I've gone back to the "drawing board"...

Anyone who knows me knows I have this "craft-of-the-moment" mentality. So right now, I've put aside the Chinese brush painting (for a minute) and started sketching ..something I can do while on the couch in the living room with Mr. B and the pups..

And now for something really neat to watch - on the right sidebar.... reminds me of the cartoon kid (Sherman, Mr. Peabody's pet-boy assistant) that used to say "And now for something really important.."

I LOVE LOVE LOVE video - watch the whole thing..you'll be happier than before you watched, I promise! Right there >>>

See it?>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>












I think I'm like that book "The Accidental Tourist" only I'm like the "Accidental Drawer"..no, that's not right..not DRAWER like in a chest of drawers..but a sketcher-drawer..anyway, I can't seem to do the head - or the hair- or a body ..and sometimes it starts out as a lady and has ended up as an old man..the giraffe started out to be a horse..go figure..

So what's "drawing" you lately??

Give it a "whirl"...(love that video!! Go watch it...again...seriously..)

I just love your drawings, they have an innocent softness about them. The video looked interesting too. The other day i discovered how to make the video smaller so that it fits on the side bar. I did it on Birthday Bear's own blog. Have you seen it yet?

Anyway I looked into the HTML for the video and saw 'width' and 'height' measurements. I took a punt and changed them and after a few goes I got the right size. I used 225x174. There are two places where it has to be changed.

Have a super-duper weekend, Colleen. :)

Thank you so much for your kind words....and I loved the video just what I needed this morning. Daughters house is getting put back together slowly! Fire is a wicked thing!

Your talents just keep pouring forth. I've always been envious of artists, if I were to start drawing a horse it would end up being a TREE the only thing I can sketch with any resemblance of likeness! I so need a copy of your princess with the crown.....fits my daughter perfectly!

Ooh, you may think your drawings aren't just right; but, I DO! "The eyes have it!" What fun things you can do...you are SO creative!

Not that I'm a synical person....(no not much) ... but I'd feel better if you put a copyright mark on those pictures. They are so cool. It seems somebody somewhere would pay you for children's books artwork. They are wonderful!
