IF- "Stretch"

SkADaMo #30

This has been a fun month thanks to Linda Silvestri's SkADaMo idea! I still have a few loose sketches in my sketchbook that I have not had time to scan and add to the blog. (Maybe this weekend I'll get them up here)

Thank you again Linda!

SkADaMo #21... Happy Thanksgiving!

Looking forward to Apple Pie, Turkey and lots of family laughter! Hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend!

SkADaMo #20

Have been busy catching up on more work this week so I tried doing a super quick sketch on my phone tonight. It's amazing how free you feel, yet limited when trying to get detail on such a small phone!

I'm sure turkeys all around are shaking at the knees with only 2 (almost 1) day left until Thanksgiving!!

SkADaMo Day #18

Have not been strong enough since surgery on friday nor have I had any free time to sketch lately... During the Ravens Game tonight I felt inspired to sketch the lovely outfits of the Steelers. (No offense to the fashion designer who came up with that little number, I realize they were supporting history, but they still looked like a bunch of yellow jackets...) Thankful the Ravens won! Go Ravens!

SkADaMo #9 & 10... (Sort of)

Had open hernia surgery on friday so have not been too coherent lately thanks to the wonderful Oxycodone. "Tried" to draw a couple of sketches last night in a haze... This is what came out of my pencil :)

Not crazy about either of these but glad I was able to squeeze in a couple of sketches (& hold a pencil for any length of time)

I'll try more today in between comas.

Happy Veterans Day!

SkADaMo #8

During story time tonight while putting the kids to bed, this story of a little mushroom trying to find the sun was created... the kids loved it, and this image was created in my mind. (Although it always seems to turn out better in my head.)

SkADaMo #7

Thinking of all of our friends & family in NY & NJ. Praying everyone is able to stay warm tonight and that things start to look a little brighter tomorrow.

Can't even begin to imagine what you all have been through or are going through, but we are keeping you all in our thoughts & prayers... wish we could do more!

SkADaMo #2/ IF-Shy

This was last night's sketch (November 2nd)... working on one tonight still. This sketch is also for the Illustration Friday word Shy.

This little shy puppy sitting outside in the mud, is just shy... one full bowl of food. (Kind of worked for both meanings of the word.)

SkADaMo #1

Just saw another inspiring idea Created by Linda Silvestri, and reposted by Roberta Baird.

Since I work better under pressure (and had so much fun participating in Diandra Mae's Sweet Square Challenge, I'm joining along for 30 days of sketches.

Tonight's sketch is a little random, but this is what I drew while watching the CMA's. Looking forward to working on more sketches this weekend. Probably won't be as detailed as this, but we'll try!

Happy Sketching!
