ugh, where did the grey go?

what's up with my scanner? i lost most of the grey in this one too... any way, i got back from seattle last night. this morning i got a call from my daughter, someone broke into her apartment and stole her purse and laptop. her purse had several hundred dollars and a couple checks to deposit to the bank, her camera, and ipod. she was in the apartment at the time. thank God, she wasn't hurt or anything. i told her the material stuff will eventually be replaced and the checks and debit card are an easy fix (done). i wish we were closer to where she's at. i pray everything gets better for her.

went simple

did a simple drawing this morning. i'll be driving to seattle this afternoon, to take my daughter back to school. hope i see a bunch of cool stuff to take pictures of while i'm there.

this didn't scan right...

for some reason the scanner didn't pick-up all the different tones and colors. oh well, another page done. time for bed...

only half?

while i was drawing this, my son asked why i was drawing only half of the face? good question, i tried to explain, but he didn't get it.
today was an alright day, i trimmed a lot of trees and shrubs. in the process i nearly cut off the tip of my left thumb... ouch!

more trash along the trail...

Saw this, thing, while hiking the other day. Somebody must have found it in the woods and slung it out on the trail. Tried to resurrect it in a drawing. It is bed time, good night.

shuffling along

I see this old guy shuffling along the streets quite a bit. I often wonder what his story is (we all have one). decided to do a quick drawing tonight. Suk has me busy working on this "old" house. Tomorrow I'll visit an artist friend and also take in some roller derby action. If I can get motivated to draw I will.

watched part of a parade

took my car to the dealership to get some work done on it today. while waiting, someone mentioned the st. patty's day parade. i walked downtown and watched for a little while. when i got home i decided to walk through the woods in search of deer, turkey, coyotes, moose, etc. i didn't see anything... did a little yard work and then drew this. have a great weekend!

another night another poor drawing...

work has been rough lately, but at least it's a job. home has been odd? drawing hasn't produced the desire effects lately... friday is only a couple days away:) hope your days have been better.

eye, eye

busy weekend, friday was first friday downtown. i walked about the galleries and talked to friends. had a great night! saturday my son and i went for a bike ride (after i tuned-up the bikes). we also took suk's winter tires off her van (hope we don't get the snow they're coming for). today i worked on the yard and replaced tires on the mountain bikes (paul blew out one on the trail and i noticed my tread was pretty worn). tonight i finally did a drawing, after grilling salmon, taters, and squash... mm mm!

i want a "new" car...

been looking for another one of these. i drove one for years, and really miss all the fun i had with it. saw one a couple weeks ago that was incredible. it had all the bells and whistles (probably a very expensive project). mine looked a bit worn but would get anywhere...
