Shades of blue
My week has been pretty busy and I haven't had much time to do any significant drawing. I'm feeling the withdrawal of it. Saturday is my day to rush around and do errands, clean, cook and by the time I've done that I usually collapse on the sofa by late afternoon and fall asleep. Then Sunday is teaching again. It may be time to cut back a bit.
I've made some starts on portraits, both animal and human, but they haven't amounted to anything that I'd want to show the world. I have so many ideas spinning around in my head, at times just nothing comes out.
I love the shades of blues in this photo of a pond that's along my walk route. Its usually quiet there with just some wild ducks appearing to take up occupancy. Until the ice leaves the pond, the silence is interrupted by snowmobilers. Living in the country, most people think its a quiet, idyllic life, but at times, its quite the opposite, when either snowmobiles or ATVs race up the trail to the woods and ponds beyond the house in the wee hours of the morning.
Roll on summer...
