The sketch-a-day challenge continues. Of course, there were a few other things going on this past week, too. More baking, more shopping, more wrapping, followed by unwrapping, feasting, resting, and a Doctor Who Christmas special. Then there was more shopping, because I love the after-Christmas sales. I did manage to do a drawing every day. Some of them are very small and some of them are very lame, but I kept going anyway, because that was the challenge.
I started last Saturday with a drawing of a frog toy. It may appear to be waving, but it actually has magnets in its hands and feet and it’s attached to something metal.
The next day, I drew another toy, a small Crayola bear that lives with my Christmas things. It looks a bit cranky; maybe it doesn’t like being put away with the Christmas things every year.
This next one is a small leaf. My brother-in-law dropped by on Christmas Eve Eve and my husband picked the leaf off his truck. We exchanged cookies with my brother-in-law and my husband gave me the leaf to draw. It’s sweet of him to look out for me that way.
As you can imagine, Christmas Eve was rather busy. I drew another leaf. This one came from the maple tree in my front yard. It’s a bit spotty.
On Christmas Day, I was even busier and I spent a lot of time in my kitchen, where my eyes fell upon the cookie jar I inherited from my mother. The proportions are a bit off, but I think my sisters will recognize it when (if?) they read my blog.
On the twenty-sixth, I was tired again from shopping, so I drew another leaf from my maple tree.
Today I chose a potted plant that lives in my dining room. I’m pretty good at leaves but I’m not good at pots. Maybe I just need some more practice.
Or some more pencils. Santa let me down, but I’ll still be watching those clearance sales.
