A Few Pages From My Sketchbook, and a Piece of My Mind.....


I have had a large blessing of houseguests recently, which is typical in Colorado in the summer, and is much more frequent for me since my parents moved here, almost two years ago. I cannot weave when I have houseguests; too many other things needing doing, and too many interruptions for such a solitary pursuit. But I have found small moments to sketch. All of these images are inspired by photos people have shared on the Sktchy app (#sktchy.)



These two bottom sketches were done after the horror of the latest mass shooting in Orlando. I am getting pretty angry about the regularity and persistence of these events. Although I try to keep politics off this blog, more and more I am convinced that we DO need a Grandmother in the White House now. Grandmothers care about the lives of loved ones; our own and the loved ones of others. Maybe Congress should also be filled with Grandmothers. Wouldn't our world be a better place if the love and experience and wisdom of a lot of grandmothers were in charge? Just the thoughts of a very concerned grandmother for you to chew on today.....
