A Cat's Request

Miss Abigail lays on her back to communicate when it's time for a belly rub. She expressed some irritation that I was sketching her instead.

Baseball Practice Practice

I stumbled upon a local baseball team's afternoon practice. Kids dashing, standing inline and doing pushups in colorful, layered teeshirts. A mind boggling challenge to try to sketch, but I loved it! I'd have lots more but they started wrapping up minutes within my arrival. Now I'm on the lookout for more sessions, on sunny days!

New Moon and a Peony

The new moon was on March 22 so this sketch is not officially a new moon sketch, being done the day after. As I rounded a bend on an evening walk to the beach I was riveted by the sliver of a crescent over the Olympic mountains. And the intensity of colors at dusk was so astounding I had to sketch the scene. I was rushing to get home before dark so slap-dashed it, literally in a minute! Then ran!

I did this little sketch of my growing peony tree late afternoon.
