I actually added to a previous blog post:
a Buzzard, not the prettiest bird on the planet some would say,
but interesting looking if a bit intimidating
when you stop and think about it ...
I like his full form, beautiful plummage, interesting red head ... from
a countryside ride we took a week or so ago ... this horse was in fact very close to town ...
I thought he looked pretty on the hill side on a sunny day in February ... good for Animal Wednesday!
And then there was Art of another sort:
Last Friday we'd dropped MY car at the mechanics this time, and had time to go to Starbucks in Fairfield for a few quick draws... The gal in the high heeled boots and cell phone sat behind DH,
but somehow he SAW her! ;-)
He told me later her hair was darker! Uh huh!
Same place different people, all very busy this early morning down the street from the court house. You could almost tell by the tension in the room who was waiting to go there and who wasn't. The guy with the newspaper was very relaxed. He wasn't going to court!
Later in the day, DH wanted to go to Fentons! For Ice Cream! As if we hadn't had enough to eat already! We can thank Patty for a lot of our Food-Outs of late, as her Starbucks Gift Card and her Fentons Gift Card took us both places in one day! Thanks Patty! I am NOT telling what I ate there!
Fast forward to Sunday ... Here I am sitting on a bench, no you can't see me, we are in Davis, and I am waiting for DH to come out of the music store. So I drew these people on the sidewalk in front of me as they passed by. I had to draw quickly as they moved just as quickly or more so ...
(Oh we'd just eaten lunch at the best new to us Fish Place in town. Brown rice, steamed and grilled veggies and huge portions of fish...delicious! We will go back there!)
Oh dear, this is a different day, a different Starbucks, which morning??? It's in Dixon. And this picture really tells you the dangers of "NOT Erasing!" See that baseball cap in the right upper corner? That guy left just as I had drawn his hat! How was I to know he didn't want to be drawn?
Now he is a ghost of himself just letting us know he WAS there!
The three kids were talking, drinking, and using a cell device. The older gentleman in the back was quite good looking, and I do think we made eye contact several times as I drew him. But I am not sure he knew I was doing it, or perhaps I am kidding myself. Who knows.
I drew so much this past week that I have a stack more waiting to be posted on Thursday for Paint Party Friday! So do stay tuned. MORE to come... at even more UN usual places!
I hope you enjoy my arty life ... I sure enjoy doing it!
