Fast away the old year passes...
As I have finished holiday shopping and shipping, I am looking back at my work, and see, as usual, that I have fallen behind. The end of the year is approaching, and I still have 10 inches to weave on the "August" tapestry. I still intend to finish it by the end of the year, so I must get to it!
Lest you think I have been doing nothing at all but shopping and traveling through the winter wonderland that is Colorado (which is basically what I have been doing,) I have posted a few little sketches from my sketchbook for you. Do not judge them harshly, as I do 5-10 minute sketches with my morning coffee, trying to catch the essence of the thing, rather than detail.
The first couple of sketches is my documentation of the fast growth of my amaryllis. I should be able to sketch it blooming on or before Christmas day!
This last little sketch is of a basset that was at the dog park when I took Booker there recently. This dog cracked me up! Most of the dogs were retrievers, or of that size. This little girl was half their size, but she not only kept up with them, but she scolded them all loudly as she did it!
