There Always Seems To Be..."

...something around to draw...
while sitting around waiting, and waiting, and waiting...
for "this or that"!
The fire extinguisher was drawn lead free...
ink straight in...
(which explains the wonkiness of it)
at the gate.
The swirls and botanical bits were drawn
in flight...
after awakening from a long snooze.
(Note departure time...yawn!)
Color was added back in Arizona.
:)

"A new idea is delicate.
It can be killed by a sneer or a yawn;
it can be stabbed to death by a joke
or
worried to death
by a frown on the right person's brow."

Welcome back to AZ. It is amazing how one can find something to draw and make it look interesting even if a mundane subject. The quote is oh so true.

something we see and we take for granted all the time, but you've paid such a nice tribute to an essential life saving device =) Beautiful

Lovely! I love the way the flowers and leaves come out of it - really changes it!

Great drawing! I like the line work and the color and the whole composition of it. It's a perfect example of noticing an everyday thing.

I love your art! You know that.
That departure time is crazy lady!
Ouch. Wonder you could draw at all, and yet it turned out ever so well.

When I get back to the learning center on Monday, I am going to do a little painting behind the fire extinguisher. Thanks for the inspiration and idea, Margaret! I am thinking I could find a bunch of objects that could use a little life peeking out from behind.
