Take A HikePosted: May 9, 2020 Filed under: USkO Leave a comment
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.
Pen and watercolor pencil.
Perhaps this sort-of qualifies for this week’s sketch theme; there are two boots, from different perspectives…
A Calm SoulPosted: April 17, 2020 Filed under: USkO 3 Comments
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?Posted: April 11, 2020 Filed under: USkO 1 Comment
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.
