End of October Art

I continue to enjoy being in the Every Day in October group where we draw to a different prompt daily. The above drawing was in response to the prompt: "Harvest"
A lot of this gets harvested in Oregon. They have whole magazines dedicated to it.

(all the photos here were taken with and from my iPad so they are not as good quality as if I had been able to scan them)

The next prompt was Presidential: I chose to draw who I feel is most likely to succeed in our next election.

Prompt: "Map":  I chose to draw a map of my life from birth to now accentuating where I came from, where I've been and where I am now.

"Geology": "Devils Tower"
A place we have visited many times and enjoyed walking around it.

Perhaps you can read some of the details about Devil's Tower in my notes here.

Prompt: "New Orleans"  A back Street Cultural Museum

Prompt: "Legend" I chose the Kiowa Tribe's legend about the formation of Devil's Tower. You can read more about that here.

And of course I continue to draw out in public at places like Starbucks ...

... and Powell's Books in Portland, Oregon

... and Harlow's where they make the best Vegan Chili on the planet!!!!

Visiting my son, Daughter in law and grandkids is the best!

So of course I draw them too...

And 4 year old Allie draws too, sometimes with me (above) and by herself (below) ...

This trip began with a short visit in Ashland with our cousin Betsy, an art store and for us, cheap gas!

Having a creative week. Having fun visiting art stores, good places to eat, being with family, being cold, experiencing a little rain, beautiful fall colors, and just being in vacation mode. I hope your week is filled with creativity and joy as well.

Thanks for stopping by letting me share my art with you.Your comments are much appreciated and they really do aid in keeping me drawing.

See you next week!
