"Midwest Travelin'...Pt. 6"

ALL AROUND THE HOUSE ARE...

...Spigots and Outlets and Vents...Oh MY!

...Hinges and Handles and Lamps...What JOY!

...A Front door, a Wreath and two Handles more,

...A yellow Weber Grill...right by the back door!

Now...
One day it rained from morning 'til night...
And being from the desert...this was a great sight!
Puddles, and spashes...bricks and toes soaking wet,
'Twas a great day for sketching...think of it always? You BET!

I hope you've enjoyed this artsey "house tour"
For when the drawing bug bites...there just is no cure!
A last fact to add...and...I do so with glee:
Is that the sketches above were all done "Lead Free! "

WooHoo! :)

Spectacular entry, once again proving that the little things we don't notice every day are equally wonderful subjects for our sketchbooks!

Your sketch pages are like a breath of sunshine - yes breath of sunshine - so bright and interesting and so Well Done!! Hope that sketch bug keeps biting you!

All great pages! I especially love the spigots (new word for me ;) and vents and lamps, very cool!

Anita Davies said...

Fabulous pages and lead-free too...Wooohoo, you go girl!

Just because said...

Woo hoo? I think you should record yourself making that sound and post it to your blog. I'd pay a pretty penny to hear that!

Looks like you had fun as usual. Thanks for transferring some of your enthusiasm... it's contagious.

I see you used the word "spigot" for your top drawing. I'm having my lawyers look into that as I think it's a racial slur. I think it means "guy who sits around the house drinking beer" but we'll see :)

Super lead free drawings! Enjoyed the poetic tour. Don't burn down the house, for goodness sakes! Rain? What is that? And not a cacti in sight!
