, Todd, and Todd's Kids (lily and desmond) did some
'one eyed' drawing' exercises. it was Jenny's idea and it was great fun.

this is Jenny's....i call him 'bobo foot'
This is Desmond's cyclops...complete with pen in pocket

This is Lily's submission based on some that Jenny did at an earlier date...

todd did this during an 'all staff' meeting at work :)

ditto from above :)

this is a collaboration...todd did the picture...Jenny colored...she's
one of the best color-ers

Just Fun!

the color samples in the painting section of wal-mart are free to take. i learned they are fun to use on playful art projects. :)

she colors me

she colors me with markers and pens,
my splotchy paint makes her smile.
and now it seems we're really good friends,
we've been at this now just awhile...

her ideas, she shares, so i carve and i cut,
with out regard for a thing.
i encourage her to play like a child,
rejoicing in each scribbled thing....

Picnic Guy

Funny looking face?  Yep!
Last night, while talking on the phone, I noticed there was just enough light and shadow on the drywall texture of the walls to make objects and shapes appear -- the same way you would watch clouds.
I saw some funny faces.  This is one of them!

I added the PICNIC stuff to honor that Todd has designated 2011 as the year of the picnic!
If you haven't been on a picnic lately, GO!
Whether outdoors or on the middle of your living room carpet, picnics are FUN!

Eeek! More Cats!

I'm not sure why I keep drawing cats.
Maybe it's because you can't really go wrong with drawing a cat.
They can be terribly wonky and funny but somehow the brain accepts it: cool cat.

Birds good...Donkeys Great!

jenny and i went to the bracken bird farm. they have an amazing assortment of birds. outside of the main store lies an area for their camel, turkeys, scottish highland cow-things, regular cows, and yes, their DONKEYS. i think we savored each part of the visit, but the highlight may have been when the donkeys who seemed to be hiding behind their slat wood and tin shelter slowly made their way up to the fence where we were standing. why would they do that? two beauties just walked up stood there and stared at us as we fawned over them and spake tender words of affection to them. then, after a time, one went poo poo and they turned toward their shelter...

Cat in a TankTop

He know that somehow he hadn't gotten it quite right.
But he didn't mind.

He felt joyous anyway!
