I live to create art. Period.
I also have a 3 year old who is active, intelligent and always needing attention.
Often those two things clash. I have found recently that I'm able to sketch sometimes. Because it's portable I can doodle in my sketchbook during a tea party or while she's watching a favorite show. So I thought I would share a few recent sketches since that's all I've been able to do that last two days.
Some will become paintings. Some will become signs. Most are just for fun, to train my eye and ease my boredom.
Cats are always a popular subject since my cat art is not that great, I always need practice. I also find inspiration in the Children's books I read to Zoe like this rabbit.
Often I will start a sketch and Zoe thinks she should help me finish it.
Most are just silly little images that pop in my brain.
What would happen if a unicorn foal and a baby dragon met?
And quite a few are from the gazillion horse photos I've taken over the years. Here are two. One is from a steeplechase and the other was a groom wiping a horse's face before a grand prix jumping event at Devon.
So now that I've shared my doodles, I'd love to see some sketching from all my other blogger friends. It doesn't have to be perfect. Just have fun and make sure you comment here so I can go and see them! Oh, if they take longer than 30 minutes, I call that a drawing, not a sketch!
And if you really want to get inspired and you love horses, don't forget to visit the Whoa Team Blog I just created about a week ago. We're adding new team members all the time!
