Take A Hike

This age-old insult has taken on an entirely different meaning in these strange days. Getting on the trail has been a bright spot for us. I’m very grateful for my sturdy boots.

Perhaps this sort-of qualifies for this week’s sketch theme; there are two boots, from different perspectives…

A Calm Soul

Hello again…I wanted to share one more sketch from home…our little old guy is a calm soul through all of this.  He likes to sit and watch t.v. with us.
Pen and watercolor pencil.  Fortunately, he sits still for a while so I didn’t have to rush too much!

The New Normal?

I hope everyone at USkO and their loved ones are safe and healthy, in the upside-down world we’re in right now.

I noticed our small box of gloves and one of our fabric masks waiting for use near our front door, and felt compelled to sketch them.  They represent a little snapshot in the enormous scope of this pandemic.  Watercolor, pen and colored pencils all played a part in the sketch.

The box of gloves is what we had in our household supply.  The fabric mask was made by me.  I began sewing masks from scrap fabric and thread several weeks ago, when I sensed that this would become a necessity.  Thanks to donations of bits of spare fabric and thread from some lovely people, I’ve been able to continue making a few masks for those who request.
