EDM Challenge 107 and more daily drawings....


I am definitely an NPR junkie. I have all the "talk" NPR programmed into my car radio so that I can drive across SC and never miss a lick of NPR...oddly enough you cannot do that in Georgia. My dh reads the paper cover to cover...I probably should have drawn his lips but this is our local paper thrown in our yard.
Just stuff to draw...have been buying way too many art supplies... When nothing else is holding still long enough to draw...the dogs are good for models:> I love daffodils...these are some in a pot I bought at Publix earlier this week to draw...they are going in the yard when they fade....more fast sketches of kids done thruout the week in spare moments frequently finished at home....especially the inked drawing...some look alot like the kids some dont....but they are all done in just a few seconds...under 5 minutes for the ones that are not just heads...I love all the heads...and the boy after it is probably my favorite.



and a haiku that i wrote....
fingers pointing
children's voices raised
blame is cast

Actually that is a reaction to Jeffs painting called WHO did this? which is on the cover of calendar from first citizen bank but will also be reproduced on tshirts for a hospital in Greenville...more about that later...
