ninja star birthday card

Yesterday I bought an x-acto knife at Blick to sharpen my colored pencils.  It works great on Crayola ones but not on these 'create like crazy' (Target?) ones here at work.  I really wanna do some watercolor messing-around but colored pencils aren't bad, are they? It's fun to mix them.

little temple on a hill

my boss wants me to draw a sunset in the background and frame it and give it to her, lol.  what a sweet thing to say, especially just when I'm starting to think I don't have any talent for drawing after all.  I never know quite how to make a finished drawing, though.  I wish I could go back to school or take a class for that.  Maybe the stacks of art books I get from the library can help with that. 

I like how it took me three tries for the roof. :)

I'd like to get better at drawing trees and rocks. It's fun drawing buildings though.

yellow lilacs

The other day I passed some yellow flowers that smelled just like lilacs.  Do yellow lilacs exist?
I hate working on a Saturday.  Without even a window or fresh air...


I couldn't think of the word 'thumb drive' and had to ask someone what these are called.  Sometimes all you can manage is to draw something very, very small.  I think that's alright.
