Rest?

Its difficult to sleep with an active toddler around, so some cartoons and Upsie Daisy kept my granddaughter amused (more or less) while Mommy took a quick nap. I took advantage of the situation with a sketchbook and pen.


This had been preceded by a tour around the coast and lots of wandering for little legs on beaches.

Its quite difficult to capture expression or position in a toddler who is constantly moving.
Finally, the child succumbed to a base comfort - a bottle of milk - allowing me to at least capture some more structured lines.

You are a wonder making even one sketch with so many distractions, Jeanette. And very nice sketches these are too.

I'm sorry I've been missing you posts. And news of your daughter's wedding. Trying to get back into my stride now. You are well into yours with your seascapes. Brava.

And I'm so relieved you are as tentative about Twitter as I am.
